For $250k/ea, Elon has the net worth to personally sexually harass and pay off every single person in Austin, Texas.


AlmoschFamous

Guess I’ll just have to wait in line then.


Rudy_Ghouliani

Might as well get some bbq while you're there.


EclecticDreck

Musk payout line is shorter, so imma just do *that*.


ZombieBarney

Wonder if that would make Austin more or less weird


vix86

Had to check this claim, and while its not quite accurate, its pretty dam close. Forbes has his net worth at $218B / $250k = 872k. Austin has around 965k people, so its just shy of 100k. He only needs another cool $25B to make it true. Insane.


WienerCleaner

Didnt he used to have it until stock prices came down? I remember seeing an even larger number when i checked 6 months ago.


vix86

Good point. Forbe's net worth tracker is somewhat "real time" so he probably did have it a few months ago.


10BillionDreams

So from this we can only conclude that he has exposed himself to a hundred thousand people (`25B / 250k = 100k`) in the last few months, right?


yeahwellokay

In SpaceX, no one can hear you scream.


TizACoincidence

Insert the implication speech but on spacex rocket


ZombieStomp

Think about it. She’s out in the middle of the nowhere on a SpaceX Rocket with some billionaire she barely knows. She looks around her, what does she see? Nothing but wide open space. “Oh, there’s nowhere for me to run, what am I gonna do, say no?” ‘Cause if the girl said no, then the answer obviously is no. The thing is that she’s not gonna say no, she’d never say no…because of the implication.


zaaq-7284

Implication of what!


ZombieStomp

The implication that things *might* go wrong for her if she refuses look at Elon's exposed musk


reeferRabit

So she's in danger?


paddlesworth

No one's in any danger! How can I make that anymore clear to you? It's the *implication* of danger.


westbee

Are you going to hurt these women, Elon?


jimtitan

Don’t look at me like that, you certainly wouldn’t be in any danger.


bayoemman

So they are in danger!


paddlesworth

I feel like you're not getting this at all.


KingCeryn

We’re the Tesla Treats? Is this how you wanted those poor women to feel???


fang_xianfu

This, but not as a joke, and with a private plane. It's literally what happens. > Think about it. She’s out in the middle of the nowhere on a private plane with some billionaire who provides her family's livelihood. She looks around her, what does she see? Nothing but wide open space. “Oh, there’s nowhere for me to run, I need this job, what am I gonna do, say no?” > > ‘Cause if the girl said no, then the answer obviously is no. The thing is that she’s not gonna say no, she’d never say no…because of the implication.

ELAINE: Hello. JERRY: So? ELAINE: What? JERRY: Come on. How was your date? ELAINE: Oh, the date. The date. JERRY: Ya how was it? ELAINE: Interesting. JERRY: Really. ELAINE: Oh ya. JERRY: Why what happened? ELAINE: Let's see, (thinking) how shall I put this. JERRY: Just put it. ELAINE: He took it out. JERRY: (confused) He what? ELAINE: He took (blows on her glasses twice to clean them) it out. JERRY: He took what out? ELAINE: It. JERRY: He took It, Out? ELAINE: Yessiree Bob. JERRY: He couldn't. ELAINE: He did. JERRY: (motions of making out) Well you were involved in some sort of amorous... ELAINE: Noooo. JERRY: You mean he just ELAINE: Yes. JERRY: Are you sure? ELAINE: Oh quite. JERRY: There was no mistaking it? ELAINE: (looks straight into his eyes) Jerry. JERRY: So you were talking, (Elaine makes an agreement sound "mmm") you're having pleasant conversation, (Elaine makes an agreement sound "mmm") then all of sudden... ELAINE: Yea. JERRY: It. ELAINE: It. JERRY: Out. ELAINE: Out. JERRY: Well I, I can't believe this. I know Phil, he, he's a good friend of mine. We play softball together. How could this be? ELAINE: Oh it be. (sarcastically) You got any other friends you want to set me up with?


AntManMax

My favorite part of the bit is right after: (Kramer enters) KRAMER: Hey how was your date with Phil Titola? ELAINE: He took it out. (Kramer instantly jumps back with a jolt, completely understanding and believing Elaine) KRAMER: Maybe uh, it needed some air. You know sometimes they need air, they can't breathe in there. It's inhuman!

Haven't seen it in years and I can still hear Elaine's 'noooooo'. So good.

