Elon Musk blasted for saying 'pronouns suck', Angry Internet calls him a transphobic narcissistic kid
Evidently, it is not a good day to be Elon Musk. The CEO of SpaceX shared some very unwelcome opinions on Twitter and literally no one is having any of it. First, the tech CEO and billionaire shared a problematic tweet against the government's stimulus package welcoming the wrath of not only his followers but also Senator Bernie Sanders who called him a "hypocrite". Following the flak he received there, he tweeted "Twitter sucks", which is not the first time.
And now, he has tweeted "Pronouns suck". What brought this on can't be said, and no one knows, especially since he is so erratic on the microblogging site. Hey, his followers said it first: "Who else cringes more and more often every time they see Elon tweet lately?" The rest of Twitter is also having a field day.
"you/you are so stupid," tweeted one in response. "Pretty disgusting to see from you. What's so hard about calling someone a pronoun? It literally does absolutely nothing to you to call them it and it's what they like to be referred to as so why not just do it? I genuinely don't understand why you people don't like them," added another.
Musk is also being deemed a narcissist who is seeking attention via his tweets. "You're a fake patriot from a racist country. Why should we trust you self-indulgent posts, eh? Kiddo? It's always about you, you insufferable a**hole." Another wrote, "[Elon, age 5, tipping over a glass of water so someone will look at him]." Some tweets responding to Musk really went on the offensive. "You literally could be doing anything else with your life. I’ll bet the bugs that eat your corpse will spit out your rotting flesh because it’s too bitter."
That is not all. His own partner Grimes called him out in a now-deleted tweet."I love you but please turn off ur phone or give me a dall [sic]," she wrote on her Twitter. "I cannot support hate. Please stop this. I know this isn’t your heart."
Now is Elon a transphobic? Twitter certainly seems to think so. "elon musk really tweeted 'pronouns suck' and then expected to be praised as a trans saviour."
"breaking news: elon musk attempts transphobia, fails miserably at it like everything else he's ever tried to do," tweeted another.
He is also being compared to author JK Rowling who has also tweeted transphobic content in the past and then deleted it off her social media. "Elon Musk and JK Rowling sittin' in a tree Hatin' on trans n sayin' pay attention to ME ME ME! First comes tweets Then comes deletes Then comes crazy In a baby carriage! Wah wah! "I'm the victim"," a user expertly pointed out.
