Elon Musk admits he was once ‘almost beaten to death’

Tesla CEO Elon Musk shared this week that he was once hospitalized after being “almost beaten to death,” surprising listeners in a recent interview.

Musk shared the comments during an interview with Business Insider’s CEO Mathias Dopfner.

The incident

“It was hell at school and hell at home,” Musk said.

“It’s important to know that South Africa is a very, very violent place. Violence is normal. And it’s not unusual, so I’m not talking about just words. I was almost beaten to death at one point. So, it was a close call. I was in hospital for a while. So anyway, this is not a rare story, frankly,” he added.

Other news

Musk has also continued to make headlines recently concerning other events.

“Musk conducted an informal poll late last week on Twitter, which stated: ‘Free speech is essential to a functioning democracy. Do you believe Twitter rigorously adheres to this principle?'” The Daily Wire reported.

“More than 2 million people responded to the poll with 70.4% saying that Twitter did not adhere to the principle,” the report added.

Musk also shared this week that he tested positive for COVID-19 for a second time.

Musk’s latest account may make a strong headline, yet it’s only one of many for the world’s richest man in recent days.
