The father of tech titan Elon Musk has offered a rare image of his son when he was a toddler after an AI-generated photo of future tycoon Tesla made him look like an adult human dwarf.

Earlier this month, Twitter parody account Not Jerome Powell posted a photo showing a brown-eyed boy with Musk’s recognizable stern face dressed in a white shirt buttoned up under his suspenders.

BREAKING: Elon Musk was reportedly working on an anti-aging formula, but it got out of hand, read the tweet, which has generated more than 4.5 million views as of Thursday.

Errol Musk, the 77-year-old retired electromechanical engineer, called his famous son’s AI picture ridiculous.

It’s a photo of a dwarf adult human, the elder Musk told The US Sun.

The father shared a photo of South African-born Elon with blond hair and a big smile while wearing kid-friendly shorts and a striped short-sleeved T-shirt.

[Theres] no resemblance to Elon at that age, plus an adult version of him turned into a dwarf, Errol Musk told the news site.

Errol Musk also weighed in on his son’s potential cage fight with Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, warning that Elon was entering a no-win situation.

The thing is, if this crazy fight goes on, if Elon beats this guy, Elon will be called a bully, being much heavier and taller, Errol Musk told the US Sun.

While if he loses, the humiliation would be total.

Errol Musk added: Elon loses if he wins and loses if he loses.

Errol shared a photo of Elon as a child.

Vince, he’s a bully. He loses, he’s a loser.

Elon and Errol Musk have had a famously contentious relationship. In September, Elon said he has been supporting his father financially since the 1990s.

In a 2017 interview with Rolling Stone, Musk described his father as brilliant with engineering but such a terrible human being.

Errol Musk, who divorced Elon’s mother Maye in 1979, recently made headlines after fathering two children with his stepdaughter.

Elon Musk has been critical of AI even as he pursues the technology through his own businesses, including a generative AI project that will compete directly with OpenAI’s ChatGPT.

Last month, Musk warned that there is a nonzero chance that rogue advanced AI could annihilate humanity.

There is a non-zero chance that he becomes the Terminator. It’s not zero percent, Musk said.

It’s a small probability of annihilating humanity, but it’s not zero. We want the probability to be as close to zero as possible.

Musk also raised the possibility that an advanced AI system could decide to place humanity under tight control.

In March, Musk joined more than 1,000 experts in advocating for a six-month hiatus on advanced AI products until adequate safety measures and guardrails are in place.
