A fake account of Elon Musk has seemingly pulled the wool over millions of people's eyes as a post claiming Mark Zuckerberg is a "lizard boy" has gone viral.
An Elon Musk parody account has put out a tweet that has gained more than 30 million views, more than half a million likes, and even the attention of the real Elon Musk. The Musk parody account posted a tweet that said, "I spent $44 billion for this app, and now Lizard boy just decided to hit copy and paste. It's personal now. See you in the cage, Zuck."
It seems that despite the word 'parody' in the Twitter account's name, many people were fooled by the post, even to the point where the real Elon Musk jumped in and wrote, "So many people think this account is me". Furthermore, users have voiced some concerns within the thread about having parody accounts on Twitter at all, even if it's clearly displayed within the Twitter account's name.
"So WHY do we think it is a good idea to have these accounts that are just purposefully confusing. Could we consider not having them. Just real verified people?" wrote one Twitter user.
Another Twitter user wrote, "I love that you didn't dispute Zuck being a lizard boy," to which the real Musk replied, "Maybe it's just a case of using too much moisturizer."
