Elon Musk insults doctors providing vital treatment to coronavirus patients

OPINION: The flamboyant billionaire has done it again, this time the target is not some diver rescuing kids trapped in a cave in Far East, its much closer to home. Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk puts his spotlight of insolence towards the doctors risking their lives for saving coronavirus patients.

Elon Musk wrote in a tweet, “And many doctors are not treating patients, due to fear of giving or receiving C19.”


This is what Elon Musk has to say about our doctors who are at the front line of coronavirus pandemic, risking their lives for saving infected patients, while he sits in the safety of his high mansion.

This did not go without criticism though, as Twitter users who were unhappy with Elon’s statement voiced their disagreement.

One user, @piehead9, replied, “Someone needs to start a petition on change.org to get this clown off twitter! He is now becoming dangerous to his followers with his advice!”

Another user @jamesmitchem7 wrote in support of our doctors.

@PPathole had a little more to add.

@CornHusker76 was a bit more blunt, pointing out Elon Musk’s reckless statement.


Someone also replied with a meme.

This isn’t the first time Elon Musk has come in spotlight for improper behavior. In 2018, he called a British diver “pedo guy” who helped rescue the boys trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand.

In this time of crisis, we should stand by our doctors, commend them for their bravery, not rebuke them.

This surely won’t be the last foolish statement by a man who claims of “saving the world” with his electric cars, given his track-record.

Regardless of what he says or do, the cultists will keep on praising him for “inventing” EVs.

I think this is how Musk market his Tesla brand, by making stupid statements and remaining on top of news. In this modern world, any kind of publicity is good publicity. People rarely are familiar with names of CEOs of car companies, but everyone knows about Elon Musk. Props to his marketing team.

“our doctors who are at the front line of coronavirus pandemic, risking their lives for saving infected patients”
And their FAMILIES.

But Attention Whore Musk always want to be the world saviour. If someone else is getting the spotlight because actually helping and being a hero then Elon Musk must destroy them.
