Maybe you’ve heard of Mark Zuckerberg? He’s that Facebook guy and the world’s youngest billionaire and kind of a big deal. It’s understandable that people would want to be like Zuckerberg, even if he is notoriously awkward and salty. But who wants to actually be Mark Zuckerberg?

Short answer: Rotem Guez.

The Israeli entreprenuer has officially changed his name to Mark Zuckerberg. (Check the photo: That’s Guez/Zuckerberg holding up his Israeli passport.) It’s a gimmick, a way of getting back at Facebook. This Zuckerberg runs the online Like Store, and a Facebook attorney reportedly told him to shut it down or face a lawsuit.

Via the AP:

He’s telling Facebook: “If you want to sue me, you’re going to have to sue Mark Zuckerberg.”
