Maye Musk's recent tweet has garnered more than 156.5K likes and 13.3K retweets. She went to share a letter which was signed by the Director of Information Management at the University of Pretoria in South Africa.

Maye Musk is known to share throwback pictures of Elon Musk on social media. Previously, she shared an image of young Elon Musk repairing an old 1978 BMW back in 1995.

Tesla and SpaceX CEO later replied that he could not afford to pay for a mechanic, so he did it himself using junkyard parts. "Could not afford to pay for repairs, so I fixed almost everything on that car from parts in the junkyard. Ironically, that's me replacing broken side window glass. The circle is complete lol," Musk replied.
