A senior Twitter executive reportedly ridiculed Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk for having Asperger’s syndrome on a video released Tuesday by Project Veritas.
The video, recorded by an undercover Project Veritas journalist, allegedly features Twitter Lead Client Partner, Alex Martinez, who appears to mock Musk for having Asperger’s syndrome. Martinez referred to Musk as “special needs,” according to the video.
“He’s [Elon Musk] a looney tune, he has Asperger’s. So, he’s special,” Martinez reportedly said in the video. “You’re special needs, you’re literally special needs. … So, I can’t even take what you’re saying seriously. Because you’re special.”
