Elon Musk apparently doesn’t like McKenzie Scott’s philanthropic efforts … criticizing Jeff Bezos’ ex-wife for donating billions to charities that help women and minorities.

The Tesla founder expressed his thoughts on the issue on X Wednesday … writing, “‘Super rich ex-wives who hate their former spouse’ should be listed among ‘Reasons that Western Civilization died’.”

As of Thursday, the fiery post is no longer available… so yeah, he took it down.

Elon’s message was actually a response to another user’s complaint about Scott’s donations … who slammed him for giving money to organizations focused on race and gender issues — calling it “the ultimate expression of the most awful group in the US.”

Who Is Bezos’ Ex Giving Money To?

According to her fund’s website, more than half of the organizations she has donated to so far deal with issues of race and/or gender.

On its face, this seems to be in line with Elon’s recent railing against DEI. But this is not the first time he has spoken out against Scott’s philanthropy. In 2022, he linked his rivalry with his companies to “McKenzie’s donations to PACs posing as charities.”

It goes without saying … EM’s stance on diversity, equity and inclusion efforts hasn’t exactly been a secret — and has faced accusations of sexism over the years to boot.

As for Scott, his philanthropic efforts have been quite impressive. After divorcing Bezos in 2019, she walked away with nearly $37 billion and pledged to give half of it to charity. She certainly keeps her word … giving more than $16.5B to more than 1,900 nonprofits, as reported on her Yield Giving website.

It’s interesting that Elon felt the need to attack him… especially considering his Bezos rivalry.
