Twitter’s new owner Elon Musk is being trolled on his own platform after he tweeted a photo of his bedside table on Monday, November 28, which showed a number of empty Diet Coke cans as well as a couple of guns.
“My bedside table,” the SpaceX founder captioned the tweet, writing in a follow-up tweet, “There is no excuse for my lack of coasters.” The billionaire was immediately mocked and trolled on social media, albeit more for his choice of beverage than his habit of sleeping with firearms next to him.
“Zero caffeine diet coke is just weird water,” one of them said, while another wrote, “I was about to say… Those Diet Coke can rings on your table are an abomination. Ask Jeff Bezos to send you some coasters for crying out loud.” One more noted, “The actual richest man on Earth drinks Caffeine-free Diet Coke, objectively the worst drink ever conceived.”
Another said, “Diet Coke Elon? Is that how you keep your boyish figure?” One more stated, “Caffeine Free Diet Coke is the sign of a broken man. Either take the hit on the caffeine or drink a different soda.” Another user quipped, “Woah, that’s dangerous! Diet Coke isn’t good for you, bro.” One more said, “Just be carefully (sic) not to accidentally grab the Diet Coke if an intruder breaks in.”
Back in August, Musk revealed on Full Send podcast that his primary residence was a three-bedroom property that he bought for $45,000, in Boca Chica, Texas, near his SpaceX facility. “It cost like $45,000 or something,” Musk said. “It’s very small.”
He also has a Boxable tiny home in Boca Chica, which he uses as a guest house for friends who come to visit. Musk is the wealthiest person alive with a net worth of an estimated $268 billion.
