Elon Musk admits to saying no to Bill Gates’ philanthropy work proposal.

April 23, 2022

Tesla CEO confirmed the authenticity of leaked chats between him and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates.

Bill Gates had initiated philanthropic talks but Musk refused after asking Gates if he still holds a half billion dollar short position against Tesla.

BIll Gates replied that he has not closed his position yet.

Elon Musk then accused  Bill Gates of hypocrisy saying  he can’t take his philanthropy on climate change seriously when he has a massive short position against Tesla. 

Elon tweeted that he did not leak the screenshots to the NYT, implying he must have shared the screenshots with his friends who later leaked it on social media.

Later, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO tweeted a tongue in cheek tweet trolling Bill Gates.

The rivalry between the two billionaires is heating up. It would be interesting to see how Bill Gates responds to these revelations
