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

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

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

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 Æ A-12 Musk.”

But, of course, it wasn’t.

Grimes then revealed that baby X Æ 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.
