Tom Brady, the NFL star, asked if Elon Musk could delete a photo of the Buccaneers quarterback. Brady was referring to the infamous combine photo, which surfaced in 2000. 

Still dealing with the NFL picture, Brady asked the Tesla and SpaceX CEO “If you buy twitter can you delete the combine photo?” 

This comes after Musk floated a $41 billion takeover offer to the social media giant. Musk initially announced he owned a 9% stake in Twitter but turned down an opportunity to be on the board of directors. 

Brady’s post drew some comments, with one user jokingly posting the photo. The NFL pro asked Musk to ban the individual. 

While the Twitter board of directors hasn’t responded to Musk’s offer, they’ve acknowledged receiving it and are reviewing it. In a text to the chairperson, Bret Taylor, Musk detailed “I invested in Twitter as I believe in its potential to be the platform for free speech around the globe, and I believe free speech is a societal imperative for a functioning democracy”, adding, “Since making my investment I now realize the company will neither thrive nor serve this societal imperative in its current form. Twitter needs to be transformed as a private company”.

He concluded, “My offer is my best and final offer and if it is not accepted, I would need to reconsider my position as a shareholder”. 

Musk already has several plans for Twitter, including its subscription plan and possibly turning its headquarters into a homeless shelter.

However, his takeover bid has met some resistance from Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Al Saud, who is also one of Twitter’s largest shareholders. The billionaire said, “I don’t believe that the proposed offer by @elonmusk ($54.20) comes close to the intrinsic value of @Twitter given its growth prospects”.
