Elon Musk, the owner of social media platform X and space engineering firm SpaceX, commented on Rockstar Games' franchise after the GTA 6 trailer was revealed earlier today. He disclosed not liking Rockstar's immensely successful franchise for a rather interesting reason.

Dan (@KettlebellLife), an X employee and kettlebell influencer, posted that he's never played any of the Grand Theft Auto titles. In response, Elon Musk (@elonmusk) stated that he tried playing Grand Theft Auto 5 but "just couldn't do it" because it required shooting cops in the opening scene.

Musk was alluding to the game's prologue, in which players must dispatch a lot of cops who are attempting to stop Michael, Trevor, and their group from robbing the Ludendorff bank. Naturally, Grand Theft Auto fans were left dumbfounded by his comment and replied to him. Prominent insider Ben (@videotechuk_) responded:
