Recently, Elon Musk's appeal among conservatives has increased; and although there are many reasons people with this political inclination might like him, one of his most admired traits is his ability to speak like former President Donald Trump.
Recently, the Tesla, Space X and Starlink CEO successfully bought Twitter.
Now, the tech billionaire has promised through Twitter that he will fight against the allegations being made against him and Tesla using his "street fighter" attorneys.
Coincidentally, the accusations started appearing in the press after he successfully bought Twitter, a business move he claims to have made intending to restore free speech. He also criticized the left for being opposed to free speech regarding those they disagreed with.
Musk also bashed Biden's government over several issues and declared that he would be giving his vote to Republicans.
Tesla, his company, was also removed from the S&P 500 ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) Index over claims of racial discrimination and crashes caused by its autopilot vehicles.
The head of S&P Dow Jones' ESG indices for North America, Margaret Dorn, claimed that some of the reasons the company was taken off the index include its lack of published details concerning its business conduct codes or low carbon strategy.
Margaret went on to say that a company's practices across all dimensions have to be considered instead of believing what a company says in its mission statement.
After the announcement to take his company off the index, Musk tweeted saying, "ESG is a scam," while pointing out that Exxon was among the top ten best companies in the world as per the S&P 500 while Tesla was not. According to him, the rating has lost its integrity and has also been weaponized by "phony social justice warriors."
Musk got more bad press after he was accused of exposing himself to a flight attendant working for Space X's corporate jet fleet. Musk also allegedly touched the attendant, who reportedly offered to buy her a horse if she gave him an erotic massage.
One Twitter user wondered where these accusations were before his recent stands "against the establishment." Musk responded to the comment by saying "Exactly" before denying the allegations.
He also argued that the "liar" who had said their friend saw him "exposed" could not describe anything at all about him, such as tattoos or scars the public doesn't know about.
Musk went on to say the "friend" had a political score to settle with him.
Musk also revealed that he did not respond to a request for comment from the Business Insider, the media outlet to which the "friend" had given an interview. He said that he did not respond because he believed that the goal was to frustrate his attempt to acquire Twitter.
According to the media report, Musk allegedly paid $250,000 to the accuser before making her sign a nondisclosure agreement.
Ben Shapiro, a lawyer, said that paying that amount of money for someone as wealthy as Musk cannot be considered an admission of guilt. Shapiro pointed out that such an amount suggests that Musk considers something a nuisance.
After that, Musk went on to say something that got him a lot of attention. He mentioned that his company was developing a "hardcore litigation department" to initiate and execute lawsuits.
He went on to say that they would not seek victory in cases against them if they were justified, even if they could win. Similarly, Musk said they would never settle/surrender an unjust case against them even if they would likely lose.
Musk then revealed that he was seeking "hardcore streetfighters" because "There will be blood."
