1. The combat challenge
Elon Musk is known for his controversial tweets. But, the above challenge sent a jitter of mixed feelings across users on the multimedia platform.
Elon Musk challenged Putin in a tweet, which reads:
I hereby challenge Vladimir Putin to single combat. Stakes are Ukraine.
Musk used the microblogging app as a 'war zone,' and expressed his feelings against, Putin, former KGB member, who might still have a few tricks up his sleeve.
A dismayed user replied:
And you don’t take on much, put the country and millions of people on the line?
2. The confirmation of the challenge
Musk follows up with another tweet, this time asking the Kremlin office whether they 'consent' to the battle. 'If Putin could so easily humiliate the west, then he would accept the challenge,' Musk added. 'But he will not.'
A user tweeted:
Did you think this through? Or Am I missing something?
To which Elon Musk replied:
I am absolutely serious.
Our sincerely hope is that in the future, the stake of a country shouldn't be defined by a 'single combat' match with a billionaire.
3. The not-so-funny tweet
So here's one that didn't make us burst out in laughter.
