Elon Musk is a self-confessed gaming obsessive, but he has revealed that he draws the line when it comes to shooting police officers.

The Tesla CEO weighed into a debate about Grand Theft Auto (GTA) on his social media site X after the highly-anticipated trailer for the sixth edition of the violent first-person game was leaked online.

Responding to an X employee’s post that they had never played GTA, Mr Musk said he was not a fan of the gratuitous violence.

“Tried, but didn’t like doing crime. GTA5 required shooting police officers in the opening scene. Just couldn’t do it,” he wrote.

The reasoning was met with mockery by many in the replies, with several people reminding that the game isn’t real.

“They’re pixels dawg,” one person wrote.
