There are some of us who are very capable at both. This is one of the many false dichotomies continuously perpetrated by those who choose not to learn to read notation. Its really another "my-ignorance-is-just-as-valid-as-your-knowledge" false assertion which is one hallmark of social media.

A person who is unable to play by ear is no more pathetic than a person who is unable to read music.

Its not either you can read or you can play by ear. You can actually do both.
