WTH: A Facebook Employee Reportedly Blow-Dried Mark Zuckerberg’s Armpits to get Rid of His Anxiety Sweat

How’s your Friday going America? Pretty good until you read that headline right?

The following is from our friends at BusinessInsider.com

According to a new report, members of Facebook’s communications team reportedly blow-dry Mark Zuckerberg’s armpits before big speeches to get rid of his anxiety-induced sweat. 

The anecdote comes from “Facebook: the Inside Story,” a new book coming out this month by Wired’s Steven Levy, according to a review by Bloomberg’s Austin Carr

Notably, there’s some historical context here that supports the notion that Zuckerberg sweats under pressure: Famously, Zuckerberg visibly sweated in an on-stage interview with tech journalist Kara Swisher at an event in 2010.

“I doubt this is true and if so it would have been at our communications team’s request, but surely anyone who has ever worn a grey t-shirt can relate,” Facebook spokesperson Liz Bourgeois told Business Insider in an email in response to the blow dryer claims.

Meanwhile, Zuckerberg is portrayed in the book as somewhere “between naive genius and robotic robber baron,” according to Carr, who added that Zuckerberg “is consumed by his public image.”
