AOC And Elon Musk Got Into An Awkward Twitter Feud After He Bizarrely Accused Her Of ‘Hitting’ On Him

Since buying Twitter, billionaire and questionable automaker Elon Musk has been on a tear. His tweets, already dodgy, have somehow gotten even more awkward. (Still, at least he’s ignoring Lauren Boebert.) On Friday, he decided to try his hand at trolling lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, with deeply uncomfortable results.

As per Insider, AOC had fired off a tweet dragging a billionaire who control social media. “Tired of having to collectively stress about what explosion of hate crimes is happening bc some billionaire with an ego problem unilaterally controls a massive communication platform and skews it because Tucker Carlson or Peter Thiel took him to dinner and made him feel special,” she wrote.

But which social media company-owning billionaire was she taking to task? Musk appeared to think it was him, and since he already has a history of tweeting weird things to Democratic lawmakers, he did it again. “Stop hitting on me, I’m really shy,” he wrote back.

In a since-deleted tweet, AOC responded that it wasn’t him she was subtweeting. “I was talking about Zuckerberg but ok,” she wrote.

She later wrote about Musk for real, tweeting, alongside a shrug emoji, “like I said, ego problems.”

Since Musk’s purchase of Twitter was cleared last week, Republicans have wondered if he’ll reinstate multiple banned accounts, most notably the one belonging to a certain former president. Musk has confirmed what he’ll do, but given how many right-leaning tweets he’s been making of late, it must really be a question of when.
