“Total hallucination”

According to experts, the grave of the builders of the pyramids, discovered in the 1990-ies, finally proves the fact that a huge structure was indeed built by the ancient Egyptians.

Tweets on the Mask also responded to Egyptian archaeologist Zahi Hawass. He has published in social networks a short statement in Arabic in which he called the words of the Mask “is a complete hallucination”.

“I found the graves of the pyramid builders – and it all proved that they were Egyptians and were not slaves” – quoted Hawass edition of Egypt Today.

In Egypt there are more than 100 pyramids, most famous of which is the great Pyramid, its height is 137 meters. Most of the pyramids were built as tombs of the pharaohs.

Elon Musk is known for outrageous statements on Twitter, which cause great public outcry.
