Many theories and stories have been made on Elon Musk's tweet that read "Take the Red Pill" with a rose emoji. However, the tweet is related to the 1999 sci-fi thriller 'The Matrix' starring Keanu Reeves. In one of the scenes, Neo, that is Reeves’ character, has to choose between a red pill or a blue pill by the rebel leader Morpheus. Taking the blue pill means living in the simulated reality of the Matrix where Morpheus says “You wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe.” Now, taking the red pill means dealing with reality even if the reality is hard to accept.
