Randi Zuckerberg Peddles Book On Twitter ‘In Honor’ Of Veteran’s Day


Randi Zuckerberg

Randi Zuckerberg isn’t alone in using Veteran’s Day and social media to push product, but her attempt to peddle her new book definitely ranks among the more tasteless we’ve seen today, and it looks like a majority of Twitter users agree.

Randi, the sister of Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, tweeted the following this morning:

Just in case she wises up and deletes it, here’s a screencap.

Though we’ve seen too many promises of “blowout sales” and “doorbuster deals” commemorating Veteran’s Day to count, Randi Zuckerberg’s misguided attempt at self-promotion has struck a particularly sour chord online.

Here’s a look at the reaction she’s been getting:

Us too, Mr. Isaac. Us too.

The interesting thing is that Randi Zuckerberg is already a pretty controversial figure in the tech/social media industry. Though she did indeed do real work for Facebook, and other real work before and since, her career is considered by many to be the product of nepotism.

As always, we leave it to you to decide the merits of that, but we will join in the chorus of shaming Randi for peddling her book in “honor” of Veteran’s Day.

We’ve reached out to Randi Zuckerberg for comment on how many signed copies of her book she has managed to give away today. We’ll update this post if/when she responds.
