In a shocking turn of events, Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX and Tesla, has filed a billion-dollar lawsuit against Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, for allegedly deleting Musk’s personal Facebook account.
According to the lawsuit, Musk’s account was deleted by Facebook without any prior warning or explanation. The lawsuit alleges that this action was taken as a result of Musk’s critical comments about Facebook and its role in spreading fake news and misinformation.
Musk has been an outspoken critic of Facebook, famously calling it a “lame” platform during an interview in 2018. He has also expressed concerns about the social media giant’s handling of user data and its impact on democracy and society as a whole.
In response to the lawsuit, Zuckerberg has denied any wrongdoing and called the lawsuit “frivolous and without merit.” He also pointed out that Musk’s account was not deleted by Facebook, but rather deactivated by Musk himself.
Despite Zuckerberg’s denials, Musk remains steadfast in his belief that Facebook is responsible for the deletion of his account.
In a statement to the media, he said, “Facebook has been trying to silence me for years, and this is just the latest attempt. I will not be silenced, and I will not allow Facebook to get away with this.”
The lawsuit is expected to be a lengthy and complex legal battle, with experts predicting that it could take years to resolve. In the meantime, Musk has vowed to continue speaking out against Facebook and its impact on society, regardless of the consequences.
Some social media users have reacted to the news with humor, with one user writing on Twitter, “Maybe Elon Musk should just launch his own social media platform. He’s got the rockets, after all!”
