Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey has sent shockwaves on the social media platform he created after he told Rolling Stone about one very particular dinner he once shared with a fellow tech executive — Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Asked about his “most memorable encounter” with the Facebook founder, he said that Zuckerberg killed a goat for him for dinner during the year when he pledged to eat what he was killing.
“He kills it with a laser gun and then the knife. Then they send it to the butcher”, the tech tycoon responded, making the interview question the “laser gun” part.
Dorsey guessed that it was a stun gun, after all, one should have used to knock an animal unconscious before knifing. He recollected that there’s a rule or regulation that you can have six livestock on any lot of land in the world’s tech centre, Palo Alto, California.
“I go, ‘We’re eating the goat you killed?’ He said, ‘Yeah”. I said, ‘Have you eaten goat before?’ He’s like, ‘Yeah, I love it’. I’m like, ‘What else are we having?’ ‘Salad’. I said, ‘Where is the goat?’ ‘It’s in the oven’”, the Twitter co-founder reminisced.
However, it was not the only surprise that night. According to Dorsey, they waited for about 30 minutes before going to the dining room to find that it was cold. According to him, it was “memorable”, admitting he just ate his salad.
“I don’t know what you’re going to do with that, but hopefully that’s not the headline. Revenge is a dish best served warm. Or cold”, Dorsey said anticipating the uproar.
As soon as the interview came out, Zuckerberg was slammed for his “cruelty” online.

He received different kinds of descriptions like a “nut job” or sociopath.

Some jokingly referred to it as to both a satanic ritual and PR job.

Zuckerberg killing a goat with a laser gun is probably the best PR he's had in at least 6 years— Very Stable Genius (@Rantaramic) 23 января 2019 г.

There was no shortage of hilarious memes with shocked goats and celebrities.
There’s a lot to unpack on that one. pic.twitter.com/KBDZW0kb2x— Ben Carpenter (@thebencarpenter) 24 января 2019 г.
It was only a matter of time before the slaughtered goat got his own Twitter account.
I wanna tweet some smack talk about being the GOAT but I'm not feeling up to it after being shot with a laser gun and eaten by two weirdos— Mark Zuckerberg's Goat (@ZuckerbergsGoat) 24 января 2019 г.
In 2011, Mark Zuckerberg made eating only the meat of animals that he himself killed his personal challenge, which he sets publicly each year.
“I’ve learned a lot about sustainable farming and raising of animals. It’s easy to take the food we eat for granted when we can eat good things every day”, he said to Fortune then.
