Musk replied to a twitter critic online "Bill Gates is not my lover"
Tesla and SpaceX boss Elon Musk has responded after Bill Gates called his comments about the COVID-19 pandemic "outrageous."
In an interview on CNBC's "Squawk Box" Tuesday, the Microsoft co-founder criticized how Musk uses Twitter to voice opinions about the novel coronavirus outbreak, saying Musk's "positioning is to maintain a high level of outrageous comments."
"You know, he's not much involved in vaccines," Gates said. "He makes a great electric car. And his rockets work well. So, you know, he's allowed to say these things. I hope that, you know, he doesn't confuse areas he's not involved in too much."
Responding to one Twitter user who tagged him in a screenshot of the comment, Musk today replied: "Billy G is not my lover," seemingly a reference to Michael Jackson's hit song Billie Jean. He pinned the post to the top of his social media profile.
In a separate Twitter post Thursday, playing on criticism of "outrageous" comments, Musk wrote: "The rumor that Bill Gates & I are lovers is completely untrue." He replied to the post with a link to 1977 ballad "Sometimes When We Touch" by Dan Hill.
