This week, news broke that 51-year-old billionaire Elon Musk secretly had twins with executive Shivon Zilis, 36, just a few weeks before he had a child with then-partner Grimes.

Obviously, this shocked people, considering how public his relationship with Grimes was at the time. Elon — who's also recently been accused of sexual misconduct — addressed the news with a tweet about underpopulation, a topic he's recently been tweeting about.

"Doing my best to help the underpopulation," Elon tweeted Wednesday. "A collapsing birth rate is the biggest danger civilization faces by far."

As if that tweet wasn't bizarre enough, things got stranger. Nick Cannon — who has eight children with five different women — chimed in.

"Right there with you my brother!"

Elon then — in a now-deleted tweet — responded, "Congrats on your family! We must expand scope and scale of consciousness for civilization to flourish and understand nature of universe. Consciousness resides most strongly in humans; therefore, we need more people!"

People were like, "?????" at the whole exchange:

Like, imagine seeing this exchange with zero context, like, five years ago. Yeah, 2022 is 2022-ing.
