Rami Malek makes first Instagram post with Stephen Colbert
In one of the first episodes of <Mr. Robot, Rami Malek’s protagonist Elliot explained why he didn’t have a Facebook profile: “Because I hate Facebook.” The real-life Malek is obviously very different from the neurotic cyber revolutionary he plays on TV, but the two do share a healthy skepticism about social media.
“I’m not crazy about social media, because I think it’s a little bit polarizing,” Malek told Stephen Colbert on The Late Show on Tuesday night. “It’s difficult to figure out exactly what’s happening on social media. Things seem very manicured. I think it pits people against each other.”
