As E! Online reports, one TikTok user responded to the video with a comment criticising Grimes’ relationship with Musk.
“GRIMESSS. HOW ARE YOU DOING THIS AND ACTIVELY SLEEPING WITH THE MAN WHO [IS LITERALLY DESTROYING] THE PLANET AND HUMANITY,” the TikTok user wrote about Musk.
Grimes responded to the comment with a white heart emoji, writing: “How is he doing these things? His whole career is about making travel/house power etc. sustainable and green. It’s worth a deep dive.”
Another TikTok user asked Grimes in the comments section if she could “confirm” that Musk “is not a men’s rights activist? Some people online have been saying that & I’m concerned”.
Grimes responded: “He’s not. Def he’s been very immature at points on Twitter but for [example] the president of SpaceX is a woman, as is his right hand [person] at Neuralink etc.”
After another TikTok user asked Grimes who she was “trying to convince” by defending Musk from criticism, she replied: “I don’t need to convince anyone haha. I accept this discourse. I’m just rly close to it so sum times [sic] I try to correct the misconceptions haha.”
