Musk posted a photo of his “bedside table” on Monday morning with a gun and a can of Diet Coke. The picture also includes the famous painting of George Washington crossing the Delaware River. Musk has previously expressed that he is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment right to bear arms.
Elon Musk posted a photo of his “bedside table” on Twitter Monday morning, filled with guns and cans of Diet Coke. The billionaire CEO captioned the photo “My bedside table that includes two guns, four empty cans of caffeine-free Diet Coke and a recreation of Emanuel Letz’s painting of George Washington crossing the Delaware River.”
A photograph of Washington holding a gun is attached to the case. He apologized in a tweet, saying, “I have no excuse for the lack of coasters. It is unclear whether Musk actually took the picture himself or if it is actually his bedside table.”
Musk expressed support for Second Amendment rights earlier this year following the Sandy Hook shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.
I firmly believe that the right to bear arms is an important safeguard against the possible tyranny of the government. Historically, those in power have not allowed public ownership of guns to maintain their power over the people, Musk told CNBC in an email.
He said that people who buy guns should go through “rigorous background checks”. Musk is also known for his love for Diet Coke. To stay on top of your busy schedule in a day. Musk said he now only has caffeine-free Diet Coke in his offices.
On Saturday, Musk shared a series of slides from a talk the company gave about its vision for Twitter 2.0. The slides included graphs showing that sign-ups reached an average of two million per day, up 66% from a year earlier. A slide also states that Twitter is hiring.
In response to a tweet by Jordan Peterson about Slides, Musk said, “I think I see a way for Twitter to cross one billion monthly users in 12 to 18 months.”
