Elon Musk faces assassination attempt

The father of Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Errol, is concerned about his billionaire son. The Musk patriarch fears that Elon is ruffling some feathers, which could get him assassinated.

It all has to do with the legal action being pursued against Musk by the US government and an article in The New Yorker, in which Pentagon officials condemned Musk for his attitude towards Russian President Vladimir Putin. US President Joe Biden said in July that Musk’s purchasing of X, formerly known as Twitter, would be investigated. As if that wasn’t enough, he is also being taken to court by the US Department of Justice for allegedly discriminating against asylum recipients and refugees in hiring.

In an interview with The U.S Sun, Errol Musk said both he and his son are genuinely worried about what could happen to him, amid all the lawsuits and negative press. The older Musk said he advised his son to beef up security.

The 77-year-old former engineer reacted to an article in The New Yorker written by Ronan Farrow, titled Elon Musk’s Shadow Rule, saying: “It’s a hit job, a shadow government-sponsored opening salvo on Elon. The artillery-like softening up of the enemy before the actual attack and preparing of the ever-submissive people for the attack.”

The article expresses concern over Musk’s influence.

Elon Musk has previously said that he was at risk of being assassinated. In December 2022, Musk told Twitter Space: “Frankly, the risk of something bad happening to me, or even literally being shot, is quite significant. It’s not that hard to kill somebody if you wanted to, so hopefully they don’t, and fate smiles upon the situation with me, and it does not happen.”
