Elon 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.

Being 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.

He's a pretty unusual character and is not afraid of stirring the pot.

Elon has done some pretty eye-opening things in the past.

When 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.

He 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...

The ball shattered the Cybertrucks supposedly shatterproof glass and, well, made Musk look like a bit of an idiot.

"It worked in rehearsals..."

After the fail during the presentation, Musk tweeted a video made earlier, when they had successfully practiced the stunt.

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

Musk's presentation seems to have seriously damaged Tesla's reputation.

People began mocking Elon directly.

As the founder and CEO of Tesla, Elon received a lot of criticism for the bizarre car design.

Not that Musk seems to care...

Frankly, this guy is so rich he can do whatever he very well wants to.

Elon is certainly a man who knows what he's doing.

Behind 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...

Meaning that it will certainly take a lot to drag this man down.

And, in more personal news...

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.

The little bundle of joy appears to be in great health...

But, when asked what the baby's name is, Musk replied with, "X Æ A-12 Musk." And it wasn't a joke.

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

But did we really expect anything less from the unconventional CEO?

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

He took to Twitter to claim he was willing to defy the law to ensure his Tesla factories can reopen.

And while some admired his defiance ...

Uhm ... at least he was willing to put himself on the line?

Others were less than impressed.

Maybe not the time to start provoking the police, hey Elon? Want more controversy from this out-there businessman? Scroll on for his scheme for getting ventilators to the USA ...
