Trump FCC Chair Ajit Pai will probably get his way on net neutrality

Which Trump-appointed government official do celebrities hate most?

The competition is stiff, but the front-runner appears to be Ajit Pai, the mild-mannered 44-year-old chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, who has recently provoked the Twitter ire of famous faces like Cher, Alyssa Milano, and John Oliver.

That’s because Pai is promising to repeal net neutrality regulations, the 2015 rules designed to ensure that internet providers treat all internet data equally.

Next week, the FCC will vote on the proposal. And it looks like Pai is going to get his way.
