While many demonstrations against pension reform are still taking place in the four corners of France, the unpredictable boss of Tesla and Twitter went there with his little comment on the subject, which has been of concern to the French for a few weeks.

In response to a video posted on Twitter showing the streets of Paris taken over by demonstrators with street furniture on fire, Elon Musk reaffirmed his support for the reform defended by the French government. “The retirement age in France is too low. This is a real problem, ”he wrote on the platform this Saturday.

“France seems to like to have a good strike/riot once in a while,” the multibillionaire had also commented a few minutes earlier, in response to the video shared by Kim Dotcom, a computer scientist known for his illegal download site Megaupload, closed in 2012 .

“You are missing the point”

A comment that quickly made many Internet users react, annoyed to see the whimsical boss of Tesla and Twitter speak again about the social situation in France. “You are missing the point. If so, go through the democratic process and vote. Not by executive decree, “answered a user.

It would even seem that the French streamer Arkunir, who had already succeeded in November to “ratio” the multi-billionaire, has repeated his little feat. The Frenchman’s tweet, which contented himself with posting “a question mark”, indeed garnered more likes than Elon Musk’s tweet garnered. A new “humiliation” for the boss of the platform, which greatly amused Internet users.

This is not the first time that Elon Musk has spoken about pension reform in France. Last January, the boss of Tesla had already provided even more direct support for this reform, believing that “Macron [faisait] something difficult, but fair”. “The retirement age of 62 was set when life expectancy was much shorter. It is impossible for a small number of employees to support a large number of retirees,” he wrote on his Twitter account.
