Zuckerberg explained in an Aug. 13 Threads post that Musk isn’t “serious” about a real fight because Musk has dragged on giving any potential dates for the bout.
“I think we can all agree Elon isn’t serious and it’s time to move on.” Zuckerberg added:
“Elon won’t confirm a date, then says he needs surgery, and now asks to do a practice round in my backyard instead.”
