Elon Musk responds after Tfue buys a Tesla for ridiculous reason

Professional Fortnite player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has got the attention of Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk, after the popular streamer purchased a Tesla vehicle for a hilarious reason.

Back in October 2018, Tfue sent out a Tweet asking Elon Musk if he could help him “get better internet”, to which the mogul simply replied “Yes”.

Surprised that he was even given a response, the Fortnite pro pledged to buy a Tesla, simply because Musk replied to him.

Fans presumed that Tfue was only joking, as months went by with no news of a newly purchased Tesla.

However, on January 14, Tfue proved that he was a man of his word, posing next to his brand new Tesla Model X, the car manufacturer’s flagship SUV model.

Elon Musk took notice too, despite Tfue not being on his following list, the Fortnite player’s Tweet quickly got his attention.

Tfue wasn’t done there however, as he had a follow-up request – this time much more ambitious than helping him get better internet.

He asked Musk if he had any spare “unusable first stage rockets” just lying around, that Tenney might be able to buy for his warehouse, presumably for entertainment purposes.

Elon Musk hasn’t responded publicly to Tfue’s request, and it also appears that he is still having internet issues too – but at least he has a Tesla now.
