Elon Musk, the famous tech billionaire and head of Twitter (now called X), is back in the news with an eye-catching offer. He’s willing to give Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg a whopping $1 billion if he agrees to change the name of Facebook.
Just a few days ago, Musk, who is currently the richest person on Earth, made a similar offer to the Wikipedia owners. He asked them to rename the platform to ‘Dickipedia,’ with the condition that the new name must stick for at least a year.
Musk Offers Mark $1 Billion to change Facebook Name
Now, Musk has turned his attention to the social media giant Facebook, which is owned by Meta. He’s ready to hand over $1 billion to Mark Zuckerberg if he’s willing to change the platform’s name to ‘Faceboob.’
This unusual move was triggered after a parody account called ‘The Babylon Bee’ shared Musk’s offer on Twitter. “Elon Musk Offers Mark Zuckerberg $1 Billion If He Changes Name Of Facebook To ‘Faceboob'” the account wrote.
In his typical witty style, Musk acknowledged the idea and even claimed that a name change would be a significant improvement for the social media giant. He tweeted, “It would be a much better name!”
This statement from Musk is the latest in a series of playful exchanges between the two tech giants, X and Meta.
This playful banter all started with a challenge between Musk and Zuckerberg for a cage fight, which created a buzz on the internet earlier this year. Unfortunately, the fight never happened, and Zuckerberg believed that Musk wasn’t serious about the challenge, much to the disappointment of fans.
The billionaire magnate also disclosed that Italy had expressed willingness to host their duel at the historic Coliseum. Musk revealed, “Italy actually offered us the use of the Coliseum.”
He added, “I thought it was a great opportunity, but I also wanted to maintain the Coliseum’s historical significance. We didn’t want it to be plastered with excessive branding like NASCAR. However, Zuckerberg ultimately declined.”
