David Rothschild faced ridicule on Twitter for complaining that Elon Musk grew up in privilege, with one user telling the economist, “You’re literally a Rothschild.”
The farce was kicked off by Rothschild, a market analyst, tweeting, “Rich white son of emerald mine owner who grew up in apartheid South Africa is the real victim in our society #ThoughtsAndPrayers.”
The snarky tweet was in response to Musk saying he can no longer vote Democrat because they have become the party of “division and hate,” and that he will vote Republican.

Rothschild countered by claiming he had no links to the banking dynasty.
If I did come from a wealthy banking family (which I do not) and you hate elites, why would you be mad at me for advocating massive inheritance taxes, rights of workers to organize, more spending on infrastructure to increase economic opportunity? Would that not be a good thing?

As to Rothschild’s apartheid smear, back in March Musk vociferously denied his family ever owned an emerald mine, or that their money came from exploiting apartheid.
My father & his extended family have been dependent on financial support from my brother & me for over 20 years.
