Senator John Kennedy praises Elon Musk

A Florida college student facing legal threats from Elon Musk for tracking his private jet on Twitter has labelled the tech billionaire a “hypocrite”.

Jack Sweeney, 20, told The Independent that he thought Mr Musk was bluffing when he threatened to sue after a “crazy stalker” allegedly attacked a car carrying one of the Twitter CEO’s nine children in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Mr Musk tweeted that legal action was being taken “against Sweeney & organizations who supported harm to my family”, and promptly banned several Twitter accounts operated by him.
