Twitter boss Elon Musk has slammed the new “Barbie” movie and warned social media users about the film’s “woke” agenda.
Musk joined the chorus of critics who have panned the “Barbie” movie.
In response to another user’s Twitter post, Musk blasted the movie’s incessant carping about the “patriarchy.”
The movie has racked up enormous numbers at the box office.
Over its debut weekend, “Barbie” raked in $155 million domestically.
But its “woke” agenda has catalyzed harsh reactions from conservatives.
Musk agrees and wasn’t shy about slamming the film.
He warned moviegoers not to play drinking games while watching “Barbie.”
“[If] you take a shot every time Barbie says the word ‘patriarchy’ you will pass out before the movie ends,” Musk declared.

Musk has long been a vocal opponent of the radical “woke” agenda.
As Slay News previously reported, Musk has called the woke mind virus “arguably one of the biggest threats to modern civilization.”
In 2021, he referenced it in relation to the satirical site The Onion, saying, “It’s just seems to have been in recent years affected by the woke mind virus.
“That just makes everything less funny.
“Woke mind virus is a world without humor.”
“Wokeness basically wants to make comedy illegal,” he continued.
“At its heart, wokeness is divisive, exclusionary, and hateful.”
Director Greta Gerwig, who also co-wrote “Barbie,” told Vogue that she wrote an abstract poem about Barbie and compared it to the Apostles’ Creed, the affirmation of certain core Christian beliefs.
“Ken was invented after Barbie to burnish Barbie’s position in our eyes and in the world,” Gerwig said.
“That kind of creation myth is the opposite of the creation myth in Genesis.”
One of the characters in the film gives a speech in which she complains, “It is literally impossible to be a woman. …
“You have to answer for men’s bad behavior, which is insane, but if you point that out, you’re accused of complaining. … never forget that the system is rigged. …
“I’m just so tired of watching myself and every single other woman tie herself into knots so that people will like us.”
