Elon Musk Mocks ‘Barbie’ and Shares Thoughts on ‘Oppenheimer’
Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and owner of SpaceX, has joined the ranks of disgruntled conservatives who are critical of the feminist movie ‘Barbie.’ As the movie garners record-breaking success at the box office, Musk couldn’t resist sharing his humorous take on it.
The 52-year-old billionaire responded to a meme on Twitter, poking fun at his decision to change the Twitter logo from the blue bird to an X. The meme featured pink Barbie alongside black and white Oppenheimer. Using the opportunity, Musk playfully criticized ‘Barbie,’ commenting, “If you take a shot every time Barbie says the word ‘patriarchy,’ you will pass out before the movie ends.”
Musk isn’t the only one expressing reservations about the movie’s references to patriarchy. Ben Shapiro, a political commentator, previously complained on Twitter about the movie’s usage of the term.
Moreover, Musk also shared his thoughts on Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster ‘Oppenheimer.’ While the movie has been a box-office success, Musk, along with Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI, expressed their hope for the film to inspire a new generation of physicists. Musk playfully commented “Indeed” under Altman’s tweet expressing this sentiment.
On another occasion, Musk shared a humorous tweet, joking about the length of ‘Oppenheimer,’ showing a picture of someone scrolling through TikTok while watching the 3-hour movie. He captioned the picture, “This Oppenheimer movie is way too long.”
Overall, Musk’s remarks add to the ongoing discussions and banter surrounding both ‘Barbie’ and ‘Oppenheimer’ in the entertainment world.
