Who remembers Tesla's Cybertruck disaster?

In one of the most memorable moments in the company's history, Musk claimed that their new state-of-the-art Cybertruck was 100 percent unbreakable.

He was so confident in this belief that, at the unveiling event, Musk ordered Tesla's design chief, Franz von Holshausen, to throw a ball at the Cybertrucks window.

Well, we all remember what happened next, don't we?

The rock completely shattered the first window...

And, when Musk demanded that von Holshausen throw a second rock, the same thing happened again.

"It worked in rehearsals..."

As Musk attempted to laugh off the embarrassing blunder, viewers from all over the world couldn't help but cringe.

Inevitably, the incident led to people mocking Tesla...

And Musk himself received a lot of criticism for the bizarre car design alone.

Not that Musk seemed to care.

In fact, the Cybertruck sales boomed following the incident so, it's safe to say, the entrepreneur bounced back pretty quickly.

But, putting smashed up Cybertrucks to one side, many aspects of Musk's personal life has wound up in the headlines, too.


In May last year, Musk welcomed a baby boy with his girlfriend, Canadian DJ, Grimes.

And, of course, this unconventional couple were never going to christen their child with a conventional name, were they?

Shortly after the birth, Musk took to Twitter to announce that his child was named "X Γ† A-12 Musk."

People hoped it was a joke...

But, of course, it wasn't.

And, just to add even more flames to fire...

Grimes then revealed that baby X Γ† A-12 would be raised gender neutral, despite Musk repeatedly referring to his son as "he."

And this week, it appears Musk has gotten on the wrong side of fans once again.

It's safe to say, he was flooded with a wave of criticism...

Musk tweeted the message without context.

Though it's clear many have come to their own conclusion on what he meant - with some believing the star was branding comedy as too "politically correct."

Here's the tweet in question:
