Fauci, who surely has more pressing issues to face such as the deadly ongoing virus that continues to rage on, has not yet responded to Dr. Oz.
"It's past time Fauci faces the fact that he got COVID wrong. So, doctor to doctor – let's debate. This Doctor is in, are you?" he first wrote in a tweet back in January alongside an unusual edited video.
While Dr. Fauci has not responded to him, plenty of people online took it upon themselves to mock the cardiothoracic surgeon.
"I challenged Dr. Seuss to a game of "Who actually wrote The Cat in the Hat," and still haven't heard a thing from him," wrote Ed Solomon.
"I challenged Muhammad Ali to a boxing match, and … crickets," tweeted James Gleick.
Another user wrote, "I challenged Brad Pitt to a handsome contest and still haven’t heard a thing from him."
Room Rater wrote: "Maybe that’s because he has real doctor things to do?"
"He’s just not that into you," joked comedian Titus.
