Boss SpaceX and Tesla, Elon Musk, for the umpteenth time got in trouble because of his tweet. This time he was publicly criticized for offending Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and comparing him to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
In the tweet, he uploaded some kind of meme image in the form of a photo of Hitler and pinned the words “Stop comparing me to Justin Trudeau” above the image.
The image then quickly spread and garnered mixed reactions dominated by critics. Musk is known to have deleted the tweet in question.
“Using the image of Adolf Hitler and exploiting the tragedy of the people who suffered, humiliated, tortured and killed by the totalitarian regime of Nazi Germany is deplorable and disturbing,” the Auschwitz Museum wrote. Futurism.
“It disrespects the memory of all the victims and hurts a lot of people.”
reported from The GuardianMusk tweeted Hitler in response to an order from Canadian authorities asking banks to block donations of crypto assets to anti-vaccine groups.
The move appears to bolster Musk’s position as an anti-vaccine group. Musk has been a staunch supporter of far-right truckers who shut down much of Canada’s transportation infrastructure to protest this year’s vaccination mandate. Musk is also known to have been an opponent of vaccines long before that.
Moreover, other observers have pointed out that this tweet that drew condemnation was not the first time Musk had mentioned Hitler.
This successful businessman in aerospace and electric cars is indeed known for his “quirkiness” which often raises questions from the public. Some of them may just confuse the audience, but others (like this case) may cause criticism.
Musk’s behavior, which often sparks debate, has even caused some shareholders of Musk’s company to question whether his technical abilities are commensurate with his “social acrobatic” behavior.
