Snapdeal CEO shares viral WhatsApp message: ‘Ceylon Musk might buy Sri Lanka.’

Several memes and jokes have been made about Elon Musk’s $43 billion offer for Twitter. One group of people was shocked to learn that the huge sum could wipe out an entire country’s debt.

On Tuesday, Sri Lanka, whose worst economic downturn since it became a country, defaulted on its $51 billion in external debt.

After running out of money from other countries to buy essential things, the island nation called the decision a “last resort,” according to the news agency AFP.

Elon Musk’s offer to buy Twitter for $43 billion, Snapdeal CEO Kunal Bahl says, is like Sri Lanka’s debt, which is a lot of money. Ceylon Musk can buy this and call himself Ceylon Musk. Bahl said that.

The joke about WhatsApp has been making the rounds on social media sites.

A lot of people were not amused by this. They said that one man’s ability to bail out an entire country said how much money people have and why that’s bad.

“Elon Musk is willing to pay $43 billion for Twitter.” It is hard for Sri Lanka to stay afloat because it has a $45 billion debt. One person on Twitter said, “There is something fundamentally wrong with the world.”

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, tried to take over Twitter on Thursday, saying that the network needs to be changed but admitting that his $43 billion offer may not work.

It was made public on Thursday that the wealthiest person in the world offered $54.20 per share, which would make the social network company worth $43 billion.
