(SNews) – Elon Musk humiliated Facebook (Meta) CEO Mark Zuckerberg while defending Twitter’s commitment to its free speech agenda.

Musk fired back after Zuckerberg took to Twitter to mock him.

The two social media bosses have been clashing recently over their opposing visions for their platforms.

Things came to a head when Zuckerberg’s Meta launched a censored clone of Twitter last week called “Threads.”

Meta appears to be trying to undercut Twitter with the launch of Threads as a potential alternative.

However, initial impressions appear to be that Threads has been designed to harvest the data of its users, most of which are boosted leftists who want more censorship.

Musk is already talking about possible legal action, saying “competition is fine” but “cheating” is not.

His attorney accused Zuckerberg’s people of misappropriation of trade secrets and intellectual property using knowledge acquired from former Twitter employees.

The lawyer sent Zuckerberg a cease and desist letter.

Meanwhile, although Threads allegedly got millions of signups, they’re already censoring people on the right with no built-in way for them to appeal.

The app is also collecting disturbing levels of data from users, including data on your health, purchases, financial info, location, contact info, search history, and browsing history.

Threads is tracking its users’ every move, similar to other Meta apps.

Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey noticed this and shared the Threads App Privacy section in a tweet.

Musk made the point on Sunday that part of the protection of free speech includes protecting people’s ability to have an anonymous account.

He said that he would continue to protect that right, to protect people from being targeted for their speech.

A user noted the big difference between Meta’s Zuckerberg and Musk.

Musk “protects free speech” while Zuckerberg “protects brand speech,” they noted.

The same Twitter user shared a screenshot of the fast food restaurant chain Wendy’s tweeting that Zuckerberg should also steal Musk’s ideas for space travel.

Zuckerberg responded to the post with a laughing emoji.

Musk humiliated Zuckerberg with a simply four-word comeback that left Twitter users wondering if it was the comment was even real.

“Zuck is a cuck,” Musk declared.
