A new Project Veritas video appears to show a person identified as Twitter executive Alex Martinez callously mocking Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk as being "special needs."
What are the details?
The video, released on Tuesday, showed lead client partner Martinez discussing how the social media company's woke ideology resulted in turning less profit.
“If we’re implementing all these rules ... and Elon wants to dismantle them, then technically our ideology has led us to not making money, because we’re not making money, and Elon wants to turn it the other way so that we can make money,” Martinez said.
Martinez argued that people can't make rational decisions if the narrative isn't handed down to them.
“The rest of us who have been here believe in something that’s good for the planet and not just to give people free speech,” Martinez insisted. He later added, “People don’t know how to make a rational decision if you don’t put out — correct things that are supposed to be out in the public, right?”
He also took a swipe at Musk's Asperger's diagnosis and called the tech-savvy billionaire a "loony tune."
"Elon Musk as a person is whatever," he said. "I don’t, like, he’s a loony toon. He has, he has Asperger’s. ... I’m like — you’re special needs! You’re literally special needs, literally though, you really are," he said. "So, I can’t even take what you’re saying seriously 'cause you’re special.”
Twitter has yet to publicly comment on the video, but Musk himself addressed the concerning video on social media.
Upon apparently first seeing the video, Musk tweeted, "Is this legit?"
