Project Veritas Sting catches Twitter employee mocking Elon Musk as ‘special needs’, admitting revival hurts profitability

James O’Keefe’s investigative journalism group Project Veritas recently released undercover footage of a Twitter employee admitting that the platform’s woke “ideology” is why the company doesn’t is not profitable. The employee also mocked Elon Musk by calling him “special needs” for having Asperger’s Syndrome.

In a recent secret Project Veritas video, Twitter senior client partner Alex Martinez can be seen discussing how the social media giant’s “ideology” has made it less “profitable”. Martinez further denigrated Tesla CEO Elon Musk, calling him “crazy” and mocking that Musk has Asperger’s Syndrome.

In the video, Martinez strongly criticizes Musk’s stated beliefs about free speech and his hopes to make Twitter more open and accepting of other beliefs. “The rest of us who’ve been here believe in something that’s good for the planet and not just giving people freedom of expression,” Martinez said. Discussing the censorship on Twitter, Martinez said, “People don’t know how to make a rational decision if you don’t post – fix things that are supposed to be made public, right?”

Martinez notes that it looks like Musk wants to change or remove many of Twitter’s current rules, which in turn could bring in more money for the company: “If we implement all of these rules…and Elon wants dismantle them, so technically our ideology has led us not to make money because we don’t make money, and Elon wants to turn it around so we can make money.

Martinez then accused Musk of being mentally ill due to Asperger’s Syndrome, saying, “He has Asperger’s Syndrome,” adding, “so he’s special.” He later said, “We all know that and that’s fine. So here, nobody is going to say crazy bullshit because he is special.

In May, Musk revealed he was the first person with Asperger’s Syndrome to host Saturday Night Live. Asperger’s Syndrome is no longer officially diagnosed and is accepted as one of a number of conditions known as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Martinez adds in the video, “I’m like – you have special needs! You literally have special needs, but literally, you really do. So, I can’t even take what you’re saying seriously because you are special.

Musk himself commented on the video in a brief tweet.
