Elon Musk reveals he sleeps with Two guns on his bedside table after firing Twitter employees

Elon Musk keeps two pistols on his nightstand when he sleeps.

Two firearms are kept at Elon Musk’s bedside table while he sleeps. Given the large number of people he’s been letting go recently, the billionaire uploaded a photo of what he loves to have around throughout the night on Sunday at 2 a.m.

Four empty Diet Coke cans were shown together with two weapons in the tweet. In a display case that also had the artwork Washington Crossing Delaware, two weapons that seemed to be revolvers that resembled movie props and a 19th-century handgun was on exhibit.

Later, the new owner of Twitter apologized, saying there was “no justification” for not having coasters for his preferred caffeine-free drink.

Now that both of the weapons in the image look to be replicas, his fans believe he is making fun of them, but they are also making fun of him for ostensibly being such a fan of the video game.

Musk said in the post titled “My Bedside Table” that he sleeps next to a precise group of items every night. A copy of George Washington’s flintlock handgun, which does not fire, may be seen in the photo, lying in a wooden box. The artwork of the first US president traversing the Delaware River by Emanuel Leutze is also shown.

A toy gun that seems to be a duplicate of the Diamond Back.357 revolver seen in the computer game Deus Ex: Human Revolution sits next to the flintlock pistol.

A water bottle, what looks like four empty cans of caffeine-free Coke, and what the New York Post claims to be a miniature set of the Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution, and “George Washington’s Rules of Civility and Decent Behaviour in Company and Conversation” by Applewood Books are also present.


Even while some people on Twitter found the image to be scary, many of them were quick to point out that the first pistol in the box was an antique, and the second gun was a toy gun copy from the video game Deus Ex. Elon Musk is a fan of “Deus Ex.

However, Musk has already tweeted about the video game Deus Ex, demonstrating his ardent support for it. He said that he “loves the original Deus Ex” in 2018 and tweeted a joke about the game in 2020. With his odd “bedside table” photo, he has apparently confirmed the game’s fanbase, according to his followers.
