“Finland is cool too”: PM Sanna Marin responds to Elon Musk’s joke on Twitter

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has become the latest global figure to mock Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin.

The 36-year-old has been widely convicted of visiting a nightclub after coming into contact with someone positive for COVID-19 over the weekend.

Marin has apologized for his judgment but has become a symbol of mockery online, including in the United States.

Sunday, Musk tweeted a photo to his 66 million followers, joking about Marin’s actions.

The photo featured a meme of two young adults at a nightclub, alongside the captions; “So what do you do for a living? I am the Prime Minister of Finland.”

The tweet has been shared nearly 18,000 times and liked by over 244,000 Twitter users.

Musk is often known for his eccentric activity on Twitter, and Finnish analysts are not surprised that Marin’s shares have gone viral around the world.

Elon Musk then responded to another user on Twitter, adding that Marin “looks cool.”

The Prime Minister of Finland did not seem affected by the joke and responded to Musk herself, write on twitter that “Finland is cool too”.

“A Nordic welfare state that wants to be climate neutral by 2035 … [and the ] the happiest people in the world live in Finland, ”Marin said on Monday.

Finland was crowned happiest country in the world for the fourth consecutive year in 2021.
