Elon Musk’s former singer and girlfriend Grimes has questioned Meta founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s ability to make his $10 billion Metaverse dream a success, calling him “unqualified.”
The Canadian singer, born Claire Boucher, attacked Zuckerberg in a tweet, saying that if Zuckerberg oversees the metaverse, “it’s dead.”
“People who care about art and culture are building something else. Also that’s bad art,” she mentioned, after Zuckerberg recently faced harsh criticism for his poorly designed metaverse avatar.
Grimes said that “the quality of this image alone speaks to how unqualified he is to build alternate reality, literally any indie game looks better”.
“Aesthetics aside, they have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are ethically unfit to run something so powerful and should not have the power they have now,” she posted.
Last week, Zuckerberg posted a picture of his digital avatar standing in front of the Eiffel Tower.
However, the social media world didn’t like his rather basic image and bombarded him with memes.
“I know the picture I posted earlier this week was very basic — it was done very quickly to celebrate a launch. The graphics in Horizon are capable of much more — even on headsets — and Horizon is getting better too soon,” he had said.
Musk and Grimes recently revealed that they welcomed a second child, a daughter named Exa Dark Siderl Musk, via surrogate in December.
The on-again, off-again couple welcomed their first child, X – A-12 (pronounced “X AI Archangel” and nicknamed “X”), in May 2020.
Y is Grimes’ second child and Musk’s eighth. His first child, son Nevada Alexander with ex-wife Justine Wilson, died at 10 weeks of sudden infant death syndrome (Sids) in 2002.
