Tesla CEO Elon Musk called Amazon’s boss Jeff Bezos a copycat as Amazon has signed to pay $1 billion to buy self-driving startup Zoox Inc. Zoox’s vehicles are designed for ride-hailing, unlike Tesla’s, which are designed to go directly to customers.
Well, it’s not the first time that Musk tweeted on Bezos. Earlier this month, Musk also tweeted in which he said: “time to break up Amazon”.
He also called Bezos, who runs rocket-launch startup Blue Origin LLC, a copy cat in April 2019 after hearing of plans for a satellite-based internet service to rival his own company.
The Financial Times and Amazon itself confirmed that the company acquires self-driving technology startup company Zoox for over $1.2 billion.
The Tesla CEO tweeted “@JeffBezos is a copy haha”. Musk didn’t use the word cat but instead, he used a cat icon. Bezos has never replied back to Musk on tweets against him.
In the month of April, Zoox settled a lawsuit with Tesla in which Tesla filed a suit accusing four Zoox employees of taking information including shipping, transportation, receiving and warehouse procedures.
