Earlier this week San Francisco Supervisor Aaron Peskin asked the city attorney to look into the possibility of removing the “Zuckerberg” name from Prescilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. Peskin is exploring the renaming in response to Facebook’s use of opposition research firms and misuse of user data. Controversy around the name of the city’s public hospital is not new. Formerly “San Francisco General Hospital,” the name was changed after Chan and Zuckerberg donated $75 million to the hospital in 2015. We’d like to hear from you — Should Zuckerberg’s name be removed?
