Elon Musk, the entrepreneur facing criticism for supporting an anti-Jewish post, toured the site of the Hamas assault on Israel with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and declared his commitment to combatting the spread of hatred.
Musk, the owner of the X platform, Tesla, and SpaceX, also viewed footage of the Oct. 7 Hamas killing spree, where Israel claims 240 people were taken captive. He engaged in a live online chat with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on X Spaces and met families of hostages.
Musk had previously endorsed a post falsely claiming Jewish people were fuelling hatred against white people, leading to the suspension of ads on X. The White House criticised Musk for promoting antisemitic and racist hate.
