With this photo on the iPhone, Elon Musk was of course no longer able to maintain his Twitter abstinence: the Tesla boss left the picture with Pope Francis relatively uncommented, but his pride in this private audience can clearly be seen. He just captioned the picture: “Honored to meet Pontifex yesterday.”
Also present at the photo shoot in the Vatican: Four of Elon Musk’s five children from his marriage to his first wife Justine Wilson: Griffin, Damian, Kai and Saxon.
It is somewhat unclear why Elon Musk wanted the meeting: after all, the US tycoon had claimed that he was an atheist. Perhaps the not-Twitter-owner had something to confess? Or did he want to sell Tesla limousines to the Swiss Guard as official vehicles?
In any case, the US billionaire’s suit provided the topic of conversation for the Twitteria: the trousers were clearly far too long – and the jacket seemed quite tight around the hips. Elon Musk responded to the criticism that immediately surfaced: “My suit is tragic.”
