Elon Musk is no stranger to wacky Tweets. The man who rules our space, land, and digital sphere has said some stupid things on his Twitter account. Here are the top five dumbest things that the world’s richest man has said.
“The coronavirus pandemic is dumb”
While the world was fighting against COVID, a tweet posted by the world’s most influential personality showed us his insensitivity. The world’s richest man Elon Musk, wrote, “The coronavirus panic is dumb.” When thousands of people around the world were suffering, the Tesla owner made fun of those who weren’t lucky enough to have his privilege. People around the world were upset by his tweet. Someone commented, “Do you know what it is like to struggle to breathe.”
“The earth is facing a population collapse”
There are 7.9 billion people on our planet, but Musk believes that we’re on the brink of a population collapse. Fun fact, Elon is the father of 8 children. Taking to Twitter, Musk wrote, “I’m trying to set a good example! Population collapse is a much bigger problem than people realize, and that’s just for Earth. Mars has a great need for people, seeing as the population is currently zero. Humans are the custodians of other life on Earth. Let us bring life to Mars!”
“Am considering taking Tesla private at $420. Funding secured”
After a string of Tweets, an influential personality tweeted, “Shareholders could either sell at 420 or hold shares & go private.” In another tweet, Musk said, “Am considering taking Tesla private at $420. Funding secured.” Because of this tweet, a fine worth $20 million was charged to him by a legal suit for creating chaos in the market, after which he had to resign from his chairman position.
The man behind Tesla can’t keep his hands off his keyboard! Musk wrote a very controversial tweet when the news of his trans daughter applying for a name change broke the internet. He said, “Pronouns suck.” Musk’s ex-wife replied, “I cannot support hate.”
Back in 2018, a group of kids in Thailand were trapped in a cave for about 17 days after a storm caused water levels to rise too high. Divers were called to bring the children out one by one. Musk offered to donate and promised to help the kids, but he turned it down. Elon wrote, “You know what, don’t bother showing the video. We will make one of the mini-sub/pods going all the way to Cave 5, no problemo. Sorry pedo guy, you really did ask for it.” Later, Musk deleted this tweet, but once something is on the internet, it can never be deleted.
