Elon Musk says communists made his trans daughter hate him

Billionaire Elon Musk recently blamed his broken relationship with his trans teenage daughter on neo-Marxists who have supposedly infiltrated elite schools.

In a profile in the Financial Times, Musk was discussing his shift away from being a Democrat and lambasted liberalism for corrupting his daughter. “It’s full-on communism…and a general sentiment that if you’re rich, you’re evil. [My relationship with her] may change, but I have very good relationships with all [my other kids]. Can’t win them all.”

Musk has a total of 10 children, one of whom tragically died as an infant.

Over the summer, his 18-year-old trans daughter, Vivian, filed court papers in Los Angeles County to legally change her gender and her last name because, in her words, she no longer wished “to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form.”

She and her father have never publicly discussed their relationship or her gender identity, but Musk himself has a habit of tweeting transphobic messages.

After posting two tweets mocking pronouns in 2020, Musk wrote in December 2020, “I absolutely support trans, but all these pronouns are an esthetic nightmare.” In his tweet, he misspelled “aesthetic” and didn’t specify which pronouns most offend his artistic sensibilities.

On March 14, 2022 — soon after media outlets reported news that his ex-partner Grimes had begun a relationship with transgender military whistleblower Chelsea Manning — Musk posted a digitally altered image of what looks like a pregnant man sitting under the words “Netflix waiting for the war to end to make a movie about a black ukraine guy falls in love with a transgender russian soldier.”

During his recent appearance at the Qatar Economic Forum, Musk said he was “undecided” on whether he’d support former President Donald Trump in the 2024 election. Trump’s first term was marked by numerous anti-trans administration policies.

Musk also defended his daughter when reports of her transition began to circulate.

“She does not want to be a public figure,” he told the Daily Beast at the time. “I think it is important to defend her right to privacy. Please don’t out someone against their will—it’s not right.”
