Facebook is reportedly demanding to inspect the phone and computer of Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Christopher Wylie.
According to the Guardian’s Carole Cadwalladr, Facebook demanded to inspect Wylie’s devices on Tuesday morning. In response, Wylie seemed surprised by the request and asked Cadwalladr whether they wanted to “look through my d*ck pics.”

Wylie himself then went on Twitter to clarify that he has been “proactively working with the UK authorities for months before this story came out.”
“Facebook is not the authority here,” he added.
I should probably point out that I have been proactively working with the UK authorities for months before this story came out. @facebook is not the authority here, the @ICOnews is. https://t.co/bIh73Y5XgT
