Elon Musk’s Joke At Tesla Rival For Selling Smaller Cars Leaves The Internet In Splits

Billionaire Elon Musk functions without a filter on his Twitter timeline. And the internet got to see the unfiltered version of Tesla’s CEO again after he fooled rival electric vehicle maker Lucid Motors for their poor sales. Lucid lowered its production lead from 12,000-14,000 to 6,000-7,000 and revenue fell to $96 million from estimates of $147 million. “I had more kids in Q2 than they were making cars!” Musk tweeted. His tweet came after Lucid’s quarterly reports said the company had sold just 679 cars in the second quarter of this year.

Musk’s tweet sent the internet into a frenzy with many users proclaiming him the “winner of the” internet of the day.

While some users came up with memes on Musk’s answer, there were others who didn’t find his dig amusing.

Musk, who is the father of 9 children, from three different partners, has spoken out about having a large family.

In a tweet thread in June, Musk joked about his contribution to solving the problem of population collapse in the US. Musk had previously posted a photo with statistics on the total fertility rate (TFR), which refers to the number of children a woman will have in the US. The chart pointed to a sharp decline in the rate in recent decades, to a point where it is below the “replacement” level. Referring to the statistics, he added that recent years had been a disaster for demographics.

Musk’s view of population and childbearing is very similar to that of his father, who recently revealed that he had fathered his second child in 2019 with his 35-year-old stepdaughter. “All we’re on Earth for is to procreate. If I could have another child, I would. I see no reason not to,” Musk’s eldest had said when he revealed about his second child.
