Let me get this out of the way: Elon Musk is the fucking worst. Not least of all
because he single-handedly murdered my love of Grimes.
On Sunday (but not reported on by Consequence of Sound until Wednesday) Grimes
responded to a comment from a person on Twitter who pointed out to her the
hypocrisy of Musk signaling he cares about climate change with one hand and
donating to a Republican PAC with the other. The musician replied:
Every aerospace company has to donate to republicans in order to function. in
fact most major companies across the board do, in some capacity. its the price
of doing business in america.
In May, in a since-deleted tweet, Grimes defended Musk against reports that hed
fired Tesla employees who were attempting to unionize calling the story quite
literally fake news.
Last week, the Huffington Post reported that not only did Musk donate to the
GOP, he actually gave 7 times as much money to Republican campaigns and
politician committees as he did to Democratic ones this election cycle (since
the start of 2017).
