Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has spent billions on the company’s metaverse project. Many have criticised the CEO’s project, now including musician and Elon Musk ex Grimes.
In a recent interview, Grimes claimed Mark Zuckerberg isn’t qualified to run the metaverse right now. But why is Zuckerberg the wrong choice to lead the virtual world?
Grimes rants about Mark Zuckerberg
On Twitter, Grimes decided to rant about Mark Zuckerberg, claiming that the incident with his ugly metaverse selfie is proof that the Meta CEO is unqualified. Grimes also went out of her way to trash Zuckerberg’s “improved” metaverse avatar, then claiming that the platform will die with him in charge.
“If zuck “oversees the Metaverse” it is dead and people who care about art and culture are building something else,” claimed Grimes on Twitter. “Also this is bad art. The quality of this image alone speaks to how wildly under qualified he is to build alternate reality, literally every indie game looks better.”
Since Grimes is an avid gamer and cares about technology, it shouldn’t be too big a surprise to see her rant like this. Then again, Grimes isn’t involved with the workings of the metaverse so fans don’t have to take her complaints to heart.
Grimes and the metaverse
No matter how you feel about Elon Musk’s ex, it seems that Grimes has some stake in the metaverse since she just launched a series of NFTs. Since these items are planned to be a big part of the metaverse going forward, it’s clear that the musician wants someone competent to steer the metaverse ship.
With other countries starting their own version of the metaverse platform, it will be interesting to see which one ends up being the best. It doesn’t matter who wins in the end since Grimes will probably make a ton of money, already making $5.8 million from NFTs.
