Elon Musk is not done “lending a helping hand” to Ukraine. Earlier today, things took an unusual turn as the billionaire tweeted a challenge addressed to Russian President Vladimir Putin, asking for a “single combat,” with the “stakes” being Ukraine.
He followed this up with a tweet tagging the Kremlin, asking “do you agree to this fight?” in Russian.
Musk had been shown speaking with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky earlier in the month. And a few days ago, Musk sent a second shipment of Starlink terminals and power supplies to Ukraine.
As of this writing, the Kremlin has not yet issued a response to the challenge.
Elon’s tweet though has received quite a few:
And in case you’re wondering, Elon is “absolutely serious.”
While the commentary was first made on Twitter, the news has quickly spread to other social media platforms, with r/wallstreetbets hailing Elon as a hero for having “WSB-level stakes.” Naturally, one of the top comments on the degenerate-focused thread is “Where can I bet on this?”
Another top comment ponders the strategy behind the tweet, with one user commenting, “I don’t know if he is trying to get him in the open to assassinate him or if Elon really believes he could win.” This serious talk however degrades the Musk fanboys, with it inevitably leading to the real discussion on why Elon is making such comments.
