The sharing of Elon Musk, CEO of companies such as Tesla and SpaceX, from the social media account related to the coup in Bolivia was on the agenda. Musk’s response to a follower, “Whoever we want to blow,” garnered thousands of reactions.
Evo Morales, the first indigenous head of state of Bolivia, Latin America’s country with rich underground resources, resigned with a sudden decision last year. The alleged link between the US-backed military coup that forced Morales to resign and Elon Musk, CEO of companies such as Tesla and SpaceX, caused a stir.
For those who do not know, Bolivia had recently canceled an agreement with a German mining company for lithium reserves, and this company was said to be Tesla’s supplier. For this reason, it was difficult for Tesla to obtain the raw material of the ion battery, even indirectly, from Bolivia. These allegations that have been confusing for a while came back to the agenda with a tweet Elon Musk confirmed on Twitter that it was almost related to the coup.
