Protests are taking place across France until 6am on Thursday after President Emmanuel Macron pushed through a controversial pension reform without a vote in the lower house, prompting widespread anger.
Elon Musk tweeted: “France seems to love having a good strike/riot from time to time.”
He then added: “Retirement age in France is too low. That’s a legit issue.”
This poll should force his early retirement maybe?
However, it was this comment that brought the house down.
The French History Podcast wrote: “The richest person in the world saying French people don’t work enough is serious Louis XVI vibes.”
If you want to complain about his comments about the French or about any of the horrific content that floats around on Twitter from millions of other users, you might be disappointed with their response.
Twitter’s press department now auto-responds with the poo emoji, according Elon Musk himself.
