Elon Musk declared himself “aspirationally Jewish” after visiting Auschwitz to address fallout from endorsing an antisemitic post.

He emphasized his support for free speech and opposition to anti-Jewish sentiment, following backlash and ad boycotts on social media.

Musk vehemently denied being antisemitic, highlighting his visit to Israel and condemning his previous actions.

“And, you know, there’s this old joke ‘I’ve got like this one Jewish friend,’” Musk said. “No, I have like two-thirds of my friends are Jewish. I have twice as many Jewish friends as non-Jewish friends. I’m like Jewish by association, I’m aspirationally Jewish.”

He defended X as a platform for free speech, aiming to be “the best source of truth,” despite previous controversies and confrontations with advertisers.

“Relentless pursuit of the truth is the goal with X and allowing people to say what they want to say, even if it’s controversial, provided that it does not break the law,” he said.

“If somebody’s going to try and blackmail me with advertising, blackmail me with money, go f— yourself,” he said. “Go. F—. Yourself.”
