Elon Musk Thinks His Sexual Harassment Story is Just Hilarious and Makes Horrible Joke About It

It’s becoming apparent to me that Elon Musk might just be the most annoying human on the planet. Uproxx notes he was recently compared to Mike Lindell, the My Pillow CEO who’s one paddle short of a canoe. The comparisons began flying after Musk went utterly volcanic about never voting for Democrats again. He’s also trying to weasel out of the Twitter deal, but Twitter execs ain’t having it.

Musk is also the Tesla/SpaceX CEO and apparently one incident that had been swept under the rug  — until now. Allegations recently reported by Business Insider surround a controversial sexual misconduct claim against Musk. Uproxx notes that the publication relayed words that may be hearsay, but according to a friend of a flight attendant who did contract work for SpaceX, the company “dealt with a 2018 sexual misconduct claim (against Musk) with a $250,000 payoff.”

News recently broke that one of Musk’s companies paid a woman $250K to settle a sexual harassment suit. But Musk is denying anything happened.

Insider reports:

“The attendant worked as a member of the cabin crew on a contract basis for SpaceX’s corporate fleet. She accused Musk of exposing his erect penis to her, rubbing her leg without consent, and offering to buy her a horse in exchange for an erotic massage, according to interviews and documents obtained by Insider.”

“The incident, which took place in 2016, is alleged in a declaration signed by a friend of the attendant and prepared in support of her claim. The details in this story are drawn from the declaration as well as other documents, including email correspondence and other records shared with Insider by the friend.”

Musk didn’t respond to Insider’s request for comment on the report. He has, however, been tweeting quite a lot about it. Honestly, this dude is getting as annoying as Trump. He dug up old this old wish, where he tweeted “If there’s ever a scandal about me, *please* call it Elongate.” Now here we are in 2022 and he’s more than happy to extrapolate on this dumb comment.

“Finally, we get to use Elongate as a scandal name. It’s kinda perfect.”

Of course, since Insider reported Musk “exposed his genitals” and wanted the flight attendant “to do more” when she showed up to give him a massage, so we can assume this is a dumb joke. But the allegations are reportedly referenced in “email correspondence” and in a “declaration” both of which were viewed by Insider, and they have never been made public.

Musk may have ignored Insider, but that’s not stopping him from tweeting about it, however.

Not content to stop there, Musk also, according to The New York Post, accused the flight attendant’s “friend” of being a “far-left activist/actress in LA with a major political axe to grind.”

And the tweets go on. He’s also tweeted “In my 30-year career including the entire MeToo era, there’s nothing to report, but as soon as I say intend to restore free speech to Twitter and vote Republican, suddenly there is…”

Musk is also predicting the “political attacks on me will escalate dramatically in coming months.”

Uproxx writer Kimberly Ricci notes:

“Not to downplay any seriousness of the allegations mentioned above, but man, I have to wonder if Elon Musk ever sleeps. It sounds exhausting to be him, but he has enough energy for jokes.”

True, but unlike most of us, he can rest easy since he has all that money. Maybe that’s why he has all that “energy for jokes.”
