Ambush? One Day After Elon Musk Denounces Democratic Party, Report Says Woman Accused Him of Sexual Misconduct


It took less than 24 hours for the assault to begin.

On Wednesday, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tweeted that he would be voting Republican from now on because Democrats had “become the party of division & hate.”

“Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold,” the billionaire said.

As Musk predicted, the backlash came quickly.

On Thursday, Business Insider, citing “interviews and documents” it had obtained, reported that the world’s wealthiest man had summoned a SpaceX attendant to his private cabin “for a full body massage” on a 2016 flight.

In a “declaration,” Musk was accused 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 report said.

The documents said this woman later reported the incident and received a $250,000 severance payment from the company in 2018, according to Business Insider.

Do you think these claims are politically motivated?

Oddly, the declaration was “signed by a friend of the attendant and prepared in support of her claim,” the report said. The outlet said “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.”

The report explained that the 2018 agreement “included restrictive non-disclosure and non-disparagement clauses” that precluded the attendant from disclosing the incident.

Business Insider said that when it reached out to Musk for comment, “he emailed to ask for more time to respond and said there is ‘a lot more to this story,'” which he called a “politically motivated hit piece.”

In the email, Musk wrote, “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,” the report said.

Business Insider said it “extended the deadline” but Musk failed to respond.

The accuser’s friend, who has requested “anonymity, citing fears for her personal safety,” provided the outlet with more details, according to the report. She said she learned the story while hiking with the flight attendant shortly after the incident had supposedly occurred.

“She was really upset. She didn’t know what to do,” the friend was quoted as saying. “She figured things could just go back to normal and she would pretend like nothing happened. However, she started to feel as if she was receiving some sort of retaliation where her shifts were cut back, and she was starting to feel really stressed.”

“They [the flight attendant’s superiors] encouraged her to get licensed as a masseuse, but on her own time, on her own dime,” the friend said. “They implied that she would get to fly more often if she were to do this because she’d be able to give Elon proper massages.

“I thought that was kind of strange because — you weren’t hired to be a masseuse. You were hired to be a flight attendant. And if Elon likes massages, then he should be paying for you to go to masseuse school. But she was just so happy and eager to have the job and be able to travel.”

The declaration said, “Before the incident, she regarded Mr. Musk as a person to look up to. But after he exposed himself, touched her without permission, and offered to pay her for sex, she was full of anxiety. … She was being pushed out and punished for refusing to prostitute herself.”

The flight attendant did not comment on the story.

The friend told Business Insider she had not discussed her plans with the flight attendant before speaking out.

“I absolutely felt a responsibility to come forward with it, especially now,” she said. “He is the richest man in the world. Someone with that level of power causing that kind of harm and then throwing some money at the situation, that’s not accountability.

“There are predators all over the world. But when someone is particularly wealthy and powerful, they literally have systems that are like a machine working for them, to set them up to be able to do whatever they want.”

She added, “When you choose to remain silent, yeah, you do become a part of that system. You do become a part of that machine that allows someone like Elon Musk to continue to do the horrible things that he’s done.”

Musk reacted to the report early Friday morning on Twitter.

He said the “wild accusations are utterly untrue” and “the ‘friend’ in question who gave the interview to BI, is a far left activist/actress in LA with a major political axe to grind.”

Musk became a target of the left the moment he revealed he had acquired a 9 percent ownership stake in Twitter in early April, and that intensified as he worked to fully purchase the social media company and end its censorship of conservative views.

He poses a huge threat to the left’s ability to control the national narrative. His repudiation of the Democratic Party on Wednesday was just further provocation.

The left is out to destroy him, and it will use every weapon at its disposal to do so.
