Elon Musk accused of hypocrisy over doxxing

Elon Musk has been accused of hypocrisy after he appeared to search for Mark Zuckerberg’s home address on Google during a livestream.

Musk had previously banned the ElonJet account, which tracks the movements of his private jet, claiming that it was “doxxing.” However, he has now been accused of doing the same thing himself by searching for Zuckerberg’s home address.

Musk’s fans have defended him, saying that he was simply joking and that he did not actually intend to go to Zuckerberg’s house. However, many people have criticized Musk for his actions, saying that he is setting a bad example.

This is not the first time that Musk has been accused of hypocrisy. In the past, he has banned people from Twitter for criticizing him, while he himself has been known to make offensive and controversial remarks.
