`Poor Elon` trended on Twitter after he voiced support for the Republican party


After Elon Musk announced his political views and the news that he was losing billions a day, “Poor Elon” started trending on Twitter on May 19. The announcement prompted users to tweet “Poor Elon” on the microblogging platform.

In his tweet, Musk mentioned that he previously voted for the Democrats because they were “the kindness party.”

He tweeted: “In the past I voted Democrat because they were (mostly) the kindness party. But they have become the party of division and hatred so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican. Watch their dirty tricks now campaign against me”

The 50-year-old billionaire recently said he would reverse Twitter’s ban on former US President Donald Trump, a Republican, when he buys the social media platform. He also said that Twitter is far left because it is headquartered in California, a state known for progressive politics.

Shares of Tesla fell 6.8 PERCENT on Wednesday after he announced his support for the Republicans and Tesla was removed from a closely monitored sustainability index.

“Poor Elon is now maybe only the 2nd or 3rd richest man in the world,” said one Twitter user.

Musk’s mother criticized some of the tweets for “nasty remarks,” claiming they were “troll or bot,” referring to fake accounts.
His mother Maye Musk tweeted: “Digging deeper… Poor Elon is trending. This Twitter account has 16 followers. It has over 1000 likes and almost 400 retweets from people who also have very few followers. One has only 7 followers. Who is creating these trends? And why are they unfair and evil?”
