facebook-dislike-button.jpgIf you're a Facebook user, you probably noticed your news feed blowing up this Wednesday with a slew of one-minute films featuring snapshots of your friends' Facebook lives. They're called "look-back" videos, launched to coincide with Facebook's 10th anniversary. And they've been a big hit.

Because there's another big thing happening this week -- you know, the anti-LGBT Sochi Winter Olympics in Vladimir Putin's virulently anti-LGBT Russia -- it was only a matter of time before someone combined the week's biggest Facebook phenomenon with the week's biggest news story. And voilĂ : YouTube user Eyerock created a Facebook look-back movie for Russian President Vladimir Putin highlighting his country's toxic homophobia.

The video is after the jump. Ummmm, enjoy?
