Entrepreneur Elon Musk and Sen. Elizabeth Warren have had their beefs with each other from time to time. Musk is considered to be one of the most provocative yet impactful social media users. The Tesla CEO has been master-manipulator of causing lasting changes through his tweets on his stock value and even cryptocurrencies.

Musk has been christened TIME’s Person of the Year title. However, Warren thinks it’s completely wrong to award him with any sort of honorifics. If it were up to her, a better suited recognition for the SpaceX visionary would be “Freeloader of the Year.”

Warren was the first one to land a shot on Musk. She called him out and accused him of evading the corporate taxes that he should be paying. She took to Twitter and told her sent out to her followers:

Let’s change the rigged tax code so The Person of the Year will actually pay taxes and stop freeloading off everyone else.

Musk’s way of getting back at Warren was quite brutal. He claimed that his accusations on her was just someone yelling at others for no reason. He replied to her tweet by saying:

You remind me of when I was a kid and my friend’s angry Mom would just randomly yell at everyone for no reason.

Elon Musk even went as far as to accuse Warren of projecting her own insecurities about taxes. However, he’s not the only one who has been targeted by the Senator. She has went after Jeff Bezos, who she also accused of evading taxes.
