Elon Musk is an Arrogant Billionaire

2 min read

In a recent interview with Australian Broadcasting Cooperation, Anthony Albanese the Australian Prime minister lashed out at tech mogul Elon Musk, labeling him an “arrogant billionaire” over an ongoing dispute about whether videos from a church stabbing in Sydney should be shown on Musk’s social media platform, X, formerly Twitter.

Mr Albanese said his country would “do what’s necessary to take on this arrogant billionaire, who thinks he’s above the law but also above common decency.”

Albanese said the episode showed that Musk was “out-of-touch” with the public, adding that “social media needs to have social responsibility with it – Mr. Musk is not showing any.”

Australia’s federal court late Monday issued an interim injunction ordering X to temporarily hide posts that showed footage of the Sydney church attack, where an Assyrian bishop was stabbed by a teenager during a live stream.

Musk – one of the world’s wealthiest men and the CEO of Tesla – is a self-proclaimed free speech advocate and hit back at the court order on X, tweeting that the issue amounted to international censorship.

“I do not think I’m above the law. Does the PM think he should have jurisdiction over all of Earth?” Musk said, referring to Albanese. “This platform adheres to the laws of countries in those countries, but it would be improper to extend one country’s rulings to other countries,” he tweeted.
