While most social media users agreed with Mr. Musk’s opinion, some did not. One user wrote: “Amen! There’s nothing quite like butter that’s easy to spread on morning toast,” another user commented, “Butter’s expressionless expression is heartbreaking, but EM’s smile in the photo is more fatal . I spy once a day. “Have you seen the price of butter these days Elon?” Most can’t afford it! “commented a third.
On Sunday, the Tesla CEO slammed Instagram and described the social media platform as an “envy amplifier.” He hit out at the Meta-owned photo and video sharing platform in response to a video of Warren Buffet’s right-hand man, Charlie Munger, discussing the impact of greed and envy on the world .
The Tesla chief has been warning for several years now about the dangers of picture-perfect images posted by influencers and users on Instagram. Previously, he even called Instagram a “next-level thirst trap.”
During an interview with the Full Send podcast in August, Elon Musk revealed that he does have a private account, but stopped using it after discovering he was wasting his time and taking too many selfies. .
“Instagram is a next-level thirst trap. I found myself taking a lot of selfies, and I was like, ‘Why am I doing this?’ Then it was about getting more likes and taking selfies,” Musk said.
