Remember the time when Elon Musk was regarded as a cool and innovative entrepreneur? Almost everyone admired him or what he did for the world with his SpaceX program or Tesla cars. However, that time is long gone. Now he’s a firm capitalist and doesn’t believe in pronouns. He also believes that people were panicking too much about the pandemic. Not only that but he is also against government stimulus. Elon Musk believes, ‘Another government stimulus package is not in the best interests of the people imo.’ This and many other things are making the people lose their admiration for him. Jameela Jamil came after him for something different though.
Here is what Elon said:
Jameela Jamil takes the opportunity to drag the hell out of Elon Musk
You may know Jameela Jamil from her role as Tahani Al-Jamil in ‘The Good Place’. She’s also an activist and champion of women’s rights, trans rights, and empowering people of all identities such as non-binary individuals. Non-binary individuals are people who may choose to identify with two or no gender at all. They choose their own pronouns that people want to call them. Hence, Elon Musk saying ‘pronouns suck’ led to many non-binary individuals taking offense.
Here’s what Jameela Jamil had to say on that:
Jameela is referring to Elon Musk’s new child with Grimes named X Æ A-Xii. If you’re interested to see how that name is pronounced, there are tons of videos online.
Anyway, others were also dragging Elon Musk for being ignorant in his tweets. One user wrote:
Pretty disgusting to see from you. What’s so hard about calling someone a pronoun? It literally does absolutely nothing to you to call them it and it’s what they like to be referred as so why not just do it? I genuinely don’t understand why you people don’t like them.
Transgender rights are important in a free and equal society that cares about everyone—from the very rich like you to the most vulnerable like them. This shouldn’t be in dispute. But cancel culture does suck, which is why we should educate people not futilely try to destroy them.
Well, Grimes had also something to say on the matter
“I love you but please turn off ur phone or give me a dall [sic]. I cannot support hate. Please stop this. I know this isn’t your heart”.
Later the following day Elon unfollowed Grimes as a response. Though, the two resolved matters and also started following her later on.
