Elon Musk continues to rage, rage against the dying of the light, unveiling a swirly mohawk haircut when he was photographed landing in Miami for Art Basel on Wednesday night — and it's getting roasted on social media.

Because the bold new haircut is on Musk, a contentious figure among many, commentary came fast and mercilessly, as people roasted Musk's bold new follicular direction with a range of jokes on social media.

For many, it seemed the haircut was giving one of two vibes: Zorg from The Fifth Element or Roger Klotz from Doug.

It's been somewhat of a difficult year for Musk, as 2021 saw the Tesla billionaire split from Grimes and begrudgingly pay some taxes. Perhaps a mid-life crisis haircut is the only fitting way to cap off such a tumultuous year.
