A user named Charles Weber shared a video on Why don't you say it in front of us...' In the video shared by Charles, a father is seen scolding his son for spreading hatred against the Jewish community online.
Responding to the same post, a user wrote, 'The Jewish community is promoting the exact kind of hatred against whites that they want people to stop using against them. Now I have no interest in spreading even a little nonsense about the unrest of the Western Jewish population...' Supporting this, Musk wrote, 'You have told the real truth.'
