Lilly Wachowski and Red Pill What Is the Controversy Going Around

Lilly Wachowski, the director of Matrix series snapped on Ivanka Trump( daughter of Donald Trump) and billionaire Elon Musk.

The Tweet 

On Saturday, Elon Musk tweeted “Take The Red Pill” along with an emoji of a red rose. To this, Ivanka Trump, the daughter of President Donald Trump, replied” Taken!” by retweeting his tweet.

There is no known season why the tweet was made or in what reference it was to. Some say the tweet is related to Tesla’s factory being opened in California amidst the lockdown in which Elon got Trump’s support.

The line itself is from the 1994 movie Matrix. In the movie, Lawrence Fishburne plays Morpheus, who shows Thomas A. Anderson, also known as Leo played by Keanu Reeves, that he has been living in a simulation his entire life and offers him two pills, a red one and a blue one. The blue one would supposedly make him forget that he is in a simulation and he could go back to living and the red one would show him the truth about the simulation.

Later, the word “redpilling” was reffered to men’s activist rights.

Lilly Wachowski replied to the tweet to both of them with an NSFW( Not Safe For Work) message. She said ” Fuck both of you”. The tweet got more than 150000 likes.  She also replied with another tweet supporting the Brave Space Alliance.

Nether Elon Musk, not Ivanka Trump has responded back.
