Elon Musk''s aerospace firm SpaceX reportedly paid $250,000 to eliminate a sexual harassment claim from an unidentified flight attendant in 2018. The news came just after Musk took to Twitter to declare himself a Republican. Musk is now defying these charges.
An anonymous friend of the alleged victim was quoted in a Business Insider. Elon Musk claimed to have been exposed to her on a private jet. The huge sum was thought to have been hush money in exchange for keeping the incident quiet.
Elon Musk is battling back against the accusations in a response to a tweet about the allegations. Elon said the story was completely false. Musk claimed that he challenged the accused victim to describe physical attributes on his body that nobody would be able to.
For the record, these horrifying accusations are utterly untrue.
I have a flaw to this liar who claims his friend saw me exposed, and says he describes only one thing, nothing at all (scars, tattoos, etc.) that isn''t known by the public. She will not be able to do so, because it never happened.
Elon Musk''s political shift isn''t lost on those who follow his every move. He was accused of inappropriately touching the flight attendant and offered to buy her a horse if she would do more. So far, the accused victim has not spoken about the incident. The coincidental timing of Elon Musk''s sudden political shift is not lost.
