Arnold Schwarzenegger Lights Up Cigar At Facebook Smoke-Free Campus

In violation of company policy, Arnold Schwarzenegger lit up a cigar in a recent visit to the Facebook corporate headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif.

Schwarzenegger apparently wasn’t just blowing smoke about terminating the smoking ban at least for himself; he documented the brazen rule-breaking at the tobacco-free Silicon Valley campus on social media.

On his own Facebook page, the actor and former California governor posted a picture of the deed holding a Montecristo cigar underneath the Facebook no-smoking sign along with this “blunt” explanation:

Facebook’s philosophy is Move Fast and Break Things, which I love. So naturally I broke some rules at their headquarters. Thanks for a great visit!”

After his puffing on his stogie, Arnold reportedly had hunger pangs. “Afterward, the Governator visited the social network’s ice cream parlor and ordered up a double scoop, spies said. (He also wanted to try the campus barbecue joint, but it was closed.)”

As The Inqusiitr previously reported Schwarzenegger will star in Terminator Genesis which is scheduled for a summer 2015 release. Filming for the Terminator reboot begins in April in New Orleans and is supposed to take four or five months to complete. Commenting on the film, Schwarzenegger said that “I’m really looking forward to that and it’s going to come out on July 4th weekend in 2015. The movie preparation is going well. The script is fantastic so I’m really looking forward to this film.”

Arnold in also starring in Sabotage which premieres on the big screen this month. He will be promoting the movie on the next WWE Monday Night Raw. The visit to the Facebook headquarters near San Francisco was reportedly also part of the Sabotage promotional campaign.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s cigar smoking (or at least displaying a cigar if not actually lighting up) at the tech giant elicited a mixed response from his Facebook fans, one of whom posted “Stop smoking Arnold! I do not want to see you terminated by lung cancer!”

Do you think it is appropriate for Arnold Schwarzenegger to “sabotage” Facebook’s tobacco-free campus?
