Looks like Grimes would need some convincing if Mark Zuckerberg were ever to lead the Metaverse.
The 34-year-old singer expressed her disdain at the tech mogul’s plans to expand the company, formerly known as Facebook, into a metaverse pioneer.
In fact, she thinks he is “very underqualified” to pilot the ship.
The hitmaker “Oblivion,” who previously dated billionaire Elon Musk, took to Twitter Friday and slammed the Facebook founder’s Metaverse avatar.
“When Zuck ‘oversees the Metaverse’ it’s dead and people who care about art and culture are building something else. This is also bad art.” the singer tweetedwhose real name is Claire Boucher.
“The quality of this image alone shows how vastly underqualified he is at building alternate reality. Literally any indie game looks better.”
Last week, Zuckerberg posted an image of his Metaverse avatar on Facebook, but the response was far from what he had hoped.
A few days later, he shared another version of the avatar.
“I know the photo I posted earlier this week was pretty simple — it was taken really quickly to celebrate a launch,” he wrote. “The graphics in Horizon can do a lot more – even on headsets – and Horizon is improving very quickly.”
Zuckerberg directed a company-wide shift to the metaverse last fall — even going as far as changing Facebook’s company name to Meta — as the embattled social media platform faces a string of scandals over its business practices and internal policies.
