Was Elon Musk a predator when he was younger?
There are things that can’t be bought, not even by the most prominent tycoon in the world, decency & respect are good examples. If Elon Musk wasn’t questionable enough yet, his sexual assault complaints might suffice. In the end, he’s friends with Amber Heard, which says a lot about him already. Honestly, we can’t expect much from his humanitarian side (if he still has one).
Musk was recently accused of sexual assault by a Space X flight attendant, one of the companies he’s the CEO from. It’s hard to find a scenario where Elon Musk isn’t in a power position. According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index & Forbes, Musk is the world’s richest person. Yet, the fact that he assaulted a woman that works for him does aggravate the case. But what happened? Here’s all you need to know.
Who’s Elon Musk?
It seems that nobody likes Elon Musk, but who’s this person and why is he so hated & successful? Elon Reeve Musk is a South African entrepreneur, investor, and as was mentioned before, a tycoon. He’s the founder, CEO, and chief engineer of SpaceX, the company he assaulted a worker from.
Musk is also an angel investor, CEO, and product architect of Tesla, the revolutionary electric car company. He’s as well the founder of The Boring Company and co-founder of Neuralink & OpenAI. All these businesses have made Musk a wealthy man, with an estimated net worth of about $252 billion. However, Musk isn’t really self-made, he was rich since he was younger.
When younger, Musk moved from Pretoria South Africa to Canada at age seventeen. He enrolled at Queen’s University and transferred to the University of Pennsylvania two years later, where he majored in Economics & Physics. In 1995, he moved to California to attend Stanford University, but like many brilliant minds, he decided to pursue a business career.
Elon Musk co-founded the web software company Zip2 with his brother Kimbal. The company was acquired by Compaq for $307 million in 1999. That same year, Musk co-founded the online bank X.com, which merged with Confinity in 2000 to form PayPal. The company was bought by eBay in 2002 for $1.5 billion. But why is he so questionable?
Elon Musk has been criticized since a younger age for making unscientific & controversial statements. In 2018, he was sued by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission for tweeting that he had raised financing for a private acquisition of Tesla when he hadn’t. Still, he never admitted guilt for this, however, he agreed to limitations on his use of Twitter.
By 2019, he won a libel suit brought against him by a British caver who advised on the Tham Luang cave rescue. Musk has also been criticized for spreading misinformation about the COVID-19 pandemic and for his other views on things like artificial intelligence, cryptocurrencies, and public transportation.
Was Elon Musk a sex offender since younger?
If the sexual assault accusations are true, this wouldn’t be the first time a ridiculously rich man uses his power to abuse women. Let’s please never forget Jeffrey Epstein & friends, including Prince Andrew.
Actually, in 2019 Musk declared to Vanity Fair that he took his distance from Epstein because he was “obviously a creep”. But you know what they say, if you spot it, you got it. In fact, there’s a picture of Musk with Ghislaine Maxwell at a 2014 Vanity Fair party, however, this could mean nothing.
Musk has come out at the crossroads of a Business Insider report accusing him of sexually harassing a flight attendant during a private flight. This situation led SpaceX to pay the alleged victim $250,000 to prevent the story from spreading, yet, fortunately, this obviously didn’t happen. Musk has defended himself by denying everything and saying there are several political interests behind these accusations.
