Elon Musk has come under serious fire this week after he shared his opinion on pronouns over Twitter.
Now, 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.
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.
Well, we all remember what happened next, don’t we?
And, when Musk demanded that von Holshausen throw a second rock, the same thing happened again.
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 this year, Musk welcomed a baby boy with his girlfriend, Canadian DJ, Grimes.
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, he elaborated further on his stance on the use of pronouns – a controversial move he might not be able to bounce so smoothly back from.
A gesture meant to show support for people whose gender identities are different from those they were given at birth.
However, the Twitter community was not impressed with his snippy reply…
And, as a result, he was flooded with a wave of criticism, with many pointing out the overtly unconventional name he had given his own child.
“I absolutely support trans, but all these pronouns are an [sic] esthetic nightmare.”
Has Musk taken it too far? Or was he merely expressing a valid opinion?