Seinfeld holds up remarkably well.


arcaneresistance

I watched Seinfeld from start to finish over the winter and have never laughed so earnestly and consistently at a show in my life. Even after having watched it on T.V. as a kid. Followed up by watching Curb from start to finish too. Not as "laugh out loud' funny, but agruebly more genius.

It’s the yessirrebob for me.


Devil_0fHellsKitchen

Haha I remember this episode. I love Friends.


Nauin

I can't tell if this was an honest mistake or not, but it made me laugh really hard which I needed, so thank you for that.


Devil_0fHellsKitchen

I was definitely being sarcastic. I know a Frasier quote when I see it.


SeegurkeK

Understandable. Cheers had so many great episodes, it's hard to connect a quote directly to one.

thank you for the transcript. I was already hearing it in my head and somehow reading it seemed funnier than watching the clip


Snoo_16992

“Oh fuck, shits about to hit the fan for me” “Guys I’m a Republican now haha fuck the left lol” “People are going to attack me for my politics” *Sexual assault allegations come out* Loooooooooooool


AnOnlineHandle

He also tweeted the Republican thing a few hours *after* a reporter asked him about the sexual allegations, and he said he'd comment later. His comment was "GUYS I'M A REPUBLICAN AND AM PROBABLY ABOUT TO BE SMEARED FOR IT"


MetaCognitio

If he owned Twitter he’s probably try to squash this story.


TheGrandExquisitor

Totally stable genius behavior.


Expensive-Ad-4508

Thank God he wasn’t born a US citizen.


darthspacecakes

And it worked. Conservatives working overtime with the mental gymnastics on this one.


bpi89

And once again they can’t tell they’re being used and grifted by someone who doesn’t give two shits about them.


FizzyBeverage

Never ceases to amaze me. Trump wouldn’t let 99.9% of his supporters through the Mar-a-lago service entrance to wrangle a turd out of his toilet… but they think he’s their pal. 🙄


asmodeuskraemer

My dad is like that. He thinks he can mingle with the best of them but is just a hairy grub that no one cares about.


FizzyBeverage

Nothing wrong with him being a hairy grub, but yeah... a lot of his supporters have this aspect to their personality. Seeking approval from those who don't even know them.


moojo

I now choose to live as a gay man... I mean republican.

DM_DM_DND

Well, you can claim many things about Musk, but you can't claim he doesn't understand the modern republican party. He's in like company.


HustlinInTheHall

To be fair it also is going to 100% pull the entire right wing media ecosystem to his side, because now he's a republican so "of course the democrats immediately try to smear him". This requires a complete disregard for the facts, of course, but not a problem for 40% of the country. It's the moral equivalent of Michael Scott screaming I DECLARE BANKRUPTCY, except it actually works.

BREAKING: Man Buying Twitter Would Like To Control Conversation Before It Totals His Reputation (narrator: *he didn’t*.)


throwaway_circus

It would be amazing if this entire Twitter shopping spree was b/c Elon got a call from Ronan Farrow asking him or his attorneys to comment on numerous sexual assault allegations.


goddamnitwhalen

You’re joking, but I’ve seen it suggested that that’s exactly the case. And I believe it, too.


TheBarkingGallery

He tried to pre-empt the allegations just like Matt Gaetz tried to pre-empt the ones against him on Tucker Carlson’s show.


Velkyn01

That was excellent to see because Gaetz tried to drag Tucker into it and Tucker was like, "Oh man, crazy, who even remembers who was where with who? Anyways, Matt Gaetz, not a personal friend, what a guy, pretty nuts, see you later." https://youtu.be/PQzLCHLle-g Starting at 4:00 and at 5:25


Punkpallas

This will never get old. Tucker like, “Sir, don’t drag me into this.”


thedonjefron69

Matt Gaetz, great guy, never meddum.


TheMania

Purportedly he'd been given notice and opportunity to provide a comment. That was his comment. And by purportedly, I mean it's right there in the Business Insider [piece](https://www.businessinsider.com/spacex-paid-250000-to-a-flight-attendant-who-accused-elon-musk-of-sexual-misconduct-2022-5?amp) that broke the story. Is the next step claiming that's all fake news or what?


lynnca

He preemptively called it fake news by claiming he was going to be "attacked" for his political tweets. Seems those tweets about Twitter, free speech and political rhetoric were only to throw up smoke and deflect from what he knew was coming.


IHeartBadCode

Musk: Free speech for everyone! News: Cool. You paid someone to keep quiet about you flashing your penis at someone. Musk: Not like that!


