“The Matrix” filmmaker Lilly Wachowski did not take well to tweets from Tesla chief Elon Musk and Ivanka Trump.
Elon Musk had tweeted cryptically “Take the red pill” and Ivanka Trump replied “Taken!”
Wachowski replied to Ivanka and wrote “F*ck both of you”
Fuck both of you

Per TheWrap, in right-wing internet parlance, “taking the red pill” has become slang for taking on conservative political views.
The tweet comes as Musk has begun espousing more anti-regulatory views, threatening to restart Tesla’s factories in California in defiance of the state’s mandated closures of businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.
He has also threatened to pull Tesla’s headquarters out of California altogether, calling the stay-at-home orders “fascist.”
Lily Wachowski came out as trans in 2016.
