    Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerberg, arrives to meet France's President Emmanuel Macron after the "Tech for Good" Summit at the Elysee Palace in Paris, Wednesday, May 23, 2018.

    Anger and frustration boiled over at Facebook’s annual shareholder meeting on Thursday, turning the typically uneventful gathering into a chance for investors to confront company executives after a scandal-ridden year.

    The meeting felt like a revolt at times, NBC News reported, as investors hammered CEO Mark Zuckerberg with questions about his leadership, control of the company and handling of the Cambridge Analytica data-harvesting scandal.

    “Emulate George Washington, not Vladimir Putin,” one investor told Zuckerberg, referring to Washington’s decision to step down as president.
