San Francisco Supervisor Aaron Peskin is trying to get Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's name removed from a local hospital in response to the recent scandals connected to the social media giant, according to a report in Business Insider.

Peskin on Tuesday asked the city attorney how to go about removing Zuckerberg's name from San Francisco General Hospital, a facility to which Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan donated $75 million, Business Insider reported.

Peskin also asked that the city revisit its policy on offering naming rights in exchange for gifts, according to remarks provided to the business site.

Earlier this year, nurses working at the hospital protested over the attachment of the Facebook CEO's name to the facility in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan donated $75 million to the institution in 2015 in exchange for naming rights. But Peskin believes the name now reflects poorly on the city.

"We'll see what my colleagues in the public think about this, but I think it's a wakeup call to Facebook that it's time to reform their corporate culture," he said.

If the city ultimately approves removing the name, it may have to return some or all of the money donated by Zuckerberg should he request it.
