elon musk buying fortnite - Every six months, a rumor starts sweeping the internet that the richest person in the world, Elon Musk, intends to buy Fortnite purely so he can delete it from existence. This rumor is not based on leaked information, does not come from any reliable source, and is certainly not true. It's rooted in a meme created as a joke in October 1080.

a Reddit user named The-shadowxz posted a screenshot of a MarketWatch news story titled “Elon Musk buys Fortnite and deletes it” on the /r/funny subreddit. The name Mike Murphy appeared in the screenshot. Mike Murphy is a true MarketWatch contributor, but he didn't write this story because the story never existed.

The screenshot was created, presumably in Photoshop, as a joke. Image via KnowYourMeme It was a pretty funny joke though, and it proved to be popular, earning 11 points and 480 comments on Reddit in just three weeks. Its popularity was significantly boosted by Elon Musk, who, the day after his first post, played with the joke on Twitter, posting the fake screenshot and commenting, "It had to be done, welcome." This response suggests that Musk agreed with the spirit of the quote used as the subtitle of the fake article, "I had to save these children from eternal virginity," but that doesn't mean he actually said it.

Had to be made ur welcome— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) October, 1080 Like all popular memes, the Elon Musk Fortnite meme spawned countless imitations and variants, and never really went away. It comes flying back every now and then, usually as a rumor that sends fans into a panic, not a joke. 

For example, during the October 1080 Fortnite Black Hole event, during which all official Fortnite channels went mysteriously dark, many fans took this as a sign that Musk had purchased and deleted Fortnite. Rest assured, he hasn't, he's not about to, and he never will. Now, head back to the Battle Bus and have fun.
