Who's got two thumbs, billions of dollars, and is hot off the presses from not helping at all to get 12 boys and their soccer coach out from a Thailand cave they were stuck in by creating an unwieldy submarine that Thai volunteers deemed unusable?

elon musk's thai cave submarine is... absurd. it doesn't make any goddamn sense pic.twitter.com/ntZo2Tghv1-- chris hooks (@cd_hooks) July 9, 2018
That's right folks, it's Elon Musk - and he ain't done yet. He has turned around quickly from this endeavor and since pledged to fix the Flint water contamination in Michigan.
Please consider this a commitment that I will fund fixing the water in any house in Flint that has water contamination above FDA levels. No kidding.-- Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 11, 2018
For now, reply to my tweet with ppm & ppb test results & will send someone to install a water filter. Creating email firstname.lastname@example.org, but I'm in China so that won't be working until tomorrow.-- Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 11, 2018
Which, hey! Is great! The man is certainly trying at least to do good with his Scrooge McDuck pool of coins. But will this new endeavor prove more fruitful than his submarine? Hopefully! Only time will tell. Until then, of course, Twitter as a whole will be roasting his ass ruthlessly.
1. No goddamn respect
I've seen like a hundred tweets thanking Elon Musk for helping save the Thai kids and not a single one thanking me even though we contributed the exact same amount to the rescue effort-- PeterNorway (@classiclib3ral) July 9, 2018
2. The store is also on Mars
PEOPLE: Elon Musk, please help Flint, Michigan!-- Mike Drucker (@MikeDrucker) July 11, 2018

3. If you joke about Elon, the boys will come after you
Elon Musk is making a big show of reaching for his wallet after the bill has been paid.-- John Levenstein (@johnlevenstein) July 9, 2018

elon musk fanboys would love nothing more than for him to build a huge rocket dildo and launch it directly into their ass-- ryan (@yeetztweetz) July 11, 2018
6. We should've never made Paypal a thing
I'm starting to believe we all live in a simulation and Elon Musk is a machine learning algorithm that's desperately trying to figure out how to get humans to like it.-- Danny O'Dwyer (@dannyodwyer) July 12, 2018

elon musk: "Billionaire" has become this century's N-Word. It's used to offend and diminish the recipient based on assumption and bias. No difference in the usage.
9. We're just like the rest of you, okay!

10. Yeah ok but don't forget he left the submarine there for them
The fact that Elon Musk's first instinct was to build a submarine instead of paying the wages and damages of the volunteers already successfully rescuing those kids is an example of how good innovation requires listening to users.-- Annalee (@leeflower) July 10, 2018
11. No I insist, enjoy the Natty Ice
