Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk, two billionaires and rivals in the social media industry, traded additional online barbs on Sunday, with the inventor of Meta claiming that the owner of X, formerly known as Twitter, was not taking a suggested charity cage battle seriously.
On his social media platform Threads, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg said, “I think we can all agree Elon isn’t serious and it’s time to move on.”
I proposed a genuine date… Elon declines to commit to a date, claims he requires surgery, and then requests to play a practice round in my garden in its place.
Musk answered right away on X, the website he acquired last year and which was once known as Twitter.
On his social media platform Threads, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg said, “I think we can all agree Elon isn’t serious and it’s time to move on.
“Zuck is a chicken,” Musk posted.
The CEO of Tesla said that he would travel to Silicon Valley on Monday: I’m eager to knock on his door the next day.
Musk made a reference to a well-known US fast food establishment famed for its chicken selections in response to an X user who said Zuckerberg was having second thoughts about the match.
Musk wrote on Twitter, “He can’t eat at Chick-fil-A because that would be cannibalism.
On social media, the two tech titans have debated facing off in a highly publicized charity match.
Musk announced the fight’s location on Friday as Italian officials acknowledged discussions about hosting a “great charity event.”
Musk wrote, “I spoke to the PM of Italy and Minister of Culture,” alluding to Giorgia Meloni, the Italian Prime Minister. They have chosen an amazing spot.
In retaliation, Zuckerberg published a picture of himself in his “backyard octagon” grappling with a foe while not wearing a shirt.
Involved in jiujitsu contests and a fan of martial arts, Zuckerberg declared, “I love this sport and I’ve been ready to fight since the day Elon challenged me.”
“You’ll hear it from me if he ever accepts an actual date. Please take whatever he says till then as unconfirmed.
Speaking with Musk about “how to create a spectacular charity event recalling history” was verified by the Italian Culture Minister Gennaro Sangiuliano, although he added that any match “will not be
Any Musk-hosted event, according to Sangiuliano, would raise “a huge sum, many millions of euros, (that) will be donated to two significant pediatric hospitals in Italy.”
The two internet titans, who had previously sparred from a distance, are now direct rivals thanks to Zuckerberg’s Meta’s July 1 launch of its platform called Threads, which is similar to Twitter.
Musk mentioned on Friday that he might require “minor surgery” to address a “problem with my right shoulder blade rubbing against my ribs.”
“Recovery will only take a few months,” he added.
The world’s richest person has a titanium plate holding two vertebrae together but said Friday it is currently “not an issue.”
