A while ago, the Tesla CEO shared a meme on Twitter depicting a British Red Coat with “love to oppress” written on his hat against the backdrop of the American Revolutionary War, with the caption “when you put he/him in (yo)ur bio”.
Recently, Musk posted another tweet in which he wrote, “I absolutely support trans, but all these pronouns are an esthetic nightmare.”
The 49-year-old then went on to share a 2017 tweet by Tesla claiming it had scored 100 out of 100 for the fourth year in a row in LGBTQ equality, and captioned it “Oh and umm…”
Musk’s tweets caused a stir on social media with netizens calling him out for “not respecting trans people”.
“Dude you named your kid XÿLôphœń,” wrote a Twitter user.
