Mark Zuckerberg’s Fourth of July social media post showing him riding an electric surfboard while holding an American flag as John Denver’s Take Me Home, Country Roads plays is getting the meme treatment.

Social media users photoshopped Jaws into the image, depicting the massive killer shark  about to devour ‘the Zuck.’ 

Others added Zuckerberg with the flag into the film Titanic. The patriotic tech mogul is seen on a board in the flooded hallways of the doomed ship while Kate Winslet’s character, Rose, wanders nearby.

Another creative social media user photoshopped Zuckerberg onto the Gulf of Mexico, where an oil pipeline operated by Mexico’s state-owned firm Pemex burst, causing a gas leak.

Dramatic images show a large ‘eye of fire’-type explosion causing orange flames to light up the sea – creating a scene that could be mistaken for a Hollywood action flick.

The ‘Zuckerberg in the Gulf of Mexico’ meme was enhanced with a famous meme – Sen. Bernie Sanders crossing his arms and legs while wearing mittens during Joe Biden’s inauguration.

Another social media user compared Zuckerberg’s surf ride to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s highly publicized images of him riding a horse. ‘Same energy,’ commented a social media user

In another meme, Zuckerberg is seen holding a Chinese flag rather than an American one. While Facebook is blocked in China, the company has been accused of a liberal bias, particularly in light of its decision to bar former President Donald Trump from its platform

Another social media user photoshopped the image of a monkey on Zuckerberg’s face, remarking that the Facebook founder was emitting ‘circus chimp vibe.’

The one-minute video was mocked by some social media users while others criticized the billionaire for an apparent publicity stunt. 

Zuckerberg, whose company also owns Instagram, recently said the site is ‘no longer a photo-sharing app’ while the tech giant tries to compete with TikTok and YouTube in the video sector.

‘Video is driving an immense amount of growth online for all the major platforms right now and it’s one that I think we need to lean into more,’ Adam Mosseri, the head of Instagram, said, according to Financial Times. ‘We are no longer a photo sharing app.’

Twitter user Chris Messina called the Zuckerberg video ‘proof’ of the change.

In a comment made to Zuckerberg’s post on Instagram, one person referenced a decision from a federal judge last Monday dismissing antitrust complaints filed against Facebook by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and attorneys general from 48 of the 50 states in the United States.

As noted by CNBC, Facebook might have been required to divest Instagram and WhatsApp if it had lost the antitrust lawsuits. 

‘When you get your antitrust lawsuit thrown about by a judge. Let’s GOOOOO Zuck!’ the commenter wrote.

Others simply wrote that Zuckerberg was ‘destroying America.’

‘Flying the flag of the country you’re trying to destroy, classic,’ @menriquez86 commented on Instagram. 

Others joked that Zuckerberg ‘may have united the left and the right in America: just not in the way he planned.’

‘I wish they could bring John Denver back to life just so he could sue Mark Zuckerberg for this,’ @TheRealHoarse tweeted.

HuffPost editor Philip Lewis tweeted: ‘Someone told Mark Zuckerberg to act totally normal for July 4th.’
