Elon Musk

Elon Musk took to Twitter Tuesday to excoriate billionaire hedge funder and left-wing megadonor George Soros, accusing him of misanthropy.

"Soros reminds me of Magneto," Musk tweeted, drawing a comparison between Soros and the comic book character Magneto from Marvel's X-Men series, who is obsessed with bringing on a final confrontation between humans and mutants.

When a Twitter user noted that Soros - like Magneto - is a Holocaust survivor, and defended Soros as having "good intentions," Musk responded that the Hungarian-born billionaire "hates humanity."

"You assume they are good intentions. They are not. He wants to erode the very fabric of civilization. Soros hates humanity."

Notably, on the same day as Musk's tweets, Soros' family investment office divested its holdings in Tesla, Musk's electric car company.
