Elon Musk has long been against Facebook, going as far as deleting his companies pages from the popular social media site back in 2018. One of his main problems, at least the one that he talks about the most, is the use of AI on the Facebook platform. Per Musk, AI is “biggest risk we face as a civilization” and Facebook uses it for everything.

Sacha Baron Cohen recently slammed Facebook, specifically Mark Zuckerburg in a post that compared Zuckerburg, and his haircut, to Julius Caesar and a dictator. Baron Cohen’s real issue is the refusal to remove hate speech from posts on Facebook. “This is about giving people, including some of the most reprehensible people on earth, the biggest platform in history to reach a third of the planet. Freedom of speech is not freedom of reach.” Elon Musk replied to this tweet with “#DeleteFacebook It’s lame.”
