Mark Zuckerberg has live streamed a virtual reality tour of hurricane-devastated Puerto Rico.The Facebook founder explored a number of locations using an Occulus Rift headset and Facebook's Spaces app, broadcasting the experience to his followers.But some have questioned whether the sight of one of the world's wealthiest men in cartoon form against the backdrop of a disaster zone was entirely appropriate.Many have branded the footage 'disaster porn', claiming he is 'exploiting disaster' by broadcasting a tone-deaf promo.

Zuckerberg appeared in the stream alongside Facebook's head of social virtual reality, Rachel Franklin.The pairs' avatars transported between various locations during the broadcast, including the moon and Zuckerberg's living room.Scenes of destruction in the US island territory were taken from a 360-degree video from NPR, which documents the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.Speaking in the footage, a smiling Zuckerberg said: 'One of the things that's really magical about VR is you can get the feeling you're really in a place.Rachel and I aren't even in the same building in the physical world, but it feels like we're in the same place and can make eye contact.'It feels like we're really here in Puerto Rico.'  The pair shared a 'high five', before discussing Facebook's efforts to help with disaster relief.
