Elon Musk, the world's richest man, and the CEO of Tesla (TSLA) and SpaceX, to name a few of his titles, certainly has a reputation for making controversial statements.
Some of his greatest hits, so to speak, include describing President Joe Biden as "damp sock puppet in human form," and calling Senator Elizabeth Warren "Senator Karen" in another Twitter dust-up.
Musk, who has bid to acquire Twitter (TWTR) but threatened to bail on the deal, posted the poo pile after Parag Agrawal, the microblogging site's CEO, offered a lengthy description of the company's efforts to remove bots and spam
And then there was the time he tweeted a photograph of Adolph Hitler with the statement "Stop comparing me to Justin Trudeau. I had a budget."
And then in 2018 Musk called British diver Vernon Unsworth, who was a diver in the Thai cave rescue operation to save a group of stranded boys, a pedophile.
And then there was the tweet that launched a lawsuit from the Securities and Exchange Commission where Musk said "am considering taking Tesla private at $420. Funding secured."
All right, so there seems to be a pattern here--and we haven't even mentioned the unflattering image he tweeted..
of Microsoft founder Bill Gates side-by-side with a pregnant man or his plan to reverse Twitter's ban of former President Donald Trump.
