Musk deletes Paul Pelosi conspiracy tweet

Withdraws statement0 Comments

In response to a post by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, in which she claimed that the attack on Paul Pelosi by Paul DePape was the fault of Republican ‘mouthpieces’ spreading ‘hate and deranged conspiracy theories, Musk replied with an article, titled headlined: ‘The Awful Truth: Paul Pelosi Was Drunk Again, And In a Dispute With a Male Prostitute Early Friday Morning,’ that said Paul Pelosi’s attacker was a gay prostitute he met during a drunken night out. Musk:

There’s a tiny possibility there may be more to this story than meets the eye.

The article’s author offered no evidence to support his claim and Pelosi is neither gay nor an alcoholic. Musk later deletes the tweet.
