Twitter CEO Elon Musk recently tweeted about his child’s death and it received heavy backlash from the netizens after his ex-wife Justine revealed the truth.
After a Twitter user asked Musk to re-instate the account of conspiracy theorist Alex Jones who had claimed that the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting was just a hox. In response, the Twitter owner recalled a painful memory and tweeted that he would never show mercy to anyone who uses the death of kids for their own personal gains, be it for politics or fame.
Musk tweeted, “My firstborn child died in my arms. I felt his last heartbeat. I have no mercy for anyone who would use the deaths of children for gain, politics or fame.”
Soon, Elon’s ex-wife Justine Musk revealed the real story and stated that it wasn’t the techie but she was holding the child. She wrote, “A SIDS-related incident that put him on life support. He was declared brain-dead. And not that it matters to anyone except me, because it is one of the most sacred and defining moments of my life, but I was the one who was holding him.”
This enraged the netizens and they slammed the Tesla owner, left right and centre. One wrote, “I am so sorry that happened to you and your child. 💔 Elon lying about that is the lowest of low.” Another posted, “For a man to try and steal the memory of that moment from a mother and coopt it for himself reveals just what kind of man Elon is. He should really heed his own words and look inward but I have a feeling he has little experience in introspection.”
