Elon Musk's joke spree continued as he teased Democratic New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for criticizing his Twitter purchase. The Tesla CEO has become sort of a comedian with a series of laughable tweets referencing his controversial purchase. Some, including Ocioasne, don't find Musk's quips amusing.

"Tired of having to collectively stress about what explosion of hate crimes is happening because some billionaire with an ego problem unilaterally controls a massive communication platform," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. The multibillionaire responded by teasing her, telling the New Yorker, "Stop hitting on me, I'm really shy."

Musk joked about buying another mega-corporation to add to his inventory. The joke tweet has now gained over 4.6 million likes and 860,000 retweets. Texas Senator Ted Cruz egged on the interaction, retweeting the spat with a host of "fire" emojis.

Musk also retweeted a fake tweet that looks like it came from his account. "Now I'm going to buy McDonald's and fix all of the ice cream machines," it read. Newsweek fact-checked Musk's claim and discovered that the original recipe for Coca-Cola did have a form of cocaine in the drink.
