AceShowbiz – Elon Musk has been strangely entangled in a social media feud with former “Jeopardy!” contestant Ken Jennings. The successful engineer and entrepreneur has been involved in an online back and forth with the so-called greatest-of-all-time champion of the TV game show after the latter made joke at Elon’s expense.
It all started when Ken weighed in on Elon’s announcement to reopen the Fremont, Calif., factory of his car manufacturer company Tesla despite the stay-at-home orders that still apply in the State. Challenging the law and the authorities, Elon tweeted on Monday, May 11, “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.”
Voicing his agreement with Elon’s decision, Ken posted a screenshot of Elon’s tweet and sarcastically commented, “Can’t believe I’m actually agreeing with Elon Musk, but he is absolutely correct: please arrest Elon Musk.”
Noticing this, Elon savagely clapped back at Ken by questioning his intelligence. “All other car companies are allowed to manufacture *except* Tesla, you knucklehead,” he responded to Ken’s comment, before adding, “No wonder you got crushed by a computer the size of a pizza box.”
Elon Musk claps back at ‘Jeopardy!’ contestant Ken Jennings for his ‘arrest’ joke.
Elon’s jab was referring to Ken’s 2011 performance in “Jeopardy!” man-vs.-machine tournament, during which he was soundly defeated by IBM supercomputer Watson.
Many have since come to Ken’s defense, with one slamming Elon’s pettiness, “man imagine being a billionaire during a pandemic and choosing to pick on a game show champion at 3:39 AM.” Another asked the point of the SpaceX founder comparing Ken’s brain to the size of a computer, “Why does the size of the computer matter?”
The second commenter sarcastically added in another tweet, “So glad you’re prioritizing dunking on people who criticize you on Twitter rather than looking after your newborn and girlfriend at 3:30 a.m. You’re such a manly man… Did you find a mirror to look at yourself flex your pecs after you tweeted this?”
“This is another lie,” another slammed Elon. Someone else also suggested that the former boyfriend of actress Amber Heard was “lying” as writing, “Elon – Here’s a tip. When you lie about something that’s easily verified in 2 minutes, it makes people wonder what else you’re lying about.”
