Elon Musk has posted a video of a “crazy” man who allegedly sneaked up on the car his child was in, blocked the path of the car and climbed onto the hood.
The Twitter CEO said his 2-year-old son, X Æ A-Xii, known as X, was tracked down in Los Angeles on Tuesday night by a stalker wearing a balaclava.
In a short video, the suspect was seen wearing a black hood and driving a white Hyundai, picking up the phone and recording the encounter himself.
A video, believed to be taken by Mr. Musk’s driver, was panned toward the car’s license plate. There was a brief exchange with the suspected stalker – the driver apparently uttered “ok”.
When a horrified Twitter follower asked if this was the man who jumped on the hood of the car, billionaire Musk confirmed and replied, “Yes.”

Regarding the stalking ordeal, Musk said, “Last night in Los Angeles, a car carrying Lil X was followed by a crazed stalker (I thought it was me) who stopped the car and climbed onto the hood.
“Legal action is being taken against the organization that harmed Sweeney and my family.”
The stalking incident came after Musk vowed to sue the man who set up a Twitter account to track the movements of private jets.
Musk has declared that he intends to file a lawsuit against Jack Sweeney. Sweeney’s Twitter account @elonjet used publicly available records to tell the world where Chief Twit’s private jet was flying.
It’s unclear how Musk linked @elonjet to the incident, but both the account and Sweeney’s personal account were suspended.

Musk pans the video to the front of the car and glances at the license plate.
He said accounts that exposed where people were in “real time” were a “physical security breach,” and detailed the rationale for the decision.
“Accounts that publish someone’s real-time location will be suspended due to physical security violations.”
“This includes posting links to sites that include real-time location information. It’s okay for someone to post where they’ve traveled a little later, as it’s not a safety issue.
He then released a clip of the suspected stalker, captioning it: “Does anyone know this person or car?”
Sweeney’s jet account was suspended Wednesday morning. Stopped again.
Musk previously launched @elonjet in 2020, when he was 19, because Sweeney was a huge billionaire fan and wanted to see how he managed his business.
In 2021, Musk offered 20-year-old Sweeney $5,000 to suspend his account, which he considered a risk to his safety.
Jack Sweeney started @elonjet in 2020 because he’s a fan of Musk and wanted to see how he managed his business.

“Can we take this down? This is a security risk. Musk sent Sweeney a direct message,” he said. protocol“I don’t like the idea of being shot by a freak,” he added.
Sweeney declined the offer, but countered by demanding $50,000 and a Tesla. The two sides did not come to an agreement.
Despite his dislike of @elonjet, Musk posted on Twitter last month after assuming the CEO declared that he would keep his account active because he takes free speech so seriously. Did.
“My commitment to free speech also extends to not banning accounts that follow my flight,” Musk said.
Many users pointed out the hypocrisy in the comments section of Musk’s tweet announcing his lawsuit against Sweeney.
In October, when Musk acquired Twitter, Sweeney also said that Musk would be a hypocrite if he banned his account.
“Personally, I don’t think he would, because the news would spread all over the place and he would be called a hypocrite,” he told The Washington Post at the time.
In 2021, Elon Musk offered to pay Sweeney $5,000 to delete his @elonjet account
