Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Testifies At House Hearing

Mark Zuckerberg called out Elon Musk amid their ongoing feud on social media, Saturday. In doing so, he remarked on the site, Threads, that the Tesla billionaire "isn't serious" about their much-discussed cage fight match.

"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," Zuckerberg wrote. "Elon won't confirm a date, then says he needs surgery, and now asks to do a practice round in my backyard instead. If Elon ever gets serious about a real date and official event, he knows how to reach me. Otherwise, time to move on. I'm going to focus on competing with people who take the sport seriously."

Musk and Zuckerberg initially agreed to the idea of a fight back in June; however, in the time since, the two have gotten little done in terms of organizing the match. Instead, they've mostly bickered over social media. At one point, Musk claimed he might need surgery and mentioned getting an MRI.

On Sunday, Musk shared a screenshot of a text message exchange between himself and Zuckerberg. "I don't want to keep hyping something that will never happen, so you should either decide you're going to do this and do it soon, or we should move on," Zuckerberg wrote to Musk, who admitted that he hasn't been "practicing much."
