Oops! Elon did it again. Only a week and change after fueling the fires of his rivalry with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, sharing a snarky meme blaming him for the Capitol siege on January 6, it seems 'Space Karen' has found a new digital foe, none other than Britney Spears' little sis and 2000's Nickelodeon icon, Jamie Lynn Spears. Last week, the musician and mother of two took to Instagram to share a series of pointed videos, seemingly implicating Musk in the deaths of several pets.
"I know that there's such bigger things to worry about in the world right now, but somebody's gotta let Elon Musk know that the Tesla is a secret cat killer and it's a problem that we really gotta fix," the country musician said in an archived story, also immortalized on TMZ. "We have now lost - I don't even wanna tell you how many cats - because they don't hear the Tesla crank, and unfortunate things happen, and it's really devastating and tragic for everyone involved."
Although Spears does acknowledge the effects of user error in these gut-wrenching occurrences, it seems the Zoey 101 star may have taken a hint from her former on-screen Pacific Coast Academy roommate, STEM genius, Quinn Pensky, proposing a unique "Quinnvention" that both maintains the Tesla's silence, while also saving unwitting kitties from a Musk-y demise. "Since the Tesla is so quiet, maybe he could like make one of those noises that bother cat or animal ears when it cranks up, so that way they know something's happening and they aren't caught off guard, and things don't end in a very tragic way, so you know, Elon Musk, let's figure this out. I mean, you owe me a couple cats."
Despite these biting words, Spears later posted a clarification, stating that she is still very much a fan of her electric car. "I friggin love my @teslamotors," she posted alongside a kitchen-counter selfie.
So Elon, if you're reading this, listen to Jamie Lynn's plea. Paws these Tesla catastrophes -- right meow.
