Elon Musk has come under serious fire this week after he shared a cryptic message on his Twitter...
Has he finally taken it too far?
Getty ImagesNow, Tesla and SpaceX founder is no stranger to a little online controversy, with him always making it into the headlines with both his professional ventures and his personal ones.
Who remembers Tesla's Cybertruck disaster?
Getty ImagesIn 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.
Getty ImagesWell, we all remember what happened next, don't we?
The rock completely shattered the first window...
Getty ImagesAnd, when Musk demanded that von Holshausen throw a second rock, the same thing happened again.
"It worked in rehearsals..."
Getty ImagesAs 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...

Not that Musk seemed to care.
Getty ImagesIn 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?

And, just to add even more flames to fire...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.
The star created a Twitter firestorm early Wednesday after he posted a cryptic phrase to Twitter.
The tweet racked up over 700,000 likes and 80,000 retweets...
It's safe to say, he was flooded with a wave of criticism...

Just Elon showing off his true conservative capitalist colors.— Ben Costello (@bencostello) January 13, 2021
Making sure that a billionaire can laugh at inappropriate jokes while 380,000 Americans have died of Covid is not a priority.
I hate you so much— Chris Mitchell (@SCG_4_life) January 14, 2021
You’re an unrelatable hack. You would get booed off the stage at any club.— Steve Hofstetter (@SteveHofstetter) January 13, 2021

How can a person be as rich as yourself and not want to end inequality. You could change the world overnight if you truly wanted to. Space exploration is great but our own planet is in dire need of help in many ways— The Lurker (@TheLurker1234) January 13, 2021
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:
