Elon Musk responds to strange AI pictures of him as baby

Elon Musk responds to strange AI pictures of him as baby

The weird image has captured Twitter's imagination, with Elon Musk even commenting on it

Elon Musk has responded after a bizarre AI image of himself went viral.

The photo, which was uploaded to Twitter, shows Musk as a baby complete with a wide-collar shirt and his trademark haircut.

However, the strange pic isn’t the only reason why the billionaire has been hitting the headlines in recent times.

After Musk took over Twitter in late 2022, the social media platform is now reportedly worth a third of what he originally paid.

Purchased by the Space X founder for an astronomical fee of $44 billion (£35bn), the site is now reportedly worth $15 billion (£12bn) - even with those verification subscriptions.

The new estimates came from Fidelity, who have also dramatically reduced the value of their stake in the brand to just 44 percent.

It comes after months of erratic decision-making by Musk, with constant changes to the site and a rise in right-wing content.

The changes have led some advertisers to break ties with Twitter, causing the platform to make just 59 percent of its ad revenue ($88m) compared to last year - according to The New York Times.

The AI-generated image shows a baby Elon Musk in a wide-collar shirt along with his trademark haircut.

Despite this, Musk has been making headlines, not because of his brand but because of an AI-generated baby picture.

Understandably, the strange image has gone viral on Twitter and was shared by parody account @alifarh79 earlier this week.

The pic shows a fictional infant version of the billionaire with chubby cheeks standing in a modern-looking living room.

The post was captioned: “BREAKING: Elon Musk was reportedly working on some anti-aging formula but it got way out of hand.”

It even gained the attention of Musk himself, who was eager to join in the jokes around the AI image.

Referring to a non-existent serum, he jokingly replied: “Guys, I think I maybe took too much.”

Fans also enjoy the banter surrounding the fake baby pic, with other users also joining in.

One quipped: "Now he has enough time to get to Mars," while another compared the image to Boss Baby.

Not everyone was so thrilled by the computer-generated photo though, with one tweet saying that the picture was kind of creepy.

They wrote: “Yeah, sometimes the uncanny valley vibes are too strong with AI art.”

However, this hasn't stopped one Twitter account, @elonmuskids, being dedicated to generating AI images of 'Musk's children’ who are allegedly being raised ‘colonise Mars’.
