When tech billionaire Elon Musk isn’t being blasé about the worldwide crisis, he’s stealing jokes to amuse his 32.9 million Twitter followers. Over the weekend, our darkest timeline’s Tony Stark got caught and called out for stealing a joke from stand-up comedian Morgan Murphy.
Here’s Musk’s tweet:

When you have literally everything that money can buy, but you lack humor. That’s the beauty of the internet, you can steal everything, even a joke.— Emma 🌙 (@MynameisEmma94) April 5, 2020
Murphy reached out to Musk once more with another picture of Jack, to which he responded.
