Shortly after the birth of his first child, Elon Musk has once again hit the headlines by defying lockdown orders to reopen his Tesla factories.
He's certainly raised some eyebrows ...
This week, Elon Musk has been dominating the headlines.
via: GettyThe South African entrepreneur recently welcomed the birth of his first child with his partner, Grimes, and people have been going crazy about the bizarre name. But that's not the only reason people can't seem to stop talking about the star.
Today, he is in the headlines for a different reason entirely...
via: GettyElon has taken to Twitter to make some rather incendiary remarks about his Tesla factories ...
As most of you will know, Elon Musk is currently one of the wealthiest men in the world.
via: Getty ImagesBeing the founder, CEO, and Chief Engineering Designer of SpaceX and Tesla, he has an awful lot going for him.
So, of course, everyone wants to know more about him.
via: GettyHe's a pretty unusual character and is not afraid of stirring the pot.
Elon has done some pretty eye-opening things in the past.
via: Getty ImagesWhen unveiling Tesla's latest Cyber truck design in November last year, Eleon got, for lack of a better word, a bit cocky.
We all remember this awful moment.
via: Getty ImagesHe claimed that the 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.
Maybe he threw it a little hard...
"It worked in rehearsals..."

Inevitably the incident led to people mocking the living hell out of Tesla.

People began mocking Elon directly.
Not that Musk seems to care...
Elon is certainly a man who knows what he's doing.
via: Getty ImagesBehind the strange behaviors, he is a seriously smart guy and, even if we don't agree with everything that he does, it is undeniable that he is paving the path in the world of technology.
He seemed to immediately bounce back from the Cybertruck disaster...
via: Getty ImagesMeaning that it will certainly take a lot to drag this man down.
And, in more personal news...
via: Getty ImagesElon 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.

Obviously, people are in complete disbelief at the name choice.

But now the star has hit headlines for a different controversy.

And while some admired his defiance ...Uhm ... at least he was willing to put himself on the line?
Others were less than impressed.
