Elon Musk blames embarrassing moment on "unhinged leftists"

Musk, who reportedly remained silent while on stage, responded to the incident in a Twitter post on Dec. 12.

"Technically, it was 90% cheers & 10% boos (except during quiet periods), but, still, that's a lot of boos, which is a first for me in real life (frequent on Twitter). It's almost as if I've offended SF's unhinged leftists... but nahhh," wrote Elon Musk, via Twitter.

On Dec. 11, Musk drew criticism for tweeting about outgoing U.S. chief medical advisor Anthony Fauci.

NBC reports that the tweet served to contribute to a wave of online abuse and conspiracy theories aimed at the United States' top virologist.
