Elon Musk Suggests He May Die 'Under Mysterious Circumstances' in Ominous Tweet

Elon Musk posted his regards to the world Sunday night in a cryptic tweet that suggested he might die “under mysterious circumstances,” the New York Post reports.

“If I die under mysterious circumstances, it’s been nice knowin ya,” the tech billionaire said.

The Tesla and SpaceX CEO’s tweet seemed to be referring to a message he shared from Dmitry Rogozin, the head of Russia’s space agency, who claimed Musk is “involved in supplying the fascist forces in Ukraine with military communication equipment.”

“And for this, Elon, you will be held accountable like an adult — no matter how much you’ll play the fool,” the former deputy Russian prime minister added.

Musk provided SpaceX Starlink terminals to Ukraine at the beginning of the Russian invasion in February, at the request of Ukrainian officials concerned the country would be cut off from the internet.

According to a translation of Rogozin’s tweet, shared by Musk, the “Nazi Azov Battalion” is able to access the internet because of Musk’s Starlink equipment.

“From the testimony of the captured commander of the 35th Marine Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Colonel Dmitry Kormyankov, it turns out that the internet terminals of Elon Musk’s Starlink satellite company were delivered to the militants of the Nazi Azov Battalion and the Ukrainian Marines in Mariupol by military helicopters,” Rogozin reportedly wrote.

“According to our information, the delivery of the Starlink equipment was carried out by the Pentagon,” he continued. “Elon Musk, thus, is involved in supplying the fascist forces in Ukraine with military communication equipment.”

A Mariupol-based national guard unit, the Azov Battalion has frequently been used by Russia as a justification for its attempted “denazification” of Ukraine.

In a 2015 interview with USA Today, unit spokesperson Andriy Diachenko said 10% to 20% of the group’s members are Nazis, but that the ideology of certain members “has nothing to do with the official ideology of the Azov.”

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who is Jewish, has rejected claims that the battalion promotes Nazism.

“The Azov Regiment is not a volunteer [formation)] but part of the National Guard,” Zelenskyy told Fox News last week. “They are [part of] the official army of our state. Anyone who wanted to get involved in politics [left the Azov Regiment].”

Musk’s mother responded to her son’s tweet with a tweet of her own.

“That’s not funny,” Maye Musk said.

“Sorry! I will do my best to stay alive,” Musk told her.

Last month, Musk reached a deal to acquire Twitter for $44 billion.
