It’s not the first time Musk’s fondness for the tasteless symbol has sparked a backlash.

Last year, he had to explain that his use of the colorless emoji in response to then-CEO Parag Agrawal signaled that he thought Agrawal’s claim that bots compromise less than 5 percent of the network was “bs.”

The company provided the tweet as part of a lawsuit arguing that Musk had “breached his obligations” under the merger deal, which was written when he agreed to take it.
