In a measured criticism of Elon Musk, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak expressed condemnation for antisemitism “in all its forms,” a stance that fell short of the robust denunciation delivered by US President Joe Biden and others.
Sunak, in a Bloomberg TV interview, emphasized his aversion to antisemitism, asserting that it is unequivocally wrong, irrespective of the individual involved, be it Elon Musk or an ordinary person engaging in offensive behavior on the street.
The controversy surrounding Musk erupted when he endorsed a false claim on X (formerly Twitter) that accused Jewish people of fostering animosity against White individuals, asserting that the user was stating “the actual truth.” This led to a widespread backlash, with major companies like Disney, Apple, and Warner Bros withdrawing advertising expenditures. President Biden’s office strongly condemned Musk’s “abhorrent promotion of antisemitic and racist hate.”
This past week, there were hundreds of bogus media stories claiming that I am antisemitic.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
I wish only the best for humanity and a prosperous and exciting future for all.
