Elon Musk wants you to delete Facebook. Why? Because it’s “lame,” apparently. The CEO made the unexpected revelation on Twitter over the weekend, penned in response to actor Sacha Baron Cohen’s vocal critique of the social media platform.

Cohen spoke out against Facebook in November 2019 at the Anti-Defamation League where he labeled Mark Zuckerberg’s company the “greatest propaganda machine in history.” Last week, he tweeted a similar message, demanding Facebook be regulated by governments.

Musk then responded to Cohen with a call-out to his own followers: “#DeleteFacebook It’s lame.” Take a look at the exchange below.
