Faber had asked Musk about the impact of his personal tweets on Twitter advertisers and other onlookers, pointing to Musk’s most recent tweets, which critics viewed as antisemitic, The Washington Post reported.

In the controversial tweets, Musk compared George Soros, a Jewish-born investor and philanthropist, to Marvel’s Jewish supervillain Magneto and claimed that Soros “hates humanity” and “wants to erode the very fabric of civilization.”
