Elon Musk has weighed in on the conspiracy theory suggesting that a top chess player is cheating using vibrating anal beads.
The chess world was rocked this week after five-time world champion Magnus Carlsen, 31, quit the prestigious Sinquefield Cup after losing to Hans Niemann, 19.
Carlsen did so by tweeting a video of José Mourinho saying: "If I speak I am in big trouble. Big, big trouble."

Another player revealed that Carlsen pulled out because he suspected Niemann was "probably cheating".
Niemann has since admitted that he cheated by using computer assistance when playing online as a child, but denied any wrongdoing at this tournament.
"If they want me to strip fully naked, I will do it," said Niemann.
"I don’t care. Because I know I am clean. You want me to play in a closed box with zero electronic transmission, I don’t care."
Chess fans have been theorising as to how Niemann could be beating the tournament's anti-cheating precautions, which include a 15-minute delay in the broadcast of moves and radio-frequency identification checks.
One theory has caught the attention of Tesla CEO Musk and he reacted to a clip shared by another Twitter user, which showed someone discussing the possibility of anal beads being used.
The person in the video said: "That's probably a good one right, an anal bead would probably beat the thing, the engine. I don't know, I really don't know."
It was captioned: "Currently obsessed with the notion that Hans Niemann has been cheating at the Sinquefield Cup chess tournament using wireless anal beads that vibrate him the correct moves."

Musk reacted to the video with an adapted version of a quote from philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer. He tweeted: "Talent hits a target no one else can hit, genius hits a target no one can see (cause it’s in ur butt) [sic]."
He later shared a screenshot from Reddit putting forward another humorous theory – that both Carlsen and Niemann were using wireless anal beads and their devices interfered with one another.
In a final tweet, Musk added: "You can almost hear that snap of the rubber glove before chess match cavity searches…"
