Immediately after accepting the participation of Indian talent in the US tech sector, CEO of Tesla Motors Elon Musk has put out a photoshopped meme on new Twitter CEO Parag Agarwal.

The photoshopped meme displays Agrawal's face photoshopped onto former USSR dictator Joseph Stalin's body, in what some see as a criticism of the Indian-origin techie's previous comments about free speech on the social media platform.

The image also displays Parag Agrawal's predecessor Jack Dorsey standing beside him in the first image. The image portray Jack Dorsey in the role of Nikolay Yezhov, a close associate of the USSR dictator who was later killed under his orders.

In the next image put out by Elon Musk, we see a splash in the river as Dorsey goes astray.



Earlier this week, Jack Dorsey relinquished his post as Twitter CEO and Parag Agrawal, who served as its Chief Technology Officer, was promoted to head the company into the future. Following the announcement, Elon Musk said in a tweet, "The USA benefits greatly from Indian talent".


A lot of people have reacted to the meme that the SpaceX and Tesla CEO has put out on Parag Agrawal. many of them turned Musk's "Cyberwhistle" into a meme template while responding to his dig at the new Twitter CEO.

Musk not long ago urged his followers to buy the whistle for $50 instead of buying the "silly" polishing cloth launched by Apple. "Don't waste your money on that silly Apple Cloth, buy our whistle instead," he said.

Parag Agrawal is the youngest CEO among those leading the top 500 firms in the world. He studied at IIT Bombay and joined Twitter in 2011.
