Elon Musk denies the allegations of sexual harassment and senses a politically motivated coup behind them.

Elon Musk (50) denies allegations that he sexually molested a woman. In a Twitter message, he commented on the serious allegations. A flight attendant accused the Tesla boss of having exposed himself to her. The 50-year-old suspects a politically motivated reason behind the allegations.

Musk suspects political campaign behind allegations

Musk tweeted on Friday, “The attacks against me should be viewed through a political lens.” This is “their usual (despicable) move book”. The allegations will not stop him from “fighting for a good future” and the “right to freedom of expression”.

Tesla investors were unsettled by the allegations. According to “Spiegel”, share prices fell by eight percent.

The case is said to have happened in 2016

According to a report by Business Insider, Musk is said to have exposed himself to an employee of his space company “SpaceX” on a flight to London and “asked for sex”. The whole thing is said to have happened at the end of 2016 during a massage. According to Business Insider, Musk’s company responded to a flight attendant lawsuit two years later by paying $250,000. Musk is said to have dismissed a request from “Business Insider” with the words: “If I were prone to sexual harassment, this would probably not be the first time in my 30-year career that this has come to light.”

Musk publicly professed to be Republicans

Only a few days before the online magazine’s disclosure report was published, Musk publicly acknowledged his allegiance to the Republicans. He underscored his opposition to the US Democrats in a Twitter post with the words: “They have become a party of division and hatred, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republicans.”
