Musk Mania

On Monday, TIME named Elon Musk its 2021 Person of the Year. The magazine, which has gone all in on NFTs, surely knew Musk is a loose cannon on Twitter. And it only took one day for him to fire off tweets that led some people to criticize TIME for choosing him.

Musk replied: “Stop projecting! You remind me of when I was a kid and my friend’s angry Mom would just randomly yell at everyone for no reason.” Thirteen minutes later, he tweeted another response, even saltier: “Please don’t call the manager on me, Senator Karen 🙏”
