Woman Tries To Attack Elon Musk On Twitter, Doesn’t Expect A Response Like This

If you’re going to challenge the CEO of Tesla, SpaceX, and Neuralink on Twitter, you had better come with all of your facts straight. A stand-up comedian and published author named Laurie Kilmartin learned that the hard way when she responded to a recent SpaceX Twitter story on Falcon 9 rocket launch by suggesting Elon Musk’s funds be concentrated toward a more ‘noble’ cause than space science. One of the mogul’s followers decided to step in and inject a dose of logic into the conversation, and the exchange that followed left Kilmartin – and everyone watching from home – literally speechless. Probably the best part of this Elon Musk Twiter exchange is that it’s not just some petty bickering, but rather cold hard facts thrown at those, who didn’t bother to actually interest themselves in the cause of space exploration and science. Scroll down to see the initial Elon Musk tweet that caused this thread and the best tweets on Falcon 9 rocket launch that followed it below!

Though Elon Musk is currently celebrating the launch of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket, not everyone is happy about it

No matter what you do in this world, no matter how amazing it is, and no matter what kind of potential it has, there will always be that one special little snowflake to shit all over you. Humans, never satisfied with anything.

Yep... These same snowflakes that live in gated communities, drive a new Mercedes but somehow claim to be a member of an oppressed class and contribute nothing but criticism.

I LOVE this. It was quite entertaining for me. I f-ing hate those people who use the inane comments like, "why doesn't he use his money for the homeless veterans (or just insert your sad problem of choice here) instead of using it for x, y,z?" It is the most ridiculous statement. The person making that statement hasn't got a clue if that person HAS given money to homeless veterans (or sad problem of your choice) first of all and they also act as if they know what they money needs to go to better than anyone (but usually don't donate when they DO have money and certainly don't donate their time). Lastly, as the post states, it's not just one at a time so......aaarrrgggh.
