'Zuck Is a ****' – Musk Lashes Out Against Zuckerberg Amid Launch of 'Twitter Killer' Threads App


Twitter owner Elon Musk called Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg a mean name on Twitter amid an ongoing feud between the Big Tech billionaires.

Zuckerberg’s recent launch of a new platform called Threads, which is designed to compete with Twitter, has sparked a war of words between the pair.

On Sunday, Musk responded to a screenshot that was posted of an exchange between the fast food chain Wendy’s and the Facebook founder.

“[H]ey @zuck, you should go to space just to really make him mad lol,” the account wrote.

Zuckerberg responded with a laughing emoji.

On Wednesday, Alex Spiro, a lawyer for Twitter, said the company was considering suing Meta due to “systematic, willful and unlawful misappropriation of Twitter’s trade secrets and other intellectual property,” USA Today reported.

Zuckerberg and Musk have also been rumored to be preparing for a cage match, as former MMA stars have lined up to offer to help train Musk.

“Talked with Mark and Elon last night, both guys are absolutely dead serious about this,” White told TMZ Sports last month.

No match is currently scheduled.
