Frances Haugen – who went from nobody to testifying on Capitol Hill within a matter of days – has been demanding mass censorship on social media, particularly aimed at those who don’t share her worldview.
But her own behavior on social media may serve to undermine her moral authority on the matter.
A private profile linked to Haugen which appeared in her biography for speaking events such as the 2015 Girl Geek Dinner reveals an even more bizarre side to the former Facebook staffer. It also contains posts detailing work for her previous employers such as Google and her time attending Harvard Business School.
Among them, Haugen tells jokes stereotyping “brown men” and mathematics while recounting her airborne attempts at flirting.
