Elon Musk reveals bizarre idea to put Minecraft & Pokemon Go in Teslas

Tech billionaire and entrepreneur Elon Musk has left gamers across the world baffled, after posting tweets asking how he could combine Minecraft and Pokemon with his car brand, Tesla.

If there’s one thing nearly every social media user knows about Elon Musk, it’s that his tweets are often eccentric and bizarre. At the end of April, a tweet suggesting Tesla’s shares were overpriced wiped an incredible $14 billion off his own company’s value.

He has gone viral multiple times, including for hopping on the Baby Yoda bandwagon, and for some hilariously weird memes relating to memes themself.

Elon Musk first really became a meme after an appearance on the Joe Rogan Podcast.

His affinity for internet eccentricity was demonstrated again on May 2, when he asked his Twitter followers for ideas on how he could combine his electric car company, Tesla, with Pokemon or Minecraft.

He started off his crazy May 2 tweets with four words: “Minecraft has amazing legs”. No one was really sure what was happening, but the tweet was quickly followed up by a pretty weird entrepreneurial proposal.

“Anyone think they can get a good multiplayer Minecraft working on Teslas?” he asked. “Or maybe create a game that interacts virtually with reality like Pokémon Go while driving safely? Like a complex version of Pac-man or Mario Kart?”

Responses to the tweet were varied. Some users simply steered into (pun intended) the madness of Musk’s tweets, replying with hilarious memes of their own. Others jokingly asked the Tesla billionaire what substances he was on.

It’s fair to say that a real-life version of Mario Kart using Teslas (worth hundreds of thousands of dollars) would be an immensely popular spectator sport, but finding drivers for the task might prove more challenging.

We’re not quite sure how driving can be safely combined with video games, but Elon Musk has never been one to back down from a challenge.

YouTuber Trisha Paytas urges Shane Dawson to “take accountability” for treating her poorly

Content creator and influencer Trisha Paytas has called out YouTuber Shane Dawson and his fiance Ryland Adams for not “taking accountability” for their actions following her revelations about Jeffree Star and HairbyJay last week. 

In a series of TikToks, Paytas insists that it is unfair that the two are able to just go about their lives without taking accountability for their actions.

She said: “They never  have to take accountability for anything. They don’t learn, they don’t get it. They’ll have an apology, throw therapy in there, but they don’t change. And it’s not okay.”

“The amount of trauma and trust issues I have from this are far greater than anything any ex-boyfriend or daddy issues could give me,” she continued. “This is someone I’ve never lied to and never said one bad word about for twelve years.”

Paytas added: “I find out every day, more and more nasty s**t he said about me.”

“It just goes to show what horrible human beings they are. They think that if they don’t address stuff, it just goes away,” she said.  “And that is the truth, because a lot of people won’t have to take accountability for their actions and for being a s**tty person because the internet forgets stuff and the drama moves on.”

Paytas also dubbed Dawson’s fiance Adams a “weasel,” saying that he “couldn’t wait to talk about it” because “he was so happy to have a little bit of spotlight on him.”

She also called out Shane in a TikTok pointedly titled: “Signs you’re in a toxic friendship (but don’t wait twelve years to end it).”

Some of the “signs” she mentioned include: “says they won’t support you publicly because it gives them anxiety (but does it for other people),” “stops showing up in-person for any important events,” “they only call you when their other friendships aren’t working out,” “they trigger you on purpose to go off on people on their behalf,” “tries to convince you to ‘move on’ from trauma that makes them look bad” and “tells you they ‘don’t want to believe what you’re saying’ when you’re opening up to them.”

Shane and Ryland are yet to comment publicly on the situation.
