Elon Musk, owner of the social media company X, is facing backlash from political leaders and companies after he endorsed a post on his company’s platform that spread a discredited and antisemitic theory about Jewish communities.
Musk responded to the tweet on X with the comment “you have said the actual truth.”
Several companies, including Apple and Disney, pulled or paused their advertising on the platform as a result of Musk’s tweet.
Asked about the controversy, U.S. national security spokesperson John Kirby said he was “not aware” of any efforts by the White House to wean the U.S. government off its reliance on Musk’s companies, including SpaceX.
