In the wake of news that LeBron James‘ son Bronny James collapsed due to cardiac arrest during basketball practice at USC on Monday, vaccine skeptics speculated — without evidence — that the incident was linked to the COVID vaccine. One of those doing the speculating was Elon Musk.
Musk responded to an article about the incident, hinting that the vaccine could have played a role.
“We cannot ascribe everything to the vaccine, but, by the same token, we cannot ascribe nothing,” Musk wrote, adding that “Myocarditis is a known side-effect” of the vaccine.
Musk’s public embrace of skepticism towards the vaccine got Infowar host and career conspiracy theorist Alex Jones very excited.
“People woke up, man. They know now it’s poison,” Jones declared on his Tuesday podcast. “They know it’s a fraud, and more are waking up all the time.”
“So we’re saving lives together! And I hope LeBron James does the right thing now. Elon Musk came out and said he thinks it’s the shot. He thinks LeBron James is from the shot. ‘Elon Musk suggests 18-year-old Bronny James’ cardiac arrest due to vaccine injury, myocarditis.’ Yeah, you can’t stop the signal. You thought Alex Jones was a problem? Now you got Elon Musk, Tucker Carlson, and Joe Rogan on your ass.”
