Grimes Gets Super Defensive About Elon Musk in the Wake of His 'SNL' Backlash

ICYMI Saturday Night Live is making a big cry for attention by getting Elon Musk to host an upcoming episode. A bunch of cast members and regular folks out there aren't too pleased about the billionaire tech bro taking on the gig, and this seems to have partner Grimes on the defensive, as she was recently found defending Musk against the haters.

In Grimes' recent TikTok post, she fired back as some vocal critics of Musk — who is, after all, the father of her child. The TikTok clip finds Grimes "trying to figure out sum kinda sword dancing for new music videos." But the video was soon invaded by Musk critics, with one accusing Grimes of "ACTIVELY SLEEP1NG WITH THE MAN WHO LOTERALLY DESTROY THE PLANET AND HUMANITY."

Apparently this was too much for Grimes, who got all vocal in Musk's defence.

"How is he doing these things?" she replied. "His whole career is about making travel/house power etc. sustainable and green. It's worth a deep dive."

Another TikTok user asked Grimes if her partner was men's rights activist, and again she had troubles not responding, stating: "He's not. Def he's been very immature at points on Twitter but for ex the president of SpaceX is a woman, as is his right hand at Neuralink etc."

Not stopping there, Grimes continued to try to get her followers to drink the Elon Musk Kool-Aid.

"I don't need to convince anyone haha. I accept this discourse," she said. "I'm just rly close to it so sum times I try to correct the misconceptions haha."

You can check out her TikTok below — but you will have to then also watch her swordplay.
