Lilly Wachowski slams Elon Musk and Ivanka Trump over ‘Matrix’ red pill tweet

Los Angeles, May 18 (PTI) Filmmaker Lilly Wachowski, co-creator of “The Matrix” franchise, has hit back at Tesla CEO Elon Musk and US President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump for quoting her movie.

In a cryptic Twitter post over the weekend, Musk wrote “Take the red pill” with an emoji of a red rose.

Ivanka retweeted the post, writing “Taken”.

The tweet referred to the classic scene from the 1999 sci-fi thriller, in which Lawrence Fishburne’s Morpheus tells Keanu Reeves’ protagonist Neo that he has been living in a computer simulation and gives him a choice to take a blue pill and forget about the Matrix or take a red pill to learn the truth about the Matrix.

Wachowski was seemingly unhappy with the Twitter interaction between Musk and Ivanka, and shot back at the duo saying “F*** both of you.” She also responded with a tweet to support the Brave Space Alliance, which is the first Black-led, trans-led LGBTQ Center located on the South Side of Chicago.

Her sister, Lana Wachowski is writing and directing “The Matrix 4” which stopped production due to the coronavirus pandemic. PTI SHD BK BK
