Elon Musk Responds to Parody Account's Tweet About "Lizard Boy"

In the midst of legal disputes between Elon Musk and Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, a tweet from Elon Musk's parody account has caught the attention of the internet. The spoof account, known as Elon Musk (Parody) on Twitter, has been generating significant buzz lately.

Recently, Mr. Musk addressed a post shared by his parody account. This tweet came just a day after Meta introduced Threads, a new Instagram app. The tweet humorously stated, "I spent $44 billion for this app and now Lizard boy just decided to hit copy and paste. It's personal now. See you in the cage, Zuck [Mark Zuckerberg]."

Although the tweet was initially mistaken as being from Elon Musk himself, the parody account gained over 30 million views and approximately 60,000 retweets. In response, Elon Musk clarified, "So many people think this account is me."

When popular YouTuber MrBeast asked, "It's not?" Elon Musk simply responded with a straightforward "nope." MrBeast made headlines for becoming the first person to reach 1 million followers on Threads, achieving this milestone on July 6 at 2:42 p.m. BST / 9:42 a.m. EST, as confirmed by Guinness World Records.

Following Elon Musk's response, the parody account shared a screenshot of the tweets and admitted, "Sometimes I forget to switch accounts when I post."

Earlier, Elon Musk's Parody account playfully mentioned, "I should just copy and paste Instagram and see how Lizard boy feels then. I mean, I could do it?"

Meanwhile, Threads faced legal threats, with allegations of violating Twitter's intellectual property rights. Elon Musk's lawyer, Alex Spiro, sent a letter to Mark Zuckerberg, accusing Meta of "unlawful misappropriation of Twitter's trade secrets and other intellectual property." The letter also claimed that Meta had hired numerous former Twitter employees who still had access to Twitter's confidential information. Alex Spiro emphasized that Twitter intended to strictly enforce its intellectual property rights.

In response to these claims, Meta refuted the allegations, stating that the Threads engineering team does not include any former Twitter employees.
