Elon Musk Joins Critics of “Barbie” Film’s Feminist Themes: Calls Out “Patriarchy” References

Greta Gerwig’s latest film, “Barbie,” has stirred both excitement and controversy among moviegoers. While it continues to perform well at the box office, some conservative figures have expressed disapproval of its portrayal of feminism and themes challenging traditional patriarchal norms.

Joining the ranks of critics, tech mogul Elon Musk appeared to take a jab at the film in a recent tweet. Responding to a user’s meme, Musk playfully suggested a drinking game: “If you take a shot every time Barbie says the word ‘patriarchy,’ you will pass out before the movie ends.”

The film has faced criticism from other quarters as well, with Republican Florida congressman Matt Gaetz and his wife Ginger calling for a boycott. Ginger Gaetz took to Twitter to express her concerns about the film’s purported neglect of family values and its portrayal of gender dynamics.

Elon Musk’s views on certain social issues have aligned with conservative figures in the past. The billionaire entrepreneur has been vocal about his free-speech advocacy and has shown support for individuals whose views have been banned or restricted on social media platforms.

This isn’t the first time Musk has waded into contentious discussions around gender and social issues. His latest comment on “Barbie” adds to the ongoing debate over the film’s feminist themes and portrayal of male fragility. As the film continues to generate buzz, its critics and supporters continue to engage in spirited discussions about its broader societal implications.

Political Showdown: Tristan Tate Silences TikTok-Dancing Democrat, Defends Elon Musk’s Genius

Tristan Tate recently shut down a 20-year-old Democrat on social media who referred to Elon Musk as a child. In a tweet exchange that quickly gained attention, Tate highlighted Musk’s contributions to humanity while dismissing the criticism from someone he referred to as a “literal child” who dances on TikTok.

The Twitter conversation began when Harry Sisson, a 20-year-old Democrat, posted a tweet calling out Elon Musk’s behavior, stating, “This guy is a 52-year-old man yet he behaves like a child. I mean it’s just embarrassing at this point.” Sisson’s comment seemingly aimed to criticize Musk for his actions and public persona.

However, Tate wasted no time in responding to the tweet, highlighting Musk’s significant achievements in advancing humanity’s prospects of becoming a multi-planetary species. He pointed out that dismissing Musk as a child was unwarranted, especially coming from someone Tate referred to as a “literal child” who partakes in TikTok dances.

“Single handedly transforming humanity into an multi planetary species, called a child by a literal child who dances on TikTok because he sometimes makes jokes. The internet is hilarious.”

Tate’s response not only defended Musk but also aimed to highlight the irony in Sisson’s criticism. By contrasting Musk’s groundbreaking work with Sisson’s social media activities, Tate emphasized the stark difference in their contributions to society.
