DEBUNKED: Elon Musk cat abuse rumors explained as scams spread


Fake news stories claiming Elon Musk abused cats at school went viral on social media platform Twitter this week, and now fake news has been exposed. On November 7th, a Twitter user with the username @hepcatsector posted screenshots from an article about allegations of past bad behavior by new Twitter CEO Elon Musk. The tweet, which went viral on social media a long time ago, was reported to have garnered 80,000 likes and over 15,000 retweets. Elon Musk is routinely trolled online for his tweets and activities, but this has confused a lot of people. According to outright fake news, Twitter chairman Elon Musk’s father allegedly paid $125,000 to cover up allegations of animal cruelty. The article also states that Elon Musk apparently consumed a lot of cocaine and that the creature died shortly thereafter. Individuals frequently troll Elon on the web, and this wild and upsetting effort has tricked thousands on social media platforms into believing the news.

The allegations were made when a Twitter user, a fake news article that Elon Musk’s father paid college $125,000 to ignore animal cruelty allegations, shared screenshots of a tweet containing horrific language. According to a news article made as if from the Independent, the Twitter CEO said he was obscene with a cat when he was in college. There are cases when a businessman falsely claims that a business paid for the necessary surgery before the cat died. But it’s all fake information. The Independent’s article doesn’t have that title, and all of it was apparently made by Troll Twitter CEO Elon Musk and the rest of Twitter.

Elon Musk exposes fake animal cruelty news

The photo of the fake article was created to impersonate an article from the British online newspaper The Independent. The story was published on November 4, 2022 by Graeme Massie, and Elon Musk’s father paid college $125,000 to ignore allegations of cruelty to animals. Misleading reports have emerged of Tesla founders engaging in lewd behavior toward a fellow student’s cat while consuming high amounts of cocaine. He also added that the cat had to undergo surgery, which Musk’s father paid for in a $125,000 settlement. The cat was reported to have died shortly after from the infection.

The fake article also said that the Twitter owner has stopped several interviews raised about it, threatening to take legal action against journalists who repeat it. A quick Google search will show that there are no such articles published by The Independent. Despite the unique language used, the Catturd’ Twitter account introduced by Elon Musk is also a crafted variant of The Independent’s Massie article about Elon Musk, which mentions Tesla’s billionaire.

Twitter CEO Bans Impersonating Accounts from Twitter

Since Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter was completed at the end of October, Elon has been making major changes to the company. He laid off many of the platform’s employees over the past week and is now starting to change the rules and features of Twitter as well. Tesla founders have stated that accounts participating in the impersonation will be quickly blocked from the platform without making it clear that he is a parody profile. He added that Twitter would never warn users again before suspending their accounts and that it would be essentially impossible to regain access. This comes days after a 51-year-old verified person allowed customers to purchase a blue tick that provides a verified status. Users in certain countries can sign up for Twitter Blue for $7.99 per month. In other words, Blue Tick does not hold for famous superstars, individuals and organizations at this time.
