'Space Karen' Elon Musk Blames Fellow Billionaire, Mark Zuckerberg For Deadly Capitol Attack
Ahhh, rich tech tycoons, they're just like us -- and by just like us, I mean they too shade the hell out of their frenemies on Twitter.
On Wednesday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk took a break from attempting to colonize Mars, selling nearly all his worldly possessions, tanking his stocks via social media post or well, whatever the world's newly-minted richest man alive happens to do in his free time, to absolutely dunk on the fellow billionaire, Mark Zuckerberg, indirectly blaming the Facebook founder for last Wednesday's Capitol siege.
"This is called the domino effect," Musk wrote alongside a meme, tying together the creation of the social networking giant with last week's events, proving Musk's latest endeavor is in the business of shade.
Yet this is far from the first time the SpaceX founder has poked fun (get it, poked, like a Facebook poke?) at the world's second most-famous Harvard dropout (the first, of course, being Lil Pump). The duo have had beef for years, according to Business Insider. When one of Musk's rocket decimated a Facebook's satellite back in 2016, Zuckerberg decimated the infamous Space Karen right back, issuing a statement that he felt "deeply disappointed" in the entrepreneur's failure. Afterward, Musk made a big show of deleting his companies' Facebook pages as the social platform weathered the Cambridge Analytica scandal, later tweeting that Facebook gave him a bad case of "the willies." Those are fighting words.
And it didn't stop there -- last year, Musk publicly replied to one of Sacha Baron Cohen's tweets criticizing the social media giant with three words of advice to his followers -- "#DeleteFacebook - It's lame." Ouch.
So Mr. Zuckerberg, if you're reading this, as isolating as it may feel to get singled out by a guy who used the profits from his flamethrower sales just to reinvent the subway, remember you're not alone -- the FTC hates Musk's Twitter shenanigans just as much as you do.
