For those who came in late, Zuckerburg has been involved with a land grab in Hawaii where he uses the power of his lawyers to force hundreds of Hawaiians to sell him small plots of land they own that lie within the boundaries of a 700-acre beachfront property on the island of Kauai.
This is particularly nasty given that the land has been in Hawaiian hands for a few hundred years and there is no way that Zuckerburg cannot look evil.
Now the Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says he is “reconsidering” a set of lawsuits now that the the move has attracted widespread publicity.
What has got Zuckerberg’s goat is that the families have the rights to travel across Zuckerberg’s property. He insists that most of the natives don’t even know they own land there.
Last week, Zuckerberg insisted that “For most of these folks, they will now receive money for something they never even knew they had. No one will be forced off the land”.
