Tesla CEO Elon Musk has slammed Dogecoin co-creator Jackson Palmer after the latter alleged that the tech billionaire does not understand basic coding. Musk also hit back at the software programmer and challenged him to share his coding skills for all the world to see and judge.

Palmer, the Australian software programmer and the co-creator of the world's first-ever dog-themed meme coin has always been vocal about his feelings toward Musk. Last year, he called the tech billionaire a "self-absorbed grifter" and very recently in an interview doubled down on his perspective of the tech billionaire.

He also revealed in the interview that a few years ago he had a "funny" experience with Musk and shared that the tech billionaire did not "understand coding as well as he made out." The Australian software programmer also claimed the Tesla CEO did not know how to run the Python script.

Musk previously let those allegations pass without saying anything, but, this time around, he did not mince words. "You falsely claimed ur lame snippet of Python gets rid of bots. Ok buddy, then share it with the world," the billionaire said, reacting to a tweet posted by Crickey, the outlet that interviewed Palmer.

"My kids write better code when they were 12 than the nonsense script Jackson sent me. Like I said, if it’s so great, he should share it with the world and make everyone’s experience with Twitter better. If he does, you will see what I mean. Jackson Palmer is a tool," Musk said in a follow-up tweet.

As if not through with what he had to say, the Tesla CEO said, "And Palmer always forgets to mention that he never wrote a single line of Dogecoin code." Unlike Dogecoin co-creator Billy Markus who seemed to agree with Musk about many things as seen on Twitter, Palmer admitted that his "opinion on him and all billionaires is that I don’t care much for them."

Palmer in that interview with Crickey called Musk "a grifter" and claimed that the tech billionaire "sells a vision in hopes that he can one day deliver what he’s promising, but he doesn’t know that. He’s just really good at pretending he knows. That’s very evident with the Tesla full-self-driving promise."

DOGE was trading up 0.11 percent at $0.08584 with a 24-hour volume of $644,245,684 as of 2:56 a.m. ET on Wednesday based on the data from CoinMarketCap.
