Twitter users mock CEO Jack Dorsey’s unkempt beard

Well, he isn’t a bald-faced liar.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey faced a Senate panel on Wednesday after coming under fire over censorship concerns — where he falsely claimed he’d lifted a ban on users posting The Post’s articles on Hunter Biden.

But that wasn’t the only controversy over his hearing — Dorsey’s facial hair also caused a big stir on his own platform.

The tech bigwig’s long, unkempt beard drew a wide range of reactions on the social media platform, with some simply labeling the look “ridiculous.”

“Does Jack Dorsey have no one in his life who loves him enough to have The Beard Conversation?” one user asked.

Noting the coronavirus lockdowns’ possible effects on personal grooming, another person tweeted: “I’ve heard of pandemic beards but this is ridiculous.”

“I do like a man with a beard but Jack Dorsey looks like he smells foosty. Sorry to be mean but he just does,” one user wrote.

Dorsey was also compared to the infamous Russian mystic Rasputin and to Tom Hanks’ character in “Castaway.”

Others thought his chin locks were more reminiscent of Santa Claus, Osama Bin Laden, Gandalf from the “Lords of the Rings” trilogy or even a “wannabe ‘Game of Thrones’ character.”

“I think there may be some Russian interference involved with @jack Dorsey’s beard,” one person joked in reference to Rasputin.

Some users pointed out that with an estimated $10 billion net worth, Dorsey surely could afford to look less disheveled.

“Nice beard Jack Dorsey. With all that money you should really buy a razor,” one user tweeted.

Another person quipped: “Jack Dorsey’s beard has grown in direct proportion to his wealth and power.”

By early afternoon, “Jack Dorsey’s Beard” had its own Twitter account, which also poked fun at the entrepreneur’s gold nose ring.
