After tweeting that the infamous Pyramids of Giza were built by aliens, Elon Musk has received an unexpected invitation from Egyptian officials…
When is Elon Musk not stirring up the controversy?
The South African entrepreneur is constantly in and out of the headlines but, this week, he managed to offend an entire country with some rather controversial claims.
Being the founder, CEO, and Chief Engineering Designer of SpaceX and Tesla, he has an awful lot going for him.
There’s no denying that he is a seriously intelligent man and, even if we don’t agree with everything that he says or does, it is undeniable to see that he is paving the path in the world of technology.
It is quite evident that Elon is a pretty unusual character and, as a result, has made for some great online entertainment in the past.
When unveiling Tesla’s latest Cyber truck design in November last year, Elon got, for lack of a better word, a bit cocky.
We all remember this awful moment.
He claimed that the new Tesla Cyber Truck was unbreakable, and he was so confident in the shatterproof design that he asked Tesla design chief, Franz von Holshausen, to throw a rock at the Cybertrucks window.
Because the ball completely shattered the Cybertrucks supposedly shatterproof glass and, well, made Musk look like a bit of an idiot.
As the founder and CEO of Tesla, he received a lot of criticism for the bizarre car design.
Meaning that it will certainly take a lot to drag this man down.
Elon and his partner, Grimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher, recently welcomed their first child… And, of course, they caused a whole lot of controversy in doing so.
On Star Wars Day, May 4th, Elon became a dad.
And he shared this adorable photo onto Twitter.
But, when asked what the baby’s name is, Musk casually replied with, “X Æ A-12 Musk.”
And it wasn’t a joke.
But did we really expect anything less from the unconventional CEO?
And this time, he had his horizons set upon the infamous pyramids of Giza.
With many speculating just how these colossal structures were erected so long ago… 2550 to 2490 B.C., to be precise.
On Friday, he randomly tweeted his support of the old “aliens built the Pyramids” conspiracy theory, and he received a whole lot of backlash as a result.
Surely, by supporting the alien theory, he is completely disregarding the labor and the efforts of the men who actually did spend years building these historic monuments?
Has the entrepreneur taken it too far this time?
And they have personally invited Elon to visit their country in an attempt to educate himself on their history.
“I follow your work with a lot of admiration,” Al-Mashat tweeted on Saturday. “I invite you & Space X to explore the writings about how the pyramids were built and also to check out the tombs of the pyramid builders.”
Of course, Elon hasn’t responded to Al Mashat’s invite… Because that would mean admitting he was wrong, wouldn’t it?
In doing so, you can educate yourself for once.
For times when the Space X founder was right, however, keep scrolling to see how his historic rocket launch left a lot of flat-earthers a little red-faced…
