World’s richest man, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk bizarrely said that he was challenging Russian President Vladimir Putin to single combat in a tweet on Monday over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Musk tweeted: “I hereby challenge Vladimir Putin to single combat. Stakes are Ukraine.”
He wrote some of those words in Cyrillic script, and also shared a translated English version.
In a follow-up tweet, he tagged the official Twitter account for the Russian presidency and wrote: “Do you agree to this fight?”
Just so you know, Russian President Vladimir Putin is a former Russian KGB spy with probable military training, whereas Musk has spent most of his time developing and deploying computer and engineering solutions for businesses.
The Tesla CEO is also renowned for his social media antics, and this might just be one of them, even though majority of the world would appreciate if the war in Ukraine is halted already.
