Musk responded to his mother’s tweet, saying, “Indeed.”


Musk has publicly stated that he likes to drink Diet Coke.

In June 2022, Musk wrote on Twitter: “Diet Coke is great, especially the cold version of the movie theater, with salt and butter popcorn.” He also wrote: “I don’t even care if it lowers my life expectancy.”
