#DeleteFacebook started trending Monday after it was learned that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has reportedly been hosting get-togethers with prominent conservatives, including journalists, commentators and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. since July.

A cybersecurity researcher told Politico Zuckerberg is worried that Attorney General William Barr and the Justice Department could take some kind of action to break up Facebook.

In addition to Graham, Zuckerberg reportedly met with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, radio host Hugh Hewitt and conservative commentator Ben Shapiro among others.

There were “informal talks and small, off-the-record dinners,” aimed at cultivating relationships on the right as President Donald Trump rails against social media companies he sees as biased against conservatives. Trump said in June the U.S. government should sue Google and Facebook.
