Two weeks ago, on May 4, singer Grimes and Tesla CEO Elon Musk welcomed their first child together. Now the maternal grandmother of that child is slamming Musk’s recent behavior on Twitter.
Grimes and Musk interestingly named their newborn son, X Æ A-12 Musk. However, he will go by “X” for short.
As Mamas Uncut previously reported, while announcing their son’s birth, Grimes revealed that labor, delivery, and recovery hadn’t been easy. After making a slight mistake in spelling while explaining the origins of X’s name, Grimes said, “I am recovering from surgery and barely alive so may my typos b forgiven but, d*mnit. That was meant to be profound.”
Now, Grimes’ mom, writer Sandy Garossino, is calling the father of her grandchild out for his behavior on Twitter.
On May 11, Musk took to his account and revealed that despite government regulations Telsa factories are reopening production. “Tesla is restarting production today against Alameda County rules. I will be on the line with everyone else. If anyone is arrested, I ask that it only be me.”
He then followed up the tweet with another that said, “Take the red pill.” According to The Washington Post, “red-pilling, originally a reference to the 1999 movie The Matrix, is a term used online to describe a conversion to extreme, far-right views.”
And while the director of The Matrix condemned Musk’s tweet and Ivanka Trump’s response to it, so did Garossino.
While the tweet has since been deleted, Garossino wrote, “If your partner went through a challenging pregnancy and childbirth in the last two weeks…And you were over 16 years old, would you be blarring MRA bulls**t on Twitter right now?”
That particular tweet came after writing, “apparently it’s a good thing that I muted a certain name on Twitter.” And she was even caught retweeting another tweet that suggested Musk should be arrested for his actions.
Grimes also liked a tweet that joked, “This is Grimes’ mom,” when referring to her now-deleted tweets. “Thanksgiving is going to be fun.”
