Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is firing back against the claims made by whistleblower Frances Haugen, who accused the company of prioritizing profits over user safety.

Zuckerberg had been silent since Haugen came forward in a 60 Minutes interview, but he broke his silence last night after she testified in front of a Senate subcommittee about the company’s practices. He wrote in a Facebook post, “At the heart of these accusations is this idea that we prioritize profit over safety and well-being. That’s just not true.”

He continued, “Of everything published, I’m particularly focused on the questions raised about our work with kids. I’ve spent a lot of time reflecting on the kinds of experiences I want my kids and others to have online, and it’s very important to me that everything we build is safe and good for kids.” He went on to say “many of the claims don’t make any sense” and “The argument that we deliberately push content that makes people angry for profit is deeply illogical.”
