Elon Musk Birthday Special | Megan Thee Stallion belting out, "I'm a savage.. Classy, bougie, ratchet.. Sassy, moody, nasty," stands absolutely true for tech billionaire Elon Musk who owns SpaceX and Tesla. If you haven't been living under a rock, you probably know that he is one of the wittiest beings you'll ever find on Twitter. After all, who is accused of being an alien and to top it, who admits being one! Well, birthday boy, Elon Musk does. 

He is probably the only one who has some weird theories weaved around him by eccentric internet users. Time and again, many have advocated that Musk is not a human but an alien in disguise. Being least bothered about it, this wealthiest man has not even tried to refute these theories. Instead, on some occasions, he participated in them and had his share of fun. 

On one occasion, when Musk tweeted, “The Earth is not flat, it’s a hollow globe & Donkey King lives there!” a user simply asked if he was an alien and Musk responded casually writing, “Obv”.

In another instance, a user posted a video of him and asked the same question to Musk again. Responding to the Twitterati, he commented, "Of course”. The video was of Musk saying that aliens could be living among us and he wouldn't be surprised. 

However, once in 2015, Musk seemingly refuted the claims but in his own witty way. “The rumor that I’m building a spaceship to get back to my home planet Mars is totally untrue,” he tweeted.
