Elon Musk, Twitter and the early morning. What could go wrong?
Elon Musk is currently the richest man in the world, according to Forbes. At 50 years old, the South African businessman is recognized by companies such as Tesla and SpaceX, but he is also known for his frenetic activity on Twitter.
The tycoon is a fan of memes and this time he used one to compare Justin Trudeau , the Prime Minister of Canada with… Adolf Hitler.
Elon Musk tweeted a Hitler meme early Thursday morning with the caption: “Stop comparing me to Justin Trudeau . I had a budget.”
The meme was a response to a Coinbase tweet reporting Canadian government lockdowns of cryptocurrency accounts tied to a truckers’ strike in Canada.
What happens in Canada?
Truckers transporting goods between the Canadian and US borders have been protesting the requirement of COVID -19 vaccination doses to carry out their work.
Justin Trudeau ‘s government has applied emergency regulations to block foreign donations, particularly from extreme right-wing groups in the United States, to these protests.
Musk’s controversial tweets
This is not the first time that Elon Musk has caused controversy on Twitter .
In the past, he used Twitter to call a man a “pedophile” who wanted to save children trapped in a cave, cause losses for investors in his company Tesla by claiming he was going to take it private, and cause chaos in the world of cryptocurrencies . .