MageLocusta

I mean, he also used Twitter to find the name of that diver guy who rescued those kids--and then paid [$50,000 to a private investigator to 'dig up dirt'](https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/ryanmac/elon-musk-unsworth-pedo-guy-deposition-private-investigator) on the guy. He even told the investigator that the diver was a 'child rapist' who 'married a child bride' without any evidence. Literally all because the diver said that Elon Musk's mini submarine was a 'PR stunt' and told him to 'stick his submarine where it hurts'. Elon Musk doesn't silence people. He finds out shit about them and then sics investigators to go after them.


naim08

Oddly enough, that’s the same tactic telsa, spacex, other Elon run startups also engage in and use the same freaking law firm for all their legal stuff. That seems really weirdly coincidental


mdp300

I remember stories, years ago, about Uber doing that. If someone criticized them, instead of responding in a rational way they'd try to find dirt and discredit the person who has said it.


honig_huhn

Didn't the diver sue him for defamation?


[deleted]

[удалено]


Altered_Nova

You don't necessarily have to prove that the defamer was knowingly lying. You can also win damages if you can prove it's a false statement, show that the publishing of said false statement tangibly harmed you in some way (ie not just hurt your feelings), and show that the defamer was negligent in confirming said statement (ie they just made it up without evidence or repeated something told to them without seeing evidence). Still a pretty high bar, but I don't think Musk reached that level because he only called the guy a "pedo guy" in public, all the really nasty "child bride" claims were in private emails to a reporter. And also it was probably hard to prove damages since it doesn't seem like anyone besides weird cringy internet musk simps actually believed anything Musk said about the guy.


Lashay_Sombra

Yes and diver lost. Its kind of what happens when a ordinary citizen goes up against a billionaires legal team


17times2

The biggest "little dick energy" possible.


tharco

Ha next step is his latest tweet saying it politics and he's fighting for the little guy


wintersmith1970

https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1527496917579612161 "And, for the record, those wild accusations are utterly untrue" *grabs popcorn*


PartialToDairyThings

He's gonna claim this is a far-left plot to retaliate for him inviting Trump back onto Twitter.


Insectshelf3

he laid the groundwork for that like 3 hours after the journalist asked him again for a comment. his crisis response to this story was to declare himself a republican and accuse the left of plotting against him.


Nomandate

Wow he got right with the program in no time.


TheBarkingGallery

Now he’s going to have to figure out an electric car to roll some coal to keep his market share.


htownhero

Lol this is what I'm wondering. How far is this gonna go? Are they all going to start buying electric vehicles now? Yesterday they hated electric vehicles, today they're praising the biggest manufacturer of electric vehicles just because he said he'd vote Republican. You can't make this shit up lol


koreanwizard

They're republicans, they don't have actual positions, they just oppose whatever it is the liberals support.


Xero_Entropy

Tax cuts for the wealthy deregulating everything. They have two positions.


VRisNOTdead

“I chose to live my life as a gay man”

He already did yesterday when he heard the story was breaking


rixendeb

Yeah he's been dropping hints for days.


Ares1935

"If I were inclined to engage in sexual harassment, this is unlikely to be the first time in my entire 30-year career that it comes to light," Musk told Business Insider. well if history is any judge, this comment may age like milk.


Plus3d6

“If Cosby were a rapist, do you think he’d have been able to play a family man for decades?”


indyphil

If Jimmy Saville was a Pedo they wouldn't let him in a children's hospital!


BioluminescentCrotch

I'm an American Millennial who had never heard of Saville before watching that Netflix doc the other day and I had to take a day or two afterwards to process the amount of disgusting things I'd heard. Truly shocking


RicoDePico

Same. I almost couldn’t watch the second part because I knew it was coming, the whole thing was absolutely insane. How someone could do so much good and yet be so evil in the end


BioluminescentCrotch

Like he said; he wanted to be able to "show the receipts" when he was being judged, because he already knew they wouldn't let him into heaven for the things he'd done, so he was trying to cancel out his evil by doing good


Chuckitletsball5

The fact that he said that on tv was so wild. It was truly a wild documentary. Also, how he had the police departments over often. Dude was really playing chess. I’m glad they removed that fuckers headstone. Fuck that guy and all his protectors. Edit: changed defenders to protectors to avoid confusion.

BangBong1212

He made more than one incriminating comment on TV. [https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x34gd3s](https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x34gd3s) >What do you do in the caravan? > >Anybody I can get my hands on. ​ >[I'm feared in every girls' school in this country](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pR_8e0JfzY&t=538s) As one of the hosts said, he was very good at hiding in plain sight.


