Elon Musk “deleted” Fortnite

Rated 5/5 (1 person). Log in to rate.

Nowadays, the name, Elon Musk is often in the news. The founder of SpaceX's personality is very controversial which always leads him to be involved in scandals. Most of them are serious like last month when Musk was removed as Tesla's chairman. Also, he was ordered to pay a $20 million fine to settle charges brought against him by the?Securities and Exchange Commission. However, the billionaire has been associated with many less serious issues as well. The thing that most of his public scandals have in common is that they all started as a joke on social media.  

A couple of days ago, Twitter became a battle arena because of fake news about a game called 'Fortnite'. For those of you who are not devout gamers, 'Fortnite' is a cooperative?shooter-survival game?for up to four players to fight off zombie-like creatures and defend objects with fortifications they can build. 

According to the fake newsMusk bought and deleted the game. It was even written that he did this driven by his desire to save the kids from "eternal virginity". Musk is popular on the Internet for his eccentric behaviour so his response to the fake news was not late. He shared screenshot of it in his personal account with the words – "Had to been done ur welcome". The image was obviously edited and not real. However, as expected, his tweet received a wave of negative feedback.

Even the creators of the game responded with an ironical question in game`s official account - "A whole decade, @elonmusk? Just build, LOL”.  The joke relates to Musk`s promise to build a Mars base by 2028His visions are even bigger than just building a base. The billionaire`s long-term plans involve creating a million-person city on the Red Planet in the next 50 to 100 years. But from what we have seen, Musk has the tendency to give promises beyond his capabilities.  

The most popular tweet in the bizarre fight comes from a 'Fortnite' fan who wrote: “Excuse me Mr Musk but I think it's important for me to state that I actually lost my virginity after playing Fortnite.” On which, the ex-CEO of Tesla responded with: “Online doesn’t count”It looks like the tech entrepreneur enjoys creating turmoil on the Internet as much as working on his innovations. 

The original post has more than a million likes and was the reason many memes were madeAlthough his puns get him in a lot of troubles, there isn`t a person who wouldn`t laugh at them. And while we are waiting for his next big breakthrough (or just another scandal to be honest), let`s enjoy some of Musk`s best jokes on Twitter
