Elon Musk stooped low Sunday as he challenged Mark Zuckerberg to a bizarre “d—” measuring contest after the launch of Threads.
The 52-year-old owner of Twitter made a proposition online with an emoji of a ruler hours after calling the Facebook co-founder a “cuck.”
The bitterness between the two billionaires has intensified since Zuckerberg launched Threads alongside Meta, which has been known to be the “Twitter killer.”
Musk’s latest posts were the final straw for some users on the platform who have considered ditching the social media platform for the competitor.
“This is getting out of hand,” one person wrote.
Others called out Musk’s “middle school behavior” and branded his penis-comparing diatribe “embarrassing” and “corny.”
The Tesla CEO recently launched a legal threat against Meta, which owns Facebook. Instagram, and Threads.
Musk’s lawyer, Alex Spiro, fired a letter off to Zuckerberg last Wednesday accusing Meta of engaging in ““systematic, willful and unlawful misappropriation of Twitter’s trade secrets and other intellectual property,” which a company spokesperson denied.
Spiro went as far as calling Threads a “copycat” of Twitter.
The platform has grown to more than 100 million users in less than five days, making it the fastest-growing online platform in history.
The two even have gone far as a potential cage match with the UFC involved as well. There has been no update on whether the match will continue as planned or if there will be any legal action against Meta.
