Elon Musk surely knows how to make headlines and keep himself trending. A few days ago, he finalized a deal to purchase Twitter for $44 billion and since then has continuously been on top of every news site. But his recent bizarre tweet has blown people’s minds, with many worrying about his safety.

The Tesla CEO tweeted: “If I die under mysterious circumstances, it’s been nice knowin ya.” The tweet from the 50-year-old came shortly before he posted what seemed like a “communication” that in part read: “The internet terminals of Elon Musk’s satellite company were delivered to the militants of the Nazi Azov Battalion and the Ukrainian Marines in Mariupol by military helicopters.” He captioned the post, “The word ‘Nazi’ doesn’t mean what he seems to think it does.”

The "communication" also added: “Elon Musk, thus, is involved in supplying the fascist forces in Ukraine with military communication equipment. And for this, Elon you will be held accountable like an adult – no matter how much you’ll play the fool,” giving rise to speculations that Russia is threatening Musk. The tweets also gave birth to thousands of comments from people — some advising caution and some showing solidarity.

A user tweeted: “Please get Elon Musk extra security just to be safe.” Blockchain advocate Adel de Meyer wrote: “They won't make it look mysterious, it would be an 'unexpected suicide' because you couldn't handle the pressure of Twitter and Tesla was secretly bankrupt and you couldn't handle the fact of the public finding out. Sound about right? 😅 Jokes aside, please be careful 🙏💞.” “We must protect you at all costs. Humanity is counting on you,” another user commented.

Political activist Amy Kremer asked: “👀 Scary. Who is going after him?” “Reading this is scary - As something like this was shared by john mcafee when he was alive 😞 - Our wishes are with you and i hope you have no trouble 🗣,” a tweet read. “I hope you are joking. Millions of people across the world are relying on you to save liberty in the public square. Hire the best security money can buy,” another suggested.






One person remarked: “The CIA would wait until it’s less expected. Not now when ur the #1 story every other day.” “If you have been threatened, you should expose the people behind it. If this is just late-night emo after 2 drinks, never mind,” another added.

Author Ben Mezrich suggested: “I’d avoid elevators, helicopters, second story windows, and tea that you didn’t pour yourself. And if you see someone with an umbrella getting too close, cross to the other side of the street.” A user advised: “Oooh No! I thought this was a joke.. Don‘t write that! You have good Bodyguards! Keep ya Head up! You‘re smart. 🙏🏼🧿 Don‘t order food online.. Best wishes.” “You are way more valuable just in yourself to this world and it's people than any and all of your money put together.  Your heart and mind is your real wealth. And the love you receive for that around the world is also your riches. That's what makes you the richest man. Really,” a tweet added.
