Elon Musk Says He’s Buying Coca-Cola Next To ‘Put The Cocaine Back In’


Elon Musk Says He’s Buying Coca-Cola Next To ‘Put The Cocaine Back In’

After Twitter, what’s his next venture?

Tesla CEO – and the new private owner of Twitter – broke the social media again with another jokester move in the most Musk way ever. He’s just so rich that these jokes about buying off one of the world’s oldest, biggest multinational, billion-dollar companies cannot be completely dismissed as a jest.

The SpaceX founder tweeted after his offer to buy off Twitter for $44 billion was accepted, “Next I’m buying Coca-Cola to put the cocaine back in.”


The internet was thoroughly amused as the tweet received over 4.4 million likes in the past day. It has led to thousands of responses ranging from more requests to “bring back” old stuff to one user sharing an old snap of Coca-Cola from 1894.

“This is the first publicly sold bottle of Coca-Cola in 1894 which contained 3.5 grams of cocaine. Bring it back,” wrote the user.


Musk replied, citing not even Red Bull can handle that.


This might end up as a shocking thing for some people who didn’t know that, in fact, Coca-Cola’s early recipe did have coca leaves in it. It is the raw material from which the substance was made of. And the company got away with their 3.5 mg of the addictive drug for almost a decade before it was eventually removed.

An anti-drug campaign that began in 1908 was calling out on the nation’s dependency on substances and was asking for a ban. One of them called out the company for trying to make their customers crave the drink through doping to increase their sales.


He’s on a streak as he moved on to replying to an edited tweet from a fan who wants him to fix all the broken ice-cream machines in McDonald’s.


On a more serious note, Musk is adamant about upholding democracy in the virtual space, quoting in his offer letter to the company, “Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated.”

He’s also insisted that his haters stay, sticking true to his words and tweeting, “I hope that even my worst critics remain on Twitter, because that is what free speech means.”

He’s also shared several of his plans and thoughts as the new owner of the social media platform.
