Elon Musk says he’ll donate $1 billion to Wikipedia if they change their name to ‘D*ckipedia’ for 1 year

  • October 23, 2023

Elon Musk has extended an offer to donate $1 billion to Wikipedia on the condition that the free online encyclopedia alters its name to “D**kipedia” and maintains this change for a minimum of one year.

This proposition emerged in response to criticism from Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, who accused Musk of censoring critics of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. When a Twitter user encouraged Wikipedia to contemplate Musk’s proposal, he introduced another lighthearted condition, remarking, “@Wikipedia, Do it! You can always change it back after you collect.” Musk responded to this suggestion with a jest, stating, “One year minimum. I mean, I’m not a fool lol.”
