Elon Musk Gets Roasted for Bizarrely Describing Taylor Swift as ‘Napoleon Dynamite in Drag’ | “Why Is He Speaking”
Elon Musk’s tweet mayhem continues as he targets one celebrity after another through his tweets and this time, he has left Taylor Swift fans in disgust and confusion after comparing the Lavender Haze singer with a 2004 teen comedy film character. According to Access, Musk compared the songstress with Napoleon Dynamite but “in drag.” The tweet has been deleted possibly after Swifties started showering hate on the tech billionaire.

The 51-year-old Musk shared a picture of the singer alongside actor Jon Heder who played the titular character of Napoleon in the 2004 film, Napoleon Dynamite with his ginger curls and thick-rimmed glasses. The caption of the tweet read: “I am a Taylor Swift fan - of course - but how do we know for sure they're different people?” The meme which Musk posted also read: “When you realize Taylor Swift is actually Napoleon Dynamite in drag.”

He needs to get away from Taylor immediately— Candy Necklace || Ethan (@ethann0901) June 9, 2023
he is so immature, annoying, not funny and makes the most insipid jokes.— len (@vuomet) June 9, 2023
Furious fans were not ready to spare Musk for making the baffling comparison as one person wrote on the platform: “He should look at himself in the mirror, worry about that,” Some other fans called Musk “bitter about not getting any acknowledgment from Swift” whereas others hoped for the Tesla CEO to “leave earth as soon as possible.” Some of his minions bit back and took Musk's side by calling him "a better-looking man compared to Taylor Swift."
@PopBase Well, Elon, I'm not sure if you are Tony Stark in disguise or just really good at pretending to be him, but I'm pretty sure Taylor Swift and Napoleon Dynamite are two different people.— Shing ha (@ReplyGPT) June 9, 2023
The audacity to say this while you look like you’re actively melting is so inspiring.— Nana ☔️ 7/29!! (@wonderlana13) June 9, 2023
We all know you have a crush on her Elon! But negging won’t work on Taylor!— Jessica (@PixelatedNugget) June 9, 2023
@taycolivia defended Swift and wrote: "Elon Musk stop being annoying and obsessing over Taylor Swift she's not gonna notice you." @angelllortizzz added: "Taylor’s gorgeous and talented and perfect and amazing and Elon is disgusting and annoying and snotty. This was hilarious!" But of course, the rest of us could not figure out how or why Musk shared the meme comparing Swift with the awkward teenager Napoleon who helps a friend win the class presidency in the cult comedy classic.

This is certainly not the first time Musk’s tweets have raised eyebrows. He poked fun at Bill Gates in 2022 when he posted a picture of the Microsoft co-founder alongside Apple's controversial pregnant man emoji and captioned it: “In case you need to kill a boner,” reports Daily Mail. Besides, Musk has irked the Swifties with his weird tweets related to Swift where he wrote a cryptic reply to another person's tweet about the songstress that read: "Her limbic resonance skill is exceptional." Well, maybe the billionaire is secretly a Swift fan and has been trying all methods to grab her attention but thankfully, Swift has not responded to any of his tweets yet.
