It started on Sunday when Musk tweeted out, "Take the red pill". The phrase is associated with the 1999 movie "The Matrix", in which Keanu Reeves' character Neo learns that the life he thought he had been living was actually a computer simulation.

A note to conservatives: Lilly Wachowski probably will not like it when you quote "The Matrix".

Lilly Wachowski is calling out both Elon Musk and first daughter Ivanka Trump for using a reference to The Matrix and relating it to the coronavirus pandemic.

Wachowski replied to Trump reposting Musk's tweet by saying: "F-- both of you".

A fourth "Matrix" film is now in development at Warner Bros., but while Lilly Wachowski's sister, Lana, is returning to write and direct, she is not.

Tesla CEO Musk tweeted "Take the red pill" accompanied with a red rose emoji on Sunday, and soon after was quote-tweeted by Trump with the reply: "Taken!"

As most movie buffs know, "take the red pill" is a reference from the Wachowski sisters' sci-fi blockbuster "The Matrix".

"Taking the red pill" has become online slang for being politically awake and aware, usually from a right-leaning perspective. It can now mean shifting one's political alignment to the right, and it's often used in Internet forums related to Donald Trump or men's rights groups. The tweet comes as Musk has begun espousing more anti-regulatory views, threatening to restart Tesla's factories in California in defiance of the state's mandated closures of businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Wachowski is now working on a fourth installment in the "Matrix" franchise, with Reeves and Carrie-Ann Moss both returning.