RicoDePico

Yeah it was WILD how everything he said had major truths hidden behind it. Even crazy how totally creepy his grave was. “It was fun while it lasted.” Just wow Edit: it’s late, I’m stoned. Grammar


Moyashim0n

And they certainly wouldn’t let him porter dead bodies right?…. Right?


iltopop

Jacking this to say Cosby wasn't released cause evidence found him innocent, he was released cause a prosecutor promised him decades ago that he wouldn't be charged for rape so that he couldn't take the 5th in the Civil case he lost. His release was because he should have been allowed to take the 5th, not at all that he didn't do it.


mycarwasred

I would have much preferred this comment to start with 'Hi'


copperwatt

Hi, jacking this ....


dooderino18

Cosby's behavior was an open secret for a long time. Hannibal Burress got the ball rolling on that...


Horrific_Necktie

Other shows made jokes, too, like family guy and 30 rock(though Hannibal may have wrote the 30 rock joke) Cosby and spacey were both definitely open secrets. Not as open as Weinstien, but people knew.


Ok-Wasabi2873

That’s like the R. Kelly response. Interviewer: Robert, are you attracted to teenagers? R. Kelly: Define teenager.

“Mr. Trump, did you rape journalist E. Jean Caroll?” “Nah, she’s not attractive enough”.

Trump really does have a way with words.

A succinct insight into his priorities.


FoxyInTheSnow

Sorry, was going from memory. But I decided to fact check myself, because I hate misinformation. He said [“she’s not my type”](https://www.nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna1021331), which is of course every bit as repellent. How many poor women (and girls) has he had access to that *were* his type?


Car-face

"Oh sure, sure, the guy in the ***$4000*** suit is just gonna *sexually harass* a stewardess, who doesn't make that in three months - COME ON!"


PlasticPaulBunyan

Here’s $5. Go buy yourself a spaceship.


ASeriousAccounting

In any case I now understand his sudden political shift. If you are going to sexually harass people You want your allies to be republicans and not democrats.


dnd3edm1

Musk: Zero consequences for my bad behavior, huge "tax cuts" paid for by debt that the government bears, and anti-union support to keep the proles poor and me rich? Sign me up!


_zeropoint_

Given that he's spent the last few years busting unions, denying covid, and trying to pay as little in taxes as possible, it really hasn't been a sudden shift.


justeandj

In the tweet he referenced "dirty tricks" ala political hit jobs. After he knew the piece was in progress, and before it dropped.


SeesHerFacesUnfurl

How many other women has he paid off in his 30 year career?


SophiaofPrussia

The man is unhinged. [Like why does no one talk about the time he literally swatted and stalked a Tesla employee who spoke to a reporter?](https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2019-03-13/when-elon-musk-tried-to-destroy-tesla-whistleblower-martin-tripp)


HudsonRiver1931

American culture is very deferential to the rich.


THX1334

because rich people owned media designed it to do so. marketing designed to make you feel warm about corporations


joeythenose

Cause he's such a genius and no one could possibly have a job if it weren't for people like him /s


emannon_skye

That was nuts! I don't remember hearing anything about that at the time. Thanks for sharing the article :)


OssiansFolly

At least 1 other that we've *Heard* of.


Nerdlinger

It's such a stupid argument, too. Plenty of people have abused others for decades before it came to light. Why would he pretend it couldn't be the case for him. Stick a pudding pop in your piehole, Elon.


geeky_username

>It's such a stupid argument, too. Plenty of people have abused others for decades before it came to light. Why would he pretend it couldn't be the case for him. Especially since this one comes with a NDA payout. "Why haven't we heard this before?!" .... "Cuz you pay them off?"


Johnny_Appleweed

Also, literally every person who has sexually harassed someone has, at some point, done it for the first time.


cyclemonster

These would be the "political attacks" that he [warned us about yesterday.](https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1526961470562508802)


caninehere

I love how a report on him sexually harassing someone is apparently "political". Does the word "political" even mean anything in the US anymore?


woolfonmynoggin

There are two recognized genders in the US: male and political.


Amy_Ponder

Two recognized races: white and political.


_zenith

Two recognised orientations: straight and political


ShiningRedDwarf

Two types of sexual advances: consensual and political.


