Tesla's 'TechnoKing' founder and CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter on Tuesday and blamed the "woke mind virus" for making Netflix unwatchable after shares tank 20 percent.

"The woke mind virus is making Netflix unwatchable," Elon Musk said in a Twitter post.

Last December while speaking on the subject of wokeness to Babylon Bee, Musk coined the term "woke mind virus," and called it "arguably one of the biggest threats to modern civilization."

"Wokeness wants to make comedy illegal," Musk said, when asked for a further description. "Do we want a humorless society that is simply rife with condemnation, and hate? At its heart, wokeness is divisive, exclusionary and hateful. It basically gives mean people a shield to be cruel, armored in false virtue."

Further in the interview, Musk raised an eyebrow when the Babylon Bee suggested CNN was a "real news organization" and asked why he wasn't on there instead of talking to the writers of a satirical publication.

"I'm not perverted enough," he suggested.

Tesla and Space X CEO Elon Musk is at the center of national headlines after offering to buy Twitter for $43 billion. Musk and former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey publicly criticized Twitter's board of directors after the platform's announcement that it would be implementing a "poison pill" plan–which makes it difficult for Musk to increase his stake in the company past 15 percent. Currently, Musk owns just over 9 percent. Although Musk's offer has been met with severe obstacles and scrutiny, the freedom of speech warrior has yet to backdown.
