Roger Waters, a founding member of the rock band Pink Floyd, says Facebook offered him a lot of money to use the band’s 1979 classic “Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2” in an Instagram advertisement and he refused.
“It arrived this morning, with an offer for a huge, huge amount of money,” Waters said this month at an event reported on by Rolling Stone. “And the answer is: ‘F— you. No f—ing way.'”
“I only mention that because this is an insidious movement of them to take over absolutely everything,” he continued, adding of Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg: “I will not be a party to this bulls—, Zuckerberg.”
Far Out Magazine previously reported that the band refused to allow its music to be used for any advertisements that weren’t for a “good cause.”
