Welp. It looks like SpaceX founder Elon Musk actually went into a barbershop and said, “Give me the Macklemore haircut.”
On Thursday, the billionaire was spotted after landing in Miami sporting a hairdo that can only be described as “terminally divorced.” Musk was on his way to attend Art Basel Miami, a hoity-toity art fair, with his son in tow, The Daily Mail reports.
Social media was quick to jump on the meme fodder, with many instantly roasting the 50-year-old Tesla CEO for getting a haircut that’s a bit out of date even for Gen Z TikTok influencers.
Musk’s hairdo even spurred comparisons to cartoon characters:
As well as iconic movie characters:
And even moments in history:
“He’s a Peaky Blinder now,” another user joked.
Many made more comparisons to a famous Gary Oldman role, with one user saying, “He looks like Zorg from ‘The Fifth Element.’”
It’s a bold choice for the richest man in the world. You’d think he’d be able to afford a haircut that’s more, um, flattering. As with all bad haircuts, though, it’ll grow out, Elon. Don’t worry.
Unless, of course, it is just a hairpiece. If that’s the case, he might want to swap it out from something that’s a bit less Big Mid-Life Crisis Energy.
