ELON MUSK CALLS SON LIL X WHILE NARRATING ‘CRAZY STALKER’ INCIDENT AND TWITTER IS SURPRISED
Elon Musk has said he’s taking legal action against programmer Jack Sweeney after alleging that the car carrying his son, Lil X, was followed by a “crazy stalker” last night. More than the incident itself, people are surprised to learn about the name the billionaire uses to refer to his child!
This comes after the Twitter owner suspended the account ElonJet, which was operated by the 20-year-old university student, who tracked the billionaire’s private jet using the data available in the public domain.
Elon shares his two-year-old son X Æ A-12 with his former partner Grimes.
ELON MUSK SAYS HIS SON LIL X WAS FOLLOWED
Elon claimed his son was traveling in a car in LA last night when a “crazy stalker” followed the vehicle. The Twitter boss thinks the person who followed thought it was him in the car, not his son, Lil X.
The Tesla owner claimed the alleged stalker blocked the “car from moving and climbed onto the hood”. He did not provide any update on X Æ A-12, who was allegedly in the car at the time of the incident.
In the same tweet, he further wrote: “Legal action is being taken against Sweeney & organizations who supported harm to my family.”
Jack’s account has now been suspended. This comes a month after Elon established he wouldn’t impose a ban on ElonJet despite the account following his plane, putting his own safety at risk.
ACCOUNTS VIOLATING ‘PHYSICAL SAFETY WILL BE SUSPENDED
Elon did support free speech, on grounds of which he said he would not suspend any account.
But, following the incident with Lil X, he made it clear that any account responsible for “doxxing real-time location info of anyone will be suspended,” claiming it is a “physical safety violation”.
“This includes posting links to sites with real-time location info. Posting locations someone traveled to on a slightly delayed basis isn’t a safety problem, so is ok,” he tweeted.
BILLIONAIRE’S SON’S NAME SURPRISES PEOPLE
Elon is famous for giving his child the most unique moniker. But, many didn’t know his two-year-old son was called Lil X until he mentioned it in his tweet today. And, many are still asking – Who is Lil X?
One wrote in response to Elon’s tweet: “How are you confused for Lil X (whoever he is… lol)?”
“Is Lil x any relation to Lil Wayne or Lil Kim?,” asked another.
Another wrote: “I thought Lil X was a rapper for about 10 minutes before realizing it’s your son. Now, this makes sense.”
WHO IS JACK SWEENEY?
Jack, 20, is a student at the University of Central Florida.
His suspended account on Twitter, which used to track Elon’s jet, had gained more than 500,000 followers.
He reportedly used publicly available data to build a Twitter bot that would send out a tweet every time Elon’s plane, Gulfstream, took off and landed.
Jack learned Wednesday morning that ElonJet had been permanently suspended and so were his personal and other jet-tracking accounts.
He set up the account because he’s a fan of Elon’s and because it “gives you just another view that a lot of people don’t know about where [Musk] is going and might give you clues into what new business is going on.”
