After he was toppled to make him the richest person in the world, Elon Musk took a dig at Jeff Bezos.

Forbes reports that the Tesla CEO and SpaceX CEO was the third person to reach $200 billion in global wealth on Monday.

Musk responded by saying he would send Bezos reminders of their position on Forbes' billionaires list.

Musk wrote to Forbes that he was sending a huge statue of the number '2' and a silver medal to Jeffrey B.

Bezos was the first person to surpass the $200 billion mark when he achieved it last August. Bernard Arnault (CEO of French luxury conglomerate LVMH MOT Hennessy – Louis Vuitton), briefly reached that milestone more recently.

Musk's attack on Bezos is the latest in a long-running rivalry between the two. Blue Origin, Bezos’ rocket company, protested NASA awarding a $2.9B contract to SpaceX to land humans in the moon. Musk responded to the protest via Twitter: "Can't get (to orbit) lol."

Kuiper, an Amazon subsidiary, filed a protest letter to the FCC last month over SpaceX's plans for expanding its Starlink satellite network. Musk responded by tweeting that Bezos "retired to pursue full-time employment filing lawsuits against SpaceX."
