Bryan Johnson, the youth-obsessed tech mogul who's swapped blood with his teenage son as he spends millions to turn back the clock on his aging body, has now picked a fight with multi-hyphenated billionaire Elon Musk.

In a tweet, the 46-year-old accused Musk of exploiting his employees.

"The difference between Elon and me: I’ll nourish you and drink your blood; he’ll fire you and leave you to die," he wrote, referring to other users accusing him of looking like a "vampire."

Johnson was commenting on a screenshot in which another user suggested that Johnson "looked way better before he started spending $2 million/year on his body."

At the time, Musk commented with a 100 percent emoji, suggesting he agreed that Johnson looked better before he started zapping his genitals and undergoing an incredibly strict diet and regimen of eccentric medical treatments.

Johnson took the potshot in strides, joking that "former Bryan didn't get invited to vampire cosplay as himself."

Is Musk really justified in calling out the pale-skinned and lean-bodied entrepreneur — or is he the pot calling the kettle black? After all, the mercurial CEO has long been suspected of getting cosmetic work done himself.

Last year, Musk tweeted that "plastic surgery (done right) is awesome. Technology ftw."

Then there's the miraculous return of his once-receding hairline, which has long been hotly debated among tabloids.

In his quest to turn back the clock on his body, Johnson has been the subject of several high-profile writeups as of late, including a piece in Bloomberg by Elon Musk biographer Ashlee Vance. The entrepreneur is also trying to get a series of anti-aging products off the ground under a brand called Project Blueprint, which includes pricy olive oil and nut mixes.

While the jabs the two wealthy tech moguls are exchanging are pretty harmless, both personalities have more in common than one might think. For one, they're both obsessed with aging.

But while Johnson is clearly mortified of eventually succumbing to old age, Musk appears to be more in tune with the eventual demise of his own body.

"I think it is important for us to die because most of the times, people don't change their mind, they just die," he said at at a 2021 event hosted by the Wall Street Journal after calling for an "age limit" for running for political office.

At the time, Musk accused US president Joe Biden of simply being too old to rule the country.

"If they live forever, then we might become a very ossified society where new ideas cannot succeed," he added at the time.

Given his micromanaging tendencies and refusal to cede control over his empire, however, Musk has arguably yet to make good on that promise.

But whether ancient "vampire" tech moguls with the bodies of teenagers will rule the societies of tomorrow — or billionaires with hair transplants that "leave you to die" — remains to be seen.
