Elon Musk appears to have had enough.
The Tesla, Space X and Starlink CEO, who is working through a deal to buy Twitter, took to the platform on Friday vowing to fight accusations made against him with “street fighter” attorneys.
An increasing number of accusations — the latest being sexual in nature — have come on the heels of his successful Twitter bid and after he essentially predicted he will come under assault earlier this week.

His company, Tesla, was removed from S&P 500 ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) Index because “because of issues including claims of racial discrimination and crashes linked to its autopilot vehicles” Reuters reported.
This week there was another report that hit Musk in which a flight attendant who was hired as a contractor for the corporate jet fleet of Space X said that Musk exposed himself to her years ago, touched her, and offered to purchase a horse for her in exchange for an erotic massage, Business Insider reported.
“Where were these wild accusations against before he took a stand against the establishment?” one Twitter user said, which caught the attention of musk and garnered a response.
“Exactly,” he said. “And, for the record, those wild accusations are utterly untrue.”
“But I have a challenge to this liar who claims their friend saw me ‘exposed’ – describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public. She won’t be able to do so, because it never happened,” he said.

“Moreover, the ‘friend’ in question who gave the interview to BI, is a far left activist/actress in LA with a major political axe to grind,” he said.
Following these attacks, Musk took to the social media platform to announce the formation of his legal team.
“Tesla is building a hardcore litigation department where we directly initiate & execute lawsuits. The team will report directly to me. Please send 3 to 5 bullet points describing evidence of exceptional ability.”
“My commitment: – We will never seek victory in a just case against us, even if we will probably win. – We will never surrender/settle an unjust case against us, even if we will probably lose.”
And he wants “hardcore streetfighters, not white-shoe lawyers like Perkins or Cooley who thrive on corruption.”
He also promised, “there will be blood.”
