After Manchester United, Tech billionaire Elon Musk's tweet on 'parenting and career' has sparked a new debate among his followers. The 51-year-old shared his thoughts on parenting and wrote, "Being a Mom is just as important as any career." While some of his followers agreed to him, there were many who joked about his secret affairs and kids.
A user wrote, "Now I get it... why you go around making babies..." Another said, "Terrible take, delete this post if you have a finger without a ring to do so." A third user said, "As if you care. Just because you like getting women pregnant doesn't make you a woman's liberationist."
