Mr. Monopoly in the face of the American parliamentarians. Here is a scene that may seem incongruous, but that was held in the United States Congress at the hearing of Sundar Pichai, Tuesday, December 11. While the CEO of Google explained the accusations of political orientation of the search engine, the activist Ian Madrigal was invited to the public bench dressed in the manner of the famous board game. The objective of this discreet but noted intervention: to denounce the use that Google makes of the personal data of its users.
And no way for him to do things halfway. Eyes fixed on the camera, the activist changes his mustache with each question. The more complicated it is, the bigger the mustache.
This is not the first time that Ian Madrigal appears disguised as Mr. Monopoly during an audition. Last November, he appeared as CEO of Equifax in the US Senate. So, he wants companies like Google to make more efforts to protect personal data and to be held accountable for their actions.
