Elon Musk just deleted SpaceX’s and Tesla’s Facebook pages. 

At first we thought the Instagram-obsessed billionaire was joking or, as someone would say, trolling. But Musk got himself involved in the #DeleteFacebook movement, in the wake of a data privacy issue involving Cambridge Analytica, and actually followed through.

How does Zuck feel about all of this? We reached out to Facebook for comment.
