    How good do you think CEO Mark Zuckerberg is at his job? Let us forget Facebook and come to his pet project, Metaverse. Zuckerberg has bet the future of his group on it. However, there are quite a few doubters and Elon Musk's ex-girlfriend and the mother of his child, Grimes, has cast a stone in his direction. Canadian singer-songwriter and record producer Grimes thinks that Zuckerberg is under-qualified to run the Metaverse. Grimes expressed her disgust in her Twitter account by saying that if Zuckerberg oversees the Metaverse, it is dead as he is under qualified to build an alternate reality.

    Grimes, who formerly dated Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, even criticised the Facebook founder's metaverse avatar. "If zuck “oversees the Metaverse” it is dead and people who care about art and culture are building something else. 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."

    It can be known that Zuckerberg had posted the image Grimes was referring to on Facebook last week, however, as it did not get a good response, a few days later, he shared another avatar. Zuckerberg clarified by saying that the photo he shared earlier was pretty basic and was taken very quickly to celebrate the launch. The graphics in Horizon are capable of much more, he added.

    "Major updates to Horizon and avatar graphics coming soon. I'll share more at Connect. Also, I know the photo I posted earlier this week was pretty basic -- it was taken very quickly to celebrate a launch. The graphics in Horizon are capable of much more -- even on headsets -- and Horizon is improving very quickly," Zuckerberg wrote on Facebook.

    Earlier on August 16, he posted on Facebook, "We're launching Horizon Worlds in France and Spain today! Looking forward to seeing people explore and build immersive worlds, and to bringing this to more countries soon."

    Zuckerberg directed a companywide shift toward the metaverse last year- 2021, going as far as to rebrand Facebook's corporate name to Meta Platforms, as the embattled social media platform contends with a series of scandals over its business practices and internal policies, according to a report by ANI.
