Elon Musk says he’ll show up in a Tesla to Mark Zuckerberg’s doorstep to fight as trash talk about billionaires continues

Elon Musk said he plans to show up on Mark Zuckerberg’s doorstep ready for a fight Monday night after the Meta CEO told him it was time to stop their months of bullshit about a planned fight.

Musk, owner of X formerly known as Twitter, said he will direct a self-driving Tesla car to drive him to Zuckerberg’s home in Palo Alto, where he will propose a fight.

“For the Tesla FSD test drive tonight in Palo Alto, I will ask which car I am going to drive to @finkd‘s house”, he tweeted on Monday. “…If we’re lucky and Zuck mein 👅 actually opens the door, the fight will start!”

Musk – who also owns electric car maker Telsa – added that he will be broadcasting the “adventure” in real-time on X.

However, Zuckerberg will not be home Monday night as he is currently traveling, his spokesman said said The Verge.

“Also, Mark takes this sport seriously and will not fight anyone who happens to show up at his house,” added spox Iska Saric.

A day earlier, Zuckerberg said it was finally time to break the back-and-forth, but there was no action because he said Musk hadn’t set a date for the planned cage fight.

“I think we can all agree that Elon is not serious and it’s time to move on,” said the Facebook founder wrote threads on his new X-Alternative platform Sunday.

Zuckerberg, 39, said UFC President Dana White offered to make the game a “legitimate competition” to raise money for charity, but accused Musk of making excuses like needing surgery.

“If Elon is ever serious about a real date and an official event, he knows how to reach me,” he wrote. “Otherwise it’s time to move on. I will focus on competing with people who take the sport seriously.”

The ongoing uproar between the social media giants has been reflected in face-to-face conversations between the men, in addition to their public arguments.

Musk, 52, recently leaked an alleged text exchange between him and Zuckerberg.

In the lyrics, Zuckerberg reportedly said he didn’t want to continue playing up something that would never happen and advised Musk to either commit to a game date or not.

Musk first challenged Zuckerberg to a cage fight in June. Zuckerberg, who trains ju-jitsu, was quick to accept the challenge, but the only fights since then have been via social media taunts.
