- There’s no love lost between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg.
- The CEOs have been feuding since 2016, when a SpaceX explosion destroyed a Facebook satellite.
- Since then, they’ve butted heads repeatedly. Now they’re threatening to face off in a cage match.
For over six years, two of techs biggest names — Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg — have been caught up in a feud, clashing over topics like artificial intelligence and rockets.
The two men have been griping about each other behind closed doors for years, according to The Wall Street Journal. But the tech moguls haven’t exactly kept their rivalry a secret from the public, either.
