Musk was present at the CodeCon 2021 conference in Beverly Hills, California where he aimed a dig at the Amazon founder.

The world’s richest man advised Bezos to apply more efforts on getting into orbit rather than filing numerous lawsuits.

“I think I’ve expressed my thoughts on that front — I think he should put more of his energy into getting to orbit, [rather] than lawsuits,”

He ended the statement by telling Bezos “You cannot sue your way to the moon, no matter how good your lawyers are,”.

Amazon responded to Musk in a statement on Wednesday stating that SpaceX also has a record of suing the US government and protesting several government decisions.

Musk replied sharply on Twitter arguing that there is a difference between the intent of both companies’ lawsuits.

“SpaceX has sued to be *allowed* to compete, BO is suing to stop competition,”.

In addition, Amazon also filed protests to the Federal Communications Commission against SpaceX proposals for its Starlink satellite internet.
