Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, has escalated his feud with Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta Platforms (formerly Facebook). In a series of tweets on May 9, Musk criticized Zuckerberg's plans to build a metaverse, calling it a "dystopian future" and a "creepy Metaverse."

Musk also accused Zuckerberg of copying his ideas, saying the metaverse is "just a rebranded version of what we've been building for years at Tesla." He added that the metaverse will "never be as good as reality."

Zuckerberg has not yet responded to Musk's tweets. However, he has previously defended his plans for the metaverse, saying it will be a "positive" force for the world.

The feud between Musk and Zuckerberg is the latest example of the growing rivalry between the two tech giants. Musk has been a vocal critic of Facebook in the past, and he has accused the company of censorship and being a monopoly.

The metaverse is a virtual world being developed by several tech companies, including Meta Platforms, Microsoft, and Google. The metaverse is still in its early stages, but it is expected to impact how we live and work significantly.

Whether Musk's criticism of the metaverse will impact its development remains to be seen. However, his tweets have certainly generated much discussion about this technology's future.
