2022’s mystery/crime sequel Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, is available to stream on Netflix and is already gaining attention on social media. While its plot is undoubtedly intriguing, there’s more brewing beneath the surface, according to social media users. The film follows the journey of tech billionaire Miles Bron, who invites his friends for a getaway to his private Greek island. But when someone is found dead, detective Benoit Blanc is in charge of the case. To social media users, that sounds a lot like Twitter CEO Elon Musk.
Many have come to believe that Miles Bron is a parody of Elon Musk. To them, the rich and eccentric billionaire looks like the boss of Twitter. Many even shared their thoughts on the social media platform. One of the film’s quotes, which many consider to be the best: “It’s a dangerous thing to confuse speaking without thinking with telling the truth,” is also something that users believe is directed at Elon Musk.
One Twitter user wrote: “There is an Elon Musk documentary on Netflix called Glass Onion, and I can’t recommend it highly enough.”
“We watched ‘Glass Onion’ the other night. Overall great movie. I especially liked that the obvious Elon Musk-like character turned out to be a fraud who took the work of others and repackaged it as his genius. It’s like everyone gets it,” another tweet read.

Another user tweeted: “I watched this movie last night about Elon Musk and Andrew Tate called Glass Onion. Great stuff! The best quote from the movie!
If you’re wondering if Miles Bron is indeed a parody, writer and director Rian Johnson has the answer, Forbes reported. It’s both yes and no. Glass Onion was developed and shot in 2021. That was long before Musk’s recent headlines. However, Johnson had mentioned that Miles Bron was a compilation of more tech billionaires, not just one particular guy. The director has now acknowledged Musk’s parallels. Johnson had expressed surprise at how his film somehow predicted Musk’s recent behavior.
