Mark Zuckerberg had a savage clap back for Elon Musk while discussing their upcoming cage fight.
Over the weekend, the two billionaire tech heads once again began ramping up the hype for their pending battle on their respective social media platforms.
Musk revealed his preparations for the fight ahead, writing: “Am lifting weights throughout the day, preparing for the fight. Don’t have time to work out, so I just bring them to work.”
Zuckerberg then screen shot the post and wondered if the Tesla founder would actually commit to a date.
“I suggested Aug 26 when he first challenged, but he hasn’t confirmed. Not holding my breath,” he said.
Yikes. The smack-talking continues.
The Meta CEO added he loves the sport of ju-jitsu and 'will continue competing with people who train no matter what happens here'.
The internet was sent into a frenzy over the latest update in the cage match saga.
One Twitter user wrote: “What Elon gonna do when Zuckerberg sheds his skin.”
Another said: “Mark said he want all the smoke as soon as possible. Oh Elon you’re bones!!!!!”
A third commented: “Elon Musk is a coward who loves talking big.”
While another shared: “With all due respect, f**k you both.”
Musk also recently revealed that the fight would be live-streamed via X so that people across the globe could tune in.
He added that all the proceeds would go to veterans.
However, Zuckerberg chimed in, poking fun at the South African’s company.
He wrote on his platform Threads: “Shouldn’t we use a more reliable platform that can actually raise money for charity?”
Offfft. Shots fired.
The billionaire feud was sparked when Musk bought Twitter, and news arose of Zuckerberg's since-launched rival app Threads.
A Twitter user warned Musk they'd heard Zuckerberg 'does the ju jitsu now' and so he 'better be careful'.
To which the business magnate responded: "I'm up for a cage match if he is lol."
But it didn’t take long for Zuckerberg to take him up on the offer, with the Meta boss taking to Instagram to respond: "Send Me Location."
And that was enough to get Musk fired up, as he agreed to the cage match while also responding with another below-the-belt comment.
"I propose a literal d**k measuring contest,” Musk wrote.
I mean, call a spade a spade?
