This is how Elon Musk copes with the Twitter mob coming for him after his comments about the coronavirus.
As far as the law of physics goes, “Every action has a reaction.” Social media is just like physics, but surprisingly messier at times. Naturally, the Twitter mob didn’t take well to Musk’s opinion. He received negative replies from people blasting his so-called “undermining” of the situation, but Musk handled it like a boss- by not biting their bait. As Rogan pointed out, it would be easy to type a reply and send it with no repercussions for the sender.
Such an exchange, according to Rogan, was one of cowardice and weightlessness. Musk agreed, reassuring viewers that he had learned not to take it to heart. Opening up about the CNN dispute regarding the promised ventilators, Musk and Rogan agreed that journalists were steering towards click-bait rather than the truth.
Truly, combining humor and firmness is one of Elon Musk’s many talents. His humor contained a hint of confidence throughout the interview. Whether he was addressing his son or social media, he never faltered in expressing his opinion. That’s what keeps us coming back for more.
