As Twitter’s possibly going down its own Downward Spiral under Elon Musk‘s ownership, the billionaire has some words for Trent Reznor.

Following the Nine Inch Nails frontman’s exit from Twitter after Musk purchased the social media platform for a reported $44 billion, Elon tweeted, “It turns out that Trent ‘nine inch nails’ Reznor is actually a crybaby” alongside a crying-laughing emoji.

Musk later added, “I like [Reznor’s] music tbh, but maybe Etsy is more his style.”

Reznor told The Hollywood Reporter in a recent interview that he was planning to “depart” Twitter, adding, “We don’t need the arrogance of the billionaire class to feel like they can just come in and solve everything.”

“Even without [Musk] involved, I just find that it has become such a toxic environment,” Reznor said. “For my mental health, I need to tune out. I don’t feel good being there anymore.”

As of Monday, Reznor had deactivated his Twitter account.
