Tony Stark wannabe and billionaire edgelord Elon Musk has gone viral again. And no, no dead passengers on the sidewalk this time either. Musk is in the news for telling US Senator Bernie Sanders that he didn't know Sanders was still alive.
If you are wondering what this tweet was in response to, Sanders had earlier tweeted about the extremely wealthy people paying their fair share of taxes.
I keep forgetting that you’re still alive— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) November 14, 2021
Naturally, when Twitter found out that the lead singer of 30 Seconds to Mars was being a child again, there was a reaction.
at least this dude took off the mask: the super rich bitterly hate anyone who suggests they pay their fair share. and this is him snapping like a spoiled brat at a u.s. senator, imagine what he thinks of all the little people https://t.co/zzVKw0oFWh— John DeVore (@JohnDeVore) November 14, 2021

One way to assess whether powerful people are actually also good people is how they treat the elderly, who have lived their own full and rich lives. https://t.co/HSevNJ17FK— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) November 14, 2021

Basic human decency.
What a d**k thing to say to someone! On the other hand, if you think that was cool of him, well, yaay for you!
