On Monday evening, Elon Musk went after George Soros, likening the leftist billionaire to an X-Men villain, insisting that he "hates humanity."

While it is unclear what sparked Musk's criticisms of the Democratic donor, some suspect it may have something to do with the fact that Soros recently dumped a significant amount of Tesla stock.

Musk posted on Twitter Monday evening, "Soros reminds me of Magneto," referring to the X-Men supervillain who can create and manipulate magnetic fields.

The social media post received more than 200,000 likes as of Tuesday afternoon.

Investigative journalist Brian Krassenstein came to Soros' defense, replying to Musk's tweet, "Fun fact: Magneto's experiences during the Holocaust as a survivor shaped his perspective as well as his depth and empathy. Soro, also a Holocaust survivor, get's attacked nonstop for his good intentions which some Americans think are bad merely because they disagree with this political affiliations."

Musk wrote back to Krassenstein, stating, "You assume they are good intentions. They are not. He wants to erode the very fabric of civilization. Soros hates humanity."

"The Rubin Report" host Dave Rubin joined the conversation and backed Musk's criticisms of Soros.

"His intentions aren't good…and even if they were his results are disastrous. He spends billions to upend western democracies, and funds chaos and mayhem in the streets of our cities. At least Magneto had a little good streak every now and again," Rubin wrote.

Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt shared a screenshot of Musk's remarks on Twitter and accused him of promoting "far-right" "antisemitic tropes."

"Soros often is held up by the far-right, using antisemitic tropes, as the source of the world's problems. To see @ElonMusk, regardless of his intent, feed this segment — comparing him to a Jewish supervillain, claiming Soros 'hates humanity' — is not just distressing, it's dangerous: it will embolden extremists who already contrive anti-Jewish conspiracies and have tried to attack Soros and Jewish communities as a result," Greenblatt wrote.

According to a first-quarter holdings report with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the billionaire's Soros Fund Management dropped roughly 130,000 shares of Tesla stock. Soros also slashed its holdings in electric car manufacturer Rivian Automotive after its stock declined by 90%.

According to Investing.com, Soros' firm made new investments in Walmart, Netflix, and JD.com, a Chinese e-commerce firm. In addition, it increased its holding in Nike, Uber, and semiconductor manufacturer Qualcomm. It pulled 75% of its stake in the Walt Disney Company and invested in railroad operators CSX Corp and Norfolk Southern Corp.
