The 32-year-old singer-songwriter later addressed many of her fans who were bothered by the Tesla creator’s tweets. Thus far, social media users think Elon slammed the idea because he doesn’t support the LGBTQ+ movement.

The 49-year-old Space X founder hasn’t commented on the backlash yet, but his comment was controversial enough, that Grimes did on her own account. She wrote to him that she loved him, but begged Elon to turn off his phone or call her.
“I cannot support hate,” Grimes wrote in her since-deleted tweet, before going on to say, “please stop this. I know this isn’t in your heart.” Elon also tweeted that Twitter sucked as well, which took far less heat from social media users.

This isn’t the first time the couple has been in the headlines.
As most know, Grimes and Elon Musk welcomed their child into the world back in May of this year. They controversially gave it the name, X AE A-XII which sparked a lot of media headlines and conspiracies as to what it’s supposed to mean. Even the pronunciation has been a mystery.
As it was previously reported, media outlets pointed out how Grimes and Elon Musk weren’t actually going to give their child the name, due to its illegality in the state of California. According to multiple reports, it’s not possible to include numbers in a name.
Elon Musk has been in the headlines for other reasons as well as of late, including when he appeared on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast to talk about a number of issues in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic.
Elon discussed the trade-offs between freedom and safety, including the constitutional violations the lockdowns purportedly facilitated. Elon also controversially claimed he would pull one of his factories out of California if the lockdowns continued.
Reportedly, Elon considered moving one of his factories to the state of Nevada instead.
