After sharing a joke on social media showing Adolf Hitler, tech entrepreneur Elon Musk has received a lot of criticism.
Musk was replying to a news article on Twitter that the Canadian government has ordered financial institutions to avoid dealing with hundreds of crypto addresses linked to the country’s current trucker protests.
Musk posted a photo of Adolf Hitler on Twitter at 2:46 a.m. with the comment “Stop comparing me to Justin Trudeau. I had a budget.”
Elon, a bombastic billionaire renowned for his divisive remarks on politics, pop culture, and economics, was widely chastised for the tweet, which was still up as of Thursday morning.
“[Musk] has exercised extremely poor judgment by invoking Hitler to make a point on social media,” the American Jewish Committee said in a post of its own. “Comparing Trudeau to a genocidal dictator who murdered millions is not an appropriate way to criticize policies. He must apologize immediately.”
Others pointed out that Musk had previously shared photos of Hitler on social media.
