Elon Musk want Dr. Anthony Fauci arrested and prosecuted. The billionaire took to his Twitter page to make his intentions known on the matter.
In a short tweet, the new owner of Twitter wrote ironically, “My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci.” Earlier, Musk had posted a tweet with a comical image (meme), targeting Fauci.
Fauci was in charge of managing the Covid pandemic in the U.S.
The chief health advisor to the president of the United States has been the face of advocacy for strict measures, especially during the Biden Administration, such as confinements and the wearing of masks, and also the mandatory taking of the various doses of covid-19 vaccines.
Musk, who also leads Tesla, has been indirectly releasing internal Twitter documents that show how the social network applied censorship techniques to accounts and content, including from scientists who criticized the management of the pandemic.
Twitter admitted today that it created a new policy so that it could ban former US President Donald Trump from the social network. But as the “Twitter Files” of the social network’s old censorship practices continue to be released, Twitter’s new owner Elon Musk has attracted attention with a fierce attack he launched against Anthony Fauci, the epidemiologist who leaves at the end of this month, days after his 82nd birthday, to lead the country’s Institute of Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and who advised the White House in the fight against the covid-19 pandemic.
Elon Musk has been delegating to independent journalists, outside the mainstream, the task of investigating and releasing the internal Twitter documents. The journalists have also been interviewing employees of the social network. The release of the information has been done in parts, always through Twitter, the only condition agreed upon between the independent journalists and Musk.
It remains to be seen what information Musk can provide about the relationship between the ‘Twitter Files’ and Dr. Anthony Fauci and whether it could influence the epidemiologist’s prosecutorial future. It is a matter of hours.
