Meanwhile, the Tesla CEO has constantly been conversing with Twitter over closing the billionaire's stalled $44 billion deal to buy one of the world's most famous social media platforms, reports WSJ. However, earlier on Monday, Parler confirmed through a press release about Kanye officially buying the right-wing platform.

Another user tweeted, "Displaying his ignorance on a near-daily basis, Musk may want to stick to subjects he knows something about."
