The conservative artist known as Sabo hung "F*ck Zuck 2020" posters, the symbol after the "F" being a middle finger, in various California cities, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The notice to shut down his page appeared on 14 August. "Your page has been unpublished for using hate speech," read the message at the Unsavory Agents fan page run by Sabo.

Sabo, a known critic of liberal politics of celebrities and corporations, conducts business transactions at the website named Unsavory Agents. "It took a week, but it finally came down, " the artist, who uses the pen name Sabo, told The Hollywood Reporter.

"Zuckerberg isn't only a thief, he's thin-skinned," Sabo added. Sabo's art also attacked in the past 2016 US presidential aspirants Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.

This news comes after a German satirist, who claims Twitter is failing to delete hate speech, has captured the social media giant's attention offline — by stencilling the offending messages outside its Hamburg office.

The Jewish man, Shahak Shapira, claimed that Twitter had just responded to just nine of his 300 complaints in six months, the BBC reported.
