Further controversy ensues at the construction site of Meta's data center in Eagle Mountain, Utah, with the discovery of a noose. This is not the first time racist activity has been found to be occurring on the site. Back in November, racist graffiti was written across the site's toilets.

Contractor M.A. Mortenson Co. proceeded to offer a $100,000 reward for information to identify the person responsible for the most recent act, however, according to reports, the individual responsible voluntarily came forward and was later fired. This individual has not been named.

In a statement, Meta said that it has a "zero tolerance for any racist acts" It added: "While this is a challenge facing the entire industry, we're working with our general contractors to implement measures that will help prevent them at any of our construction sites. At the Eagle Mountain site, we are working closely with Mortenson and trade leaders to identify the perpetrator(s) of these acts."
