Punchy and fearless fellow hacks at Vice’s Motherboard site have exposed a pioneering inventor and engineer, Elon Musk, as a massive sexist… for following precisely zero women on Twitter.

In this “not the Onion” article, a writer for the site launched a Pulitzer-worthy investigation and found out that 21 of the gendered accounts that Musk follows are men, and not one is a woman. He follows only 55 accounts in total.
This surely must mean he has a problem with women, right?
To prove the case further, tech news site Motherboard also reminded us about the time Musk didn’t add Talulah Riley’s Twitter handle in the tweet below — prompting a question: “Would it kill you to @-mention her, Elon?”
Some of the future episodes of Westworld feature my ex. Talulah does a great job of playing a deadly sexbot 🙂

The founder of Tesla Motors tried to put out the fire by claiming he uses Twitter for getting the news. But if we know one thing about rabid social justice warriors, it’s that they will never give up.
