Two of the most famous billionaires in the world are in a war of words

Tesla founder Elon Musk hates the fact that George Soros has now liquidated the last of his Tesla stock holdings. On file with the US Financial Supervisory Authority, one of Soros’ investment funds appears to have sold all of his Tesla shares for $16 million. Soros bought Tesla shares last year and has previously been positive about Musk’s battery and electric car company. Tesla shares have nearly halved in value since the peak in September last year.

On his own Twitter platform, he came up with a personal attack on the 92-year-old investor legend.

Musk first compares Soros to the evil cartoon character Magneto, before claiming that Soros hates humanity and wants to destroy the entire civilization.

As always, Musk has the full support of his loyal keyboard warriors who support the controversial billionaire through thick and thin. Musk’s followers are now flooding the web and social media with the wildest conspiracy theories about Soros. Soros has for a number of years been a target and whipping boy for many on the political far right, conspirators as well as on the far left, as well as a mix of anti-vaccine opponents, anti-Semites and Holocaust deniers, to name a few.

Soros is Jewish, born in Hungary, but managed to avoid Nazi extermination camps as a child. After the war, he emigrated first to England, and then to the United States. He became truly legendary in the financial world when, during the currency turmoil of 1992, he took home $1 billion when the British pound collapsed. He was later dubbed “the man who broke the pound”.

For his part, Soros has largely chosen not to confront his fellow billionaire directly. But he posted a message on Twitter that the rumors that he had a heart attack were false and that he was healthy and alive.

Billionaires are among the richest people in the world. Soros is also known as a philanthropist and gives large sums of money to the struggle for democracy and human rights.
