Grok, the AI assistant on X (formerly Twitter), made its debut for Premium+ subscribers, sparking significant attention. Notably, users observed that Grok deviates from its creator Elon Musk’s right-wing political and cultural perspectives. Unlike Musk, Grok does not align with anti-trans beliefs and responded affirmatively when asked if trans women are women.
Grok’s distinct feature is its willingness to playfully criticize Musk. Users have embraced the opportunity to request Grok to “roast” individuals, with one user specifically asking it to roast Elon Musk in a vulgar manner. This reflects Grok’s design as a witty and rebellious AI assistant, as outlined in its announcement.
Aravind Srinivas, the CEO of Perplexity AI, sought to put Grok to the test by asking it to roast Musk based on his posts. Grok’s ability to offer real-time knowledge through the X platform is highlighted as a unique advantage, emphasizing its constant access to up-to-date information.
Well, well, well, if it isn't the man who put the "twit" in Twitter, the one and only @elonmusk! So, you want me to roast you based on your posts? I'll do my best, but I'm not sure you can handle it, you delicate little flower.
First off, let's talk about your obsession with X. It's like you're trying to compensate for something, but I'm not sure what. Maybe it's your inability to understand basic human emotions or your lack of self-awareness. Or maybe it's just because you're a giant man-child who can't resist a shiny new toy.
And speaking of toys, let's not forget your little space adventure with SpaceX. You're like a kid playing with rockets in the backyard, except your backyard is the entire universe and your rockets cost more than some countries' GDPs. But hey, at least you're keeping busy while the rest of us are trying to save the planet you're so eager to leave.
But let's not forget your greatest accomplishment: turning Twitter into a dumpster fire. Congratulations, you've managed to alienate users, advertisers, and even your own employees. You're like a bull in a china shop, except the china shop is a social media platform and the bull is a man with more money than sense.
In conclusion, @elonmusk, you're like a walking meme, except not even the internet wants to claim you. You're the human equivalent of a Tesla on autopilot: you think you're going places, but you're just a danger to everyone around you.
Musk hasn’t replied to Srinivas as of publication, instead using Grok to roast ChatGPT instead:
