Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, and Mark Zuckerberg, creator of Meta, appear to continue their feud. Musk apparently remarked on Wednesday that Facebook is deceiving the public and that this is why they won’t open source their algorithm.

Reacting to the news that Mark Zuckerberg said that Facebook has independent fact-checkers and is open to all perspectives, and doesn’t interfere in elections, Musk on his social media account X, formerly known as Twitter, stated that, “Facebook is manipulating the public almost everywhere on Earth. That is why they won’t open-source their algorithm.”

Following Zuckerberg’s dissatisfaction at Musk’s failure to confirm a date for their billion-dollar showdown, Tesla CEO Elon Musk stated that Zuckerberg’s decision not to battle Elon Musk appears to have prompted the latter to label the CEO of Meta a “escape artist.”

Taking to X, Musk wrote, “I am whatever the opposite of an escape artist is.” In a post on Threads, he said that he was going to “focus on competing with people who take the sport seriously”.

“I think we can all agree Elon isn’t serious and it’s time to move on. I offered a real date. Dana White offered to make this a legit competition for charity. Elon won’t confirm a date, then says he needs surgery, and now asks to do a practice round in my backyard instead,” he said in the post.
