Elon Musk’s disdain for his dad probably just intensified, after the 76-year-old Musk patriarch essentially called his son fat and said he’s not proud of him.
Errol Musk jumped on the Kyle and Jackie O radio show in Australia Monday, telling the hosts he’s not proud of Elon for creating game-changing technology and becoming a billionaire, saying, “You know, we are a family that have (sic) been doing a lot of things for a long time. It’s not as if we suddenly started doing something.”
Errol as much as said his favorite child is Elon’s brother Kimbal, whom Errol called his “pride and joy.”
But there’s more. He shaded Elon after being asked about the photos of his son on vacation in Greece, saying “Elon is very strongly built but he’s been eating badly,” and urging him to take a weight loss product called garcinia cambogia.
Errol Musk, 76, on Monday called into Kyle and Jackie O’s show on the Australian radio station KIIS FM for a brutally honest 20-minute interview, in which he downplayed Elon’s success and took a swipe at his physical appearance — claiming that he even suggested the 50-year-old take diet pills after seeing his shirtless photos on a boat in Greece.
He also went on to say he has a fleet of cars, but not a single Tesla.
“He is frustrated with progress and it’s understandable,” the father said. “I know it sounds crazy, but we tend to think like that as a family. He’s 50 now and I still think of him as a little boy. But he’s 50, I mean that’s an old man.”
Elon has made it clear, he detests his dad and blames him for his family’s early struggles. This will not make it better.
