The SpaceX founder quips that he will give the online encyclopaedia a huge sum of money if they are willing to change its name to something vulgar for at least one year.

AceShowbiz - Elon Musk joked about giving Wikipedia $1 billion - but only if they changed their name to something crude for one year "minimum." The billionaire businessman, 52, posted on his social media site X - formerly Twitter - to offer the open-collaborative online encyclopaedia megabucks, but the catch is they'd have to change their name to D***ipedia."

"I will give them a billion dollars if they change their name to D***ipedia," the Tesla and SpaceX owner wrote. He replied, "One year minimum. I mean, I'm a not fool lol," when one user pointed out that they could change the name back after they banked the cash.

In 2019, Musk asked Wikipedia to remove the word "investor" from his page. The Tesla CEO claimed that he does "basically zero investing" which is why he asked the owners of the site to remove the false fact. He tweeted at the time, "Just looked at my wiki for 1st time in years. It's insane! Btw, can someone please delete 'investor.' I do basically zero investing. (sic)"

And his profile was soon updated with the term "business magnet," "as requested by Elon Musk." However, it currently reads, "Elon Reeve Musk is a business magnate and investor. Musk is the founder, chairman, CEO and chief technology officer of SpaceX; angel investor, CEO, product architect and former chairman of Tesla, Inc.; owner, chairman and CTO of X Corp.; founder of the Boring Company; co-founder of Neuralink and OpenAI; and president of the Musk Foundation."
