Elon Musk Memes Bill Gates, MrBeast Reacts

Elon Musk is feuding with a fellow billionaire yet again. This time it is not Jeff Bezos, but Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, who fell victim to Musk’s comical banter.

Leaked screenshots of a text conversation between the two business magnates show Musk asking Gates if he still has a half a billion-dollar short position against Tesla stock. Gates responds to Musk’s text, saying that he has not closed it out and that he would like to discuss “philanthropy possibilities.” Musk was not having it, though, and told Gates to beat it. For those who are unaware, shorting is an investment practice that aims at making a profit when a stock’s price falls, so it is reasonable to expect a negative reaction from Musk in this situation.

A Twitter user posted the screenshots and asked if they were real, tagging Musk in the tweet. He replied and confirmed that they are, in fact, real but were not leaked by him.
