elon musk, elon musk china rocket launch, Getting an epic lesson from Elon Musk on trolling 101, this guy will know now that getting your facts right even while trolling is extremely important.

Launching a satellite is no cakewalk and requires great research and knowledge, not to mention the amount of hard work, time and dedication scores of people put in such magnum opus projects. And if something fails or some glitch arises everything may fall apart in a few seconds. Something similar happened when due to an anomaly China’s latest rocket launch failed, shattering the country’s dream to launch an extremely heavy 7.5-tonne experimental communications satellite into orbit.

There is no denying the amount of work by thousands that is put in for a launch such as this, not to forget the labour of love, but very few would be able to truly understand the pain that failure of such a project could inflict. And Tesla man and Space X CEO, Elon Musk is one of them, which is probably why he tweeted on Sunday, “I know how painful that is to the people who designed & built it.” Musk shared the news on his Twitter timeline with the sorry message.

Now, taking jibes about ‘Made in China’ things is something most of us are often guilty of, primarily because of the ‘short life’ associated with China-produced goods that are available in the market. Well, something similar happened when an Indian guy mocked China in a replied to Musk’s tweet saying, “Well what else can you expect from Made in China things😂😂”.

What happened next should be a lesson in troll-handling 101, and why even trolls should get their facts straight before targeting people. What seemed like a crude desi joke that we often make in our everyday life, certainly did not go down well with Musk. The South African-born Canadian-American business tycoon and inventor reminded the troll that almost every the phone including the hi-tech iPhones and even many Android ones are manufactured in China. Check, mate!

Musk wrote: “Actually, China manufacturing quality is excellent. Among other things, that’s where iPhones, many Android phones & most laptops are made.”

Many applauded Musk and even praised him for being humble.

However, the smartypants in question did not take the generous offering by Musk, his knowledge and humility. Instead, he went on to tweet claiming how he was “cyber-bullied by Elon Musk”!
