In an exclusive interview with Independent, Waters said, "It's a request for the rights to use my song, 'Another Brick in the Wall, Pt 2' in the making of a film to promote Instagram."

He then went on by saying, "So it's a missive from Mark Zuckerberg to me arrived this morning, with an offer of a huge, huge amount of money, and the answer is - f*** you! No f***ing way!"

"And I only mention that because it's the insidious movement of them to take over absolutely everything. So those of us who do have any power, and I do have a little bit - in terms of control of the publishing of my songs I do anyway. So I will not be a party to this bull****, Zuckerberg," Waters Added.