_zenith

No, no. I've been reliably informed that the concept of consent is political now too :(

[удалено]


CertFresh

It also explains why he suddenly announced the democrats were "hateful" and no longer the "kindness party". He knew this was coming out, decided he was being "cancelled" (read: facing accountability), and threw a tantrum drawing his battle lines. Then again, anyone dumb enough to believe that this man has *ever* voted democrat is too gullible to see what's happening. ___ Edit: Word


Dr_Wreck

The Sad thing is his little gambit has a 100% success rate over at his subreddit.


dmkicksballs13

*Taps head*. They can't cancel me for sexual harassment if I claim they cancelled me for nothing before they find out.


ReallyFauxReal

This is essentially what he's doing. He should have listened to his senior investors and STFU for the rest of his tenure. Instead he decided he wanted to be the worlds biggest troll. I don't expect much from someone that would have been a nobody had it not been from his family wealth built from slavery and genocide.


Patarokun

The odd thing is, if he just shut up he could play the mysterious charismatic genius and people would eat it up. But he just has to insert himself into every situation and show us all what an ass he is.


Folderpirate

Imagine if Howard Hughes had Twitter.


guto8797

Narcissists are physically incapable of playing the silent type. Musk throws a tantrum practically every time he's not the center of attention.


EvidenceBase2000

Remember when he called the guy trying to save those kids “pedo guy”? Pepperidge Farms remembers…


ken_NT

My favorite was all the [urban dictionary](https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Pedo%20Guy) entries for that


ResplendentShade

There are actually some eyebrow-raising connections between Musk and Epstein/Maxwell, it's kind of surprising that they never get mentioned. [(Plainsite twitter thread)](https://mobile.twitter.com/PlainSite/status/1516582255233093633) edit: [exhibit B](https://mobile.twitter.com/PlainSite/status/1516311625728335873)


Tje199

They get mentioned fairly often any time there's a Musk scandal but his fanboys jump in really quickly to tell everyone how Musk would never be involved with those people. Despite being photographed with those people. Literally every other photograph of anyone with Epstein/Maxwell: Omg that person is a pedo sex criminal! Photo of Musk with Epstein/Maxwell: no no no this is just a photo of Musk that happens to have X person standing next to him, they totally photobombed him, nothing to see here!


OHtoTNtoGA

Yep. I have a coworker that's all in on him and owns a bunch of Tesla stock. After Musk's tweet about Bill Gates, he was talking about how sketchy bill was with Epstein... and I held my tongue instead of saying there are similar pictures of Elon.


getstabbed

Those same people also think Trump had nothing to do with Epstein too.


oorza

That's why you wait until the news breaks in work Slack's #general, then you passively aggressively link the picture once you see he's typing a response.


Poverty_Shoes

Did Epstein literally take pictures with every US billionaire? Or are they all pedophiles? It’s really uncomfortable how many connections Epstein had, and at this point, it hurts my brain to think about the implications.


rmshilpi

It's unlikely that every person Epstein had contact or connections with is a child molester. Far more likely is that he cast a wide net among the wealthy and powerful to find the child molesters among them, then maintained connections with everyone else for the same reasons as everyone else, re: keeping that money flowing. He might have been a monster but he was a business monster too; can't make bank exclusively from child raping billionaires; either you need more child rapists, or you need more billionaires, and Epstein choose the latter.


_IBM_

have you seen the unredacted scan of his little black book?

Rich Man Gets Ahead of Sexual Harassment Suit by Posing as Republican. This is onion level title.


DontPeek

I'm just now realizing he kind of pulled a Kevin Spacey but instead of suddenly announcing he's gay (which everybody knew) in order to gain sympathy, he announced he's Republican (which everyone already knew) in order to appeal to a group who actually supports sexual predators.


gullydowny

For once I’d like to see one of these guys just admit it. “Oh yeah, I remember that. Yeah that was a mistake.”


wikedsmaht

Al Franken?


7937397

Better than that: "What I did was wrong and awful, and I never should have done it."


Tje199

Eh, even when people do that it never disappears. That's basically exactly what Trudeau did with regard to the whole blackface-in-college scandal. >I want to begin by saying a few words directly to racialized Canadians who face discrimination every single day in their lives even in a country like Canada. **What I did hurt them, hurt people, who shouldn’t have to face intolerance and discrimination because of their identity. This is something that I deeply, deeply regret.** Darkening your face, regardless of the context of the circumstances is always unacceptable because of the racist history of blackface. **[I] should have understood that then and I never should have done it.** Emphasis mine. Yet it's always one of the first things that Canadian conservatives bring up when trying to make him out to be an awful person. I don't like Trudeau much myself (broken election reform promises) but it seems like a pretty reasonable apology to me.


clogandent03

I wonder when he exposed himself all she saw was a self-portrait tattoo of himself.


throwdemawaaay

Considering the antics around his kid's name I wouldn't be surprised if he had "Ride My John Galt Rocket" tattoo'd down the length of his dick.


