Billionaire Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk seriously worried most of his fans, as well as his own mother, with one of his latest statements.
Recall that the Tesla CEO left a message yesterday morning that read, “If I die under mysterious circumstances, it was nice to meet you.”
“China’s Ilon Musk” and the original
Mae Musk, 74, who is an active Twitter user, responded to a message posted by her son by writing, “That’s not funny,” and adding two angry emoticons. Musk apologized and added: “I will do everything I can to stay alive.”
Fans of Ilon Musk also left a large number of messages in which they asked the billionaire to be more careful. But there were also quite original posts in the comments:
- Ilon, could you load your consciousness into an artificial body with periodic backups? Create something like GLaDOS?
- Dude…you’re building robot armies. There’s no excuse for not having an Ironman suit and a legion of robot bodyguards
- Remember, you have a brother in China
As recently as last year, a video went viral on Weibo showing a man who looks a lot like Ilon Musk. At the time, Musk joked: “Maybe I have Chinese roots.”
Dmitry Rogozin, general director of the state corporation Roscosmos, commented on billionaire Ilon Musk’s words, saying that no one wants him, and recommending that he think about whose side he’s on.
