The Build-Up To The Whole Issue

As part of his daily routine, Musk was answering his tweets on Friday morning when he received one peculiar tweet from Brian Acton, Co-founder of WhatsApp. The tweet from Acton contained the hashtag #deletefacebook, to which Musk replied by stating “What’s Facebook?”


What Prompted Musk To Delete the Pages?

In the midst of all this, another Twitter user commented by stating that Musk should delete the company Facebook page. Elon Musk responded by saying that he had no Idea that there was a Facebook page of Tesla or SpaceX and he would duly bring them down.

He was challenged by the twitter user that if he was “The Man”, he would delta the page which Musk duly did later onwards.


What Happened Next?

After the Tesla page was brought down, someone even showed Musk a screenshot of the SpaceX page to which he replied by saying that the page looked lame anyway. The SpaceX page vanished afterward. The Facebook Page of Tesla owned Solar City has vanished as well.


What Does This Mean For Facebook?

Facebook has endured somewhat of a difficult week as it was embroiled in a controversy surrounding the apparent user data theft by Cambridge Analytica. Over 50 million user’s data were stolen and people have continued to show backlash to the entire issue. The Musk issue just adds more fuel to Facebook’s already raging fire.
