Without any substantiation, Elon Musk claimed that “Soros Hates Humanity”, which sparked a lot of fumes on Twitter. Although his tweet offered no context but gained more than 14 million views.

    Magneto was a holocaust survivor whose journey started from being a villain who believed humans and mutants cant co-exist to an anti-hero allying with the X-men. Geroge Soros a Hungarian-American philanthropist and businessman worth $8.5 billion had been wrongly accused of being a former Nazi. Although this claim was debunked by a Reuters report in 2020, which revealed that Soros and his family were not Nazis. Instead, they were Hungarian Jews living in Budapest during World War II.

    Immediately after Elon Musk shared the tweet about George Soron being Magneto, he got in a spat with Brain Krassentein, an investigative journalist over his tweet. Krassenstein said, “Fun fact: Magneto’s experiences during the Holocaust as a survivor shaped his perspective as well as his depth and empathy”. He also added that Soros who was also a Holocaust survivor, “gets attacked nonstop for his good intentions which some Americans think are bad merely because they disagree with his political affiliations”.
