Elon Musk’s father Errol has revealed that he’s “really afraid that something might happen” to his son because of the “enemies he’s making.”
Errol Musk made the comments during a new interview where he discussed his son’s recent exposés of Big Pharma, media, health agencies, social media companies, and high-profile government officials and politicians in his release of the “Twitter Files.”
In recent weeks, Musk has released Twitter’s internal communications from the past few years after he took over the company in late October.
The files prove Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration, the federal government, and giant pharmaceutical corporations worked directly with the old guard at Twitter to censor information and ban prominent users.
The Twitter files have embarrassed many powerful individuals, despite efforts from the corporate media to ignore the bombshell revelations.
Errol Musk, a retired engineer, told the Sun newspaper that he thinks his son is being rather blasé about the potential backlash he may receive for exposing the corrupt establishment.
“I’m really afraid that something might happen to Elon, even though he has about 100 security guards around him,” Errol warned.
He continued by noting that his son was being “a bit naïve about the enemies he’s making, especially with the Twitter Files.”
It appears that the feeling is very much mutual.
Elon Musk fears that someone may try to harm or kidnap his father as revenge for his political stances.
The younger Musk “decided, after the recent threats against him, that I need protection as well,” Errol told the Sun.
His home has undergone a “first-class” security system upgrade, Errol revealed.
Having had his home broken into four times in the last year alone, the property is now “completely secure.”
It now has an electric fence, nine security cameras rolling 24/7 that Musk can access from his smartphone, as well as “around-the-clock monitoring by guards who are armed to the teeth.”
“If they kidnap one of us, it will be the quickest $20 million anybody’s ever made in their life,” said the 76-year-old, who previously shot three armed home invaders in 1998.
“The risk of something bad happening or literally even being shot is quite significant,” said Errol.
“It’s not that hard to kill me if somebody wanted to, so hopefully they don’t.”
Last month, Musk revealed that he has increased his personal security in response to concerns over his safety following the release of the first dump of “Twitter files.”
“The risk of something happening to me is quite significant,” the Twitter boss said.
