August 1, 2022 01:42 PM


The chief executive of Tesla Elon Musk on Sunday tweeted Pakistan's most-famous meme to take a jibe at the US government's policy on weed. The meme featured famous Pakistani cricket fan, Sarim Akhtar, whose disappointed look during Pakistan vs Australia ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 match had gone viral after Asif Ali dropped a catch. Later on, Sarim's picture had become fodder for meme-makers.

The tweet portrayed a look of disappointment on the faces of weed users in the US when they are thrown behind bars. 

"People in the US in jail for weed while the government trades a Russian war criminal to free a women's basketball player in jail for weed," the meme read.

Elon, in his tweet, wrote: "Maybe free some people in jail for weed here too?"

The meme was about US Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) star Brittney Griner, who was arrested at Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport on February 17 after vape cartridges containing hashish oil were allegedly found in her baggage.
