Facebook员工对公司高管出席Kavanaugh听证会不满_最新英语新闻

Hundreds of Facebook employees have expressed outrage about a top global policy executive’s decision to support Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and appear at his hearing last week, people familiar with the matter said.

知情人士称,对于Facebook Inc. (FB)的一位全球政策高管支持最高法院大法官提名人Brett Kavanaugh并在上周出席了其提名听证会的决定,数百名Facebook员工表示了愤怒。

Employees raised the question directly to Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg during his weekly question-and-answer session last Friday, the people said. Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg also weighed in on the controversy on Friday in an internal discussion thread that has so far drawn hundreds of comments, many of which were critical, according to people who reviewed the posts.

知情人士称,员工们上周五在与Facebook首席执行长扎克伯格(Mark Zuckerberg)举行的每周问答会上向他直接提出了上述问题。据阅读了公司内部讨论帖的人说,Facebook首席营运长Sheryl Sandberg也在上周五的一份内部讨论帖中就这一争议发表了意见。这条讨论帖已经有数百条留言,其中很多都是批评性的。

The debate began shortly after an image of Joel Kaplan, Facebook’s head of global policy, surfaced in the middle of Judge Kavanaugh’s lengthy hearing last Thursday, people familiar with the company said. His appearance quickly became an internal referendum on how Facebook’s top executives felt about the #MeToo movement, Trump-era politics and freedom of speech and expression, the people said.

知情人士表示,当Facebook全球政策负责人Joel Kaplan出席上周四Kavanaugh冗长的提名听证会的照片出现后不久,上述讨论就开始了。知情人士称,Kaplan在听证会上的露面迅速演变成公司内部就一系列问题的公投,包括Facebook的高管如何看待#MeToo运动、特朗普时代的政治以及言论和表达自由。

Mr. Zuckerberg said last Friday he wouldn’t have made the same decision but the appearance didn’t violate Facebook policies and that Mr. Kaplan has long been close friends with Judge Kavanaugh.

扎克伯格上周五说,换做他不会做这样的决定,但Kaplan的露面并没有违反Facebook政策,而且Kaplan一直是法官Kavanaugh的密友。

The controversy hasn’t died down internally. Senior Facebook executives, including Mr. Zuckerberg and Ms. Sandberg, are planning to hold a town hall meeting Friday to address employee concerns about Mr. Kaplan’s decision, people close to Facebook say. Mr. Kaplan, who is based in Washington, D.C., will participate as well, the people said.

这场争论尚未在内部得到平息。据知情人士透露,包括扎克伯格和Sandberg在内的Facebook高管计划周五召开一次员工大会,以化解员工对Kaplan所做决定的担忧。该人士称,长驻华盛顿的Kaplan也将出席此次会议。
