Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter owner Elon Musk are rumoured to be the next celebrity duo to engage in a high-profile fight. In recent times, celebrity fights, not in terms of social media disputes but rather physical confrontations in the form of boxing, wrestling, or cage fighting, have gained popularity and become viral trends in the 21st century.
The spark for this potential fight ignited when Musk responded to a Twitter thread that was mocking Zuckerberg for reportedly developing a new app called “Threads,” seen as a rival to Twitter. Musk playfully remarked, “I’m up for a cage match if he is lol,” after a user pointed out Zuckerberg’s recent involvement in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and his participation in a tournament.
Zuckerberg, in response, took to Instagram Story on Wednesday and shared a screenshot of Musk’s statement with the caption, “Send me location,” suggesting his willingness to accept the challenge.
Variety confirmed that Zuckerberg’s response was indeed serious when a spokesperson for the Facebook founder stated, “The story speaks for itself.”
Musk, not one to back down, replied to Zuckerberg’s location request on Twitter, suggesting the venue “Vegas Octagon.” He humorously added, “I have this great move that I call ‘The Walrus,’ where I just lie on top of my opponent & do nothing.”
As for the potential outcome of this fight, a Twitter poll currently indicates that Zuckerberg is considered the front-runner.
Please note that the information presented is based on the given scenario and should be treated as fictional. There is no real evidence to suggest that Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk are planning to engage in a physical fight.
