'Tesla Bankrupt': Twitter Brings Back Elon Musk's Horror Show on April Fool's Day
Elon Musk posted Tesla's bankruptcy as an April Fool's joke back in 2018 but Twitter is not over it yet.
Now, more than ever, with the Tesla Boss being the world's richest man, his 2018 antic seems to be an outlandish joke.
In 2018, Musk has tweeted: "Tesla Goes Bankrupt...Palo Alto, California, April 1, 2018 -
Despite intense efforts to raise money, including a last-ditch mass sale of Easter Eggs, we are sad to report that Tesla has gone completely and totally bankrupt.
So, bankrupt, you can't believe it."Something was seriously fishy about it but Twitter was clowing all the same.
Musk happened to follow up that tweet with another:"Elon was found passed out against a Tesla Model 3, sorrounded by "Teslaquilla" bottles,
the tracks of dried tears still visible on his cheeks." It was accompanied by a photo of him passed out against a Tesla with a signboard reading "Bankwupt".
As per ritual, a Twitter user threw it back to the iconic (?) prank on April Fool's today, with a tweet reading,
BREAKING: Tesla files for bankruptcy after disrupting auto industry, posting record margins & 1,900% stock return past 3 years.
It was accompanied by an article from 2019 that explicated how "Tesla has failed massively as a public company". That, apparently, is joke this time around, if Musk's laughing emoji response is anything to go by.
