Skip to comments.Elon Musk compares Bill Gates to controversial pregnant man emoji in tweet mocking the Microsoft billionaire's belly as a 'b*ner killer'

Musk, the world's richest person and chief executive of the American company, posted a follow-up image in response to the Friday post of six hooded figured captioned 'shadow ban council reviewing Tweet.'
The lowbrow joke could further infuriate woke Twitter staffers angered by Musk's ongoing bid to buy the firm after saying he'd take a hardline stance supporting free speech.
That is because the pregnant man emoji is aimed at being inclusive to transgender people - with Musk frequently taking aim at what he sees as woke overreach, while repeatedly insisting that he bears no ill-will towards the LGBTQ community.
Many have moaned about Musk, accusing him of being a transphobe over a 2020 tweet mocking pronouns, as well as a bully. But others have said he is the breath of fresh air that American needs against big tech censorship.
Responses to the richest man's jab at the fellow billionaire's expense garnered mixed reactions on the platform:
'How is this man such a savage hahahaha,' wrote one user.

Lol that’s savage.
That’s a serious hit on Gates. Love it.
Wow, how nice of whomever created it to make a Bill Gates emoji!
I’ll toss my cookies fast instead.
That’s what gates gets for shorting Tesla. LOL
Musk was not making fun of Gates. He was merely providing a public service for guys who have to stand up in public after having an erotic daydream.
I gotta say I’m starting to like this guy more and more
Elon. Racks me up. I hate the idea of electric cars but would buy one if I could hang out with Elon for a few beers.
Unshowered, smelly nerd Gates would have been an incel his entire life if it weren’t for his money. I’m actually surprised he hasn’t chopped it off and come out as trans yet.
Elon really posted that on Twatter?
I like Musk ..
It's still early but I think Elon Musk is heading down that same path.
It’s weird when paunchy and pasty old guys still insist on tucking in their 12 dollar Walmart polo shirts. For god’s sake man, pull it out and buy a better fitting quality shirt
A picture of Dr. Richard (Dickless) aka “Rachel” Levine will deflate it faster.
Boy is this making rounds. lol
I saw a cartoon about this earlier that was way too dirty to post here.
So apparently Bill Gates hit up @elonmusk to discuss “philanthropy on climate change” but Elon asked if he still had a half billion dollar short position on $TSLA.
Bill said he hasn’t closed it out, so Elon told him to get lost. No idea if this is true lol pic.twitter.com/iuHkDG3bAd— Whole Mars Catalog (@WholeMarsBlog) April 22, 2022
Yeah, but I didn’t leak it to NYT. They must have got it through friends of friends.
I heard from multiple people at TED that Gates still had half billion short against Tesla, which is why I asked him, so it’s not exactly top secret.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 23, 2022
