The disdain that Elon Musk feels for his father has likely grown after the 76-year-old Musk essentially called his son fat and said he’s not proud of him.
Errol Musk was a guest on the Kyle and Jackie O radio show in Australia Monday, telling the hosts he’s not proud of Elon for creating game-changing technology and becoming a billionaire, saying, “You know, we are a family that have (sic) been doing a lot of things for a long time. It’s not as if we suddenly started doing something.”
Errol was clear that Elon’s brother Kimbal is his favorite child whom he called his “pride and joy.”
He threw shade at Elon after being asked about the photos of his son on vacation in Greece, saying “Elon is very strongly built but he’s been eating badly,” and suggesting that he take a weight loss product called Garcinia Cambogia.
He also went on to say that while his son owns a fleet of cars, he doesn’t own a single Tesla.
Elon clearly detests his father and blames him for his family’s early struggles. This interview is not likely to improve the relationship.
