Elon Musk caused a collective Twitter eye roll by tweeting out a crude internet meme about masturbation and adding his own dad joke to the mix.
The multibillionaire founder of Tesla and SpaceX tweeted the meme on Thursday, which showed a man with an extremely muscular right arm and sporting a medal.
It's accompanied with the text: "PornHub awards first user to reach one million videos watched."
Musk posted the meme to his 31 million followers, adding: "Guess he's not left-handed."
The photo appears to be of Matthias Schlitte, a professional German arm wrestler who was born with a genetic defect that makes his right arm bone look much larger than his left, according to ESPN.
He has been referred to as the "real life Hellboy" or "real life Popeye" in the past.
The photo appears to be from the World Arm Wrestling Cup in Zagreb, Croatia, where he came in second place in 2015 and 2016, according to his website.
By October 2018, that picture had been turned into a meme about masturbation on sites like 9gag and Reddit.
Musk's followers seemed to have appreciated Thursday's joke, nonetheless, with people reacting with disbelief that a tech multibillionaire would be tweeting out masturbation memes.
As of Thursday, Musk — who runs Tesla, SpaceX, and The Boring Company — is estimated to be worth $37.7 billion, according to Forbes. In 2019, the magazine listed him as the 40th richest man in the world.
Earlier this month he released his first EDM track — "Don't Doubt ur Vibe" — which was streamed 2.6 million times in less than a week, and has made it into SoundCloud's top ten most popular tracks.Source: Read Full Article
