Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg was grilled by US senators for five hours yesterday over the recent Facebook data scandal.
The world's media focused in on the congressional hearing after it emerged that 87 million of the site’s users had their profile information accessed by marketing company Cambridge Analytica.
However, one thing that caught the attention of a lot of people was the fact that Zuckerberg was sitting on a booster cushion.
The 33 year old is only 5ft 7' so he was placed on a 4 inch booster seat so he could be seen properly by the intimidating wall of 44 senators.
Here's the evidence:

Mark Zuckerberg looked like a usual defendant, awkwardly wearing a suit for the first time, that someone had to pick out for him. He also had to use a booster seat when he testified. This is a real picture: pic.twitter.com/5gvgASAYIQ
