While Eli Lilly's stock was negatively impacted, the parody account's tweet did bring attention to a major issue in the US- the price of insulin.
\u201cLet's be clear. Eli Lilly should apologize for increasing the price of insulin by over 1,200% since 1996 to $275 while it costs less than $10 to manufacture. The inventors of insulin sold their patents in 1923 for $1 to save lives, not to make Eli Lilly's CEO obscenely rich.\u201d
\u201cEli Lilly stock isn't just tanking because of a satirical Tweet on Musk's hellscape, it's tanking because millions of people are asking why we have to pay for insulin, when it was made to be free.\n\nThat's why other insulin stocks are falling too.\n\nHappy Disability Awareness Month\u201d
