Grimes called out her boyfriend Elon Musk publicly after the Tesla mogul tweeted that ‘pronouns suck’.
Musk, 49, seemed to be on a mocking spree as he added a red rose emoji to his Twitter name and his tweets – an emoji that is used as a symbol for the Democratic Socialists of America.
On Friday, the multi-billionaire tweeted: ‘[rose emoji] Twitter sucks. I bet no one on [rose emoji] Twitter even *has* a guillotine! Poseurs!’
However, he stirred up further controversy later in the evening, when Musk tweeted: ‘Pronouns suck.’
YouTuber CrankGameplays replied: ‘F*** you’ before writing: ‘So is not respecting someone’s pronouns and the way they identify lol’, while journalist Molly Lambert wrote: ‘you/you are so stupid.’
But the most pointed reply came from Elon’s girlfriend and mother of his baby son, Grimes.
In a now-deleted tweet, the 32-year-old said she ‘cannot support this hate’.
The Oblivion singer, real name Claire Boucher, responded: ‘I love you but please turn off ur phone or give me a dall [sic].
‘I cannot support this hate. Please stop this. I know this is not your heart.’
The post was deleted soon afterwards.
Grimes and Elon have been dating for over two years, making their surprise debut as a couple at the 2018 Met Gala.
On 4 May this year, they welcomed their first child together, and attracted much attention due to the totally standard name they bestowed on the tot – X AE A-XII.
Amazingly, this is a simplified version of the baby’s original name – X Æ A-12 – which had to be tweaked due to Californian laws on having no symbols or numbers in birth names.
But with Grimes’ latest tweet, it seems there could be trouble in paradise – especially seeing as the singer’s family is just as annoyed with Elon’s tweets.
Back in May, Grimes’s mum Sandy Garossino was infuriated after her son-in-law tweeted: ‘Take the red pill’ – a phrase used to used to signal a right-wing political awakening, as well as being used in forums for ‘men’s rights’.
In a now-deleted tweet, Sandy 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 blaring MRA bulls*** on Twitter right now?’
And that wasn’t all, as Mama Grimes went on to like a number of tweets mocking Musk.
Musk – worth an estimated £63 billion – has already sparked controversy this week after he suggested that a government stimulus package ‘is not in the best interests of the people imo’ during the pandemic.