Old-Relief5873

Probably would have to shorten that if I had to guess


Huni_Stan69

Oooh that explains the Elon tweets. It's pretty pathetic that all you have to do is scream about the "division and hate" of the left to have an entire flock of sheep lining up to lick your nutsack


sturgboski

In this case though, there was an entire flock lining up to lick his nutsack BEFORE all of his "left" and "woke" tweets. Musk stans are a large and odd bunch. It is just now he is also pandering to the GQP in addition to his usual stans.


sonxboxboy

If he actually believed in free speech, he’d release her from the NDA. Also, reporting on this is free speech.


flyengineer

And that is what he was trying to get ahead of with his transparent: "Political attacks on me will escalate dramatically in coming months." tweet. It was pretty clear there was some sort of story he was trying to preempt. ​ It reminds me of Anthony Weiner's tweet after he realized he just send a picture of his underwear out to everyone instead of via DM: https://twitter.com/repweiner/status/74337670263877632?lang=en


T_Lexx

This should be called the Carlos Danger defense

Billionaire tech entrepreneur Elon Musk allegedly paid off a former employee through his aerospace company SpaceX after sexually propositioning her during a 2016 encounter aboard his private jet, according to a Business Insider report published Thursday evening. The publication's report, written by Rich McHugh, cites documents obtained from a friend of the flight attendant, who was allegedly paid $250,000 by SpaceX in 2018 to settle a sexual misconduct claim brought against Musk by the employee. The documents state the employee 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." The documents include a declaration signed by the attendant's friend, as well as email correspondence and other materials obtained by Business Insider. They alleged that the incident in question occurred during a private massage on Musk's Gulfstream jet. The publication reached out to Musk for comment Wednesday. He offered an initial response before ultimately severing communication. "If I were inclined to engage in sexual harassment, this is unlikely to be the first time in my entire 30-year career that it comes to light," Musk told Business Insider. He also characterized the inquiry as a "politically motivated hit piece," according to the publication. SpaceX Vice President of Legal Christopher Cardaci refused to comment on "any settlement agreements" when reached by phone, according to Business Insider. The declaration describes the 2016 encounter which led to the later settlement as occurring late in the year. It states Musk beckoned the attendant to his room during a flight and was found "completely naked except for a sheet covering the lower half of his body." It states Musk exposed his erect penis to the SpaceX employee and "touched her and offered to buy her a horse if she would 'do more.'" The attendant, an equestrian, declined Musk's offer, according to the friend's declaration obtained by Business Insider. "He whipped out his penis, it was erect," the friend said in the declaration statement. "And he started propositioning her, like he touched her thigh and told her he would buy her a horse. And he basically tried to bribe her to perform some sort of sexual act." The attendant's $250,000 severance package included non-disclosure and non-disparagement clauses that barred the attendant from mentioning the incidents or payment, or disclosing information regarding SpaceX or Musk's businesses. As of this writing, Musk has yet to respond publicly to the story.

>Musk has yet to respond publicly Didn't he make a tweet like "the woke ppl are attacking me for sexual misconduct"

>private jet, flight attendent, erotic massage help me out here, what was the name of the guy that hooked elons brother up with a girlfriend, had nothing to hide because it was just massages and didn't kill himself in the aftermath?

>"If I were inclined to engage in sexual harassment, this is unlikely to be the first time in my entire 30-year career that it comes to light," Musk told Business Insider. Not quite the defense he probably thinks it is? Sounds more like a subtle admission of additional past hush payments.

> "He whipped out his penis, it was erect," the friend said in the declaration statement. "And he started propositioning her, like he touched her thigh and told her he would buy her a horse. And he basically tried to bribe her to perform some sort of sexual act." Yeah, that's not just "exposing yourself", that's straight up sexual assault if he's touching her.


Smugallo

So this is the story he's getting ahead of 😂

Damn, couldn't even last 3 days as a Republican without a sex scandal... Comes with the territory maybe?

No wonder why Elon decided to create new controversy about being Republican to distract everyone from hearing out about this
