Elon Musk compares George Soros to Magneto, the supervillain from the Marvel Comics series.
Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, has compared George Soros to Magneto, the supervillain from the Marvel Comics series. Musk made the comparison in a tweet on Monday night. "Soros reminds me of Magneto," he wrote. "Both want to erode the very fabric of civilization."
Magneto is a fictional character who is a mutant with the ability to control magnetism. He is the leader of the X-Men's enemies, the Brotherhood of Mutants. Magneto believes that mutants are superior to humans and that they should rule the world.
George Soros is a Hungarian-American investor and philanthropist. He is the founder of the Open Society Foundations, a network of non-governmental organizations that promote democracy and human rights. Soros has been a target of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, which allege that he is a puppet master who controls world events.
Musk's comparison of Soros to Magneto has been met with criticism from some who believe that it is an anti-Semitic slur. Others have defended Musk, saying that he was simply comparing Soros to a fictional character.
Musk's tweet has sparked a debate about the use of anti-Semitic stereotypes.
