Elon Musk Mocks Rival Jeff Bezos Over Space Companies

  • Musk said that the Amazon CEO doesn’t work hard and should spend less time in the hot tub

Elon Musk was named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year 2021 and the Tesla CEO took the moment to aim a dig at rival Jeff Bezos.

Elon Musk

The world’s richest man according to Bloomberg, claimed that Bezos doesn’t work as hard as him and should spend ‘less time in the hot tub’.

He did however offer some faint praise for the Amazon founder, saying that he has ‘reasonably good engineering aptitude’.

The praise comes despite Blue Origin falling behind his own space company SpaceX in the space race.

The rivalry of SpaceX’s Elon Musk and Blue Origin’s Jeff Bezos tracks back as far as 2004 when the two met for a dinner.

The pair met to discuss their shared interest in the space industry, and Musk claims that Bezos did not want to hear what he had to say.

According to the Washington Post’s Christian Davenport in his book ‘The Space Barons’, Elon Musk alleges:

‘I actually did my best to give good advice, which he largely ignored,’

Since then, it has been a frequent war of words and lawsuits between the two, with the latest being Blue Origin suing NASA for awarding SpaceX a billion-dollar contract.

Jeff Bezos, 57 is yet to respond to the latest remarks of his rival but the spat is expected to linger on.
