    While Schiff complained that he expected a “more thoughtful reply” from Musk, quite a few social media users opted to mock the investor, who was hit with the eggplant emoji.

    Famous tech entrepreneur Elon Musk has resorted to using a "phalic" emoji to make a point in an apparent online spat with prominent investor Peter Schiff.

    The exchange started when Schiff tweeted about how, two weeks after Musk "announced that he spent $1.5 billion of shareholder money buying Bitcoin," Tesla's stock plummeted, with the investor adding that it's "not an example other CEOs will likely follow."

    In response, Musk simply tweeted an eggplant emoji, which caused a stir on social media, with many users offering to elaborate on the Tesla's boss' message. 


    Schiff responded, saying he "expected a more thoughtful reply" from Musk, eliciting a fresh barrage of mockery from Twitter users.
