Grimes Deletes Tweet Telling Elon Musk to 'Please Stop' After Tesla CEO Says 'Pronouns Suck'

Elon Musk was scolded on social media by his partner, the musician Grimes, after he sent a tweet that appeared to disparage the use of gender neutral pronouns.

In a tweet on Friday, the Tesla CEO added a red rose emoji to his Twitter name used as a symbol for the Democratic Socialists of America and wrote the message "pronouns suck."

Underneath the message, Grimes wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted: "I love you but please turn off ur phone or give me a dall. I cannot support hate. Please stop this. I know this isn't your heart (sic)."

A screen shot of her message has been reported by a number of media outlets.

In May, the couple announced the birth of their first child together, whom they named X Æ A-XII Musk.

Grimes, real name Claire Boucher, has said that they will opt for a gender-neutral parenting style, telling fans on YouTube in February: "I don't want to gender them in case that's not how they feel in their life."
