Grimes publicly called out her billionaire partner Elon Musk for online “hate” after he wrote on Twitter that “pronouns suck”.

Billionaire Tesla CEO Elon Musk was called out by his partner Grimes after he wrote an obscure tweet about pronouns on Saturday, July 25.

Musk stirred up controversy after tweeting “pronouns suck”, and angry responses began rolling in.

One Twitter user wrote: “Pretty disgusting to see from you. What’s so hard about calling someone a pronoun?

“It literally does absolutely nothing to you to call them it and it’s what they like to be referred as so why not just do it?”

Another said: “Either way you read this, it makes no sense.

“Either it’s thinly veiled transphobia, which while unfortunately unsurprising is still obviously s***ty; or Elon is just really taking a hard stand against the grammatical concept of pronouns, in which case… why?”

But one reply came from his partner, and mother of his child X Æ A-Xii, Grimes.

The singer, real name Claire Boucher, wrote in a now-deleted tweet: “I love you but please turn off ur phone or give me a [call].

“I cannot support this hate. Please stop this. I know this is not your heart.”

Elon Musk was recently blasted by Grimes’ mother over “men’s rights” tweet.

In May, Grimes’ mother attacked Elon Musk for “blaring men’s rights bulls**t” on Twitter just two weeks after the couple’s baby was born.

The singer’s mother Sandy Garossino was not impressed after Musk, known for union-busting practices at his companies, tweeted: “Take the red pill 🌹“.

“Taking the red pill” is a reference from The Matrix and is widely accepted as a description of alt-right radicalisation.

Garossino wrote on Twitter: “If your partner went through a challenging pregnancy and childbirth in the last two weeks… And you were over 16 years old, would you be blaring [men’s rights activist] bulls**t on Twitter right now?”
