Imagine getting caught on video clearly making fun of your new boss. And then imagine that incoming boss is billionaire Elon Musk.
While the Tesla and SpaceX CEO is not yet running the show at Twitter as he awaits some roadblocks to his attempted purchase of the social media giant, leftist employees are reportedly not happy with the coming change and seem to be very vocal about it.
One worker, Alex Martinez, went as far as mocking Musk for being “literally special needs,” saying he suffers from Asperger’s Syndrome in an undercover video released by Project Veritas.
Not only was Martinez outed by the undercover journalist group, his video was seen by Musk who was none too pleased.
Described by Project Veritas as a “Lead Client Partner” at Twitter, Martinez was seen and heard in the video “discussing the company’s ideology, criticizing the acquisition of the company by Elon Musk and at times denigrating Musk for his expressed views on free speech,” according to the PV website.
“The rest of us who have been here believe in something that’s good for the planet and not just to give people free speech,” Martinez said, disparaging Musk’s vision to restore free speech on the platform. “People don’t know how to make a rational decision if you don’t put out — correct things that are supposed to be out in the public, right?”

Among other criticisms, the employee took a direct hit at Musk who had publicly revealed he has Asperger’s during a “Saturday Night Live” appearance last year.
“Elon Musk as a person is whatever. I don’t, like, he’s a loony toon. He has, he has Asperger’s,” Martinez said in the undercover video.
“He has Asperger’s… So he’s special. We all know that. And That’s fine. So here, no wonder he’s going to say some f***ing crazy sh*t because he’s special,” he said at one point. “I’m like- you’re special needs! You’re literally special needs, literally though, you really are. So, I can’t even take what you’re saying seriously cause you’re special.”
Unfortunately for Martinez, the video caught Musk’s attention and he soon reacted.
“Twitter exec trashing free speech & mocking people with Asperger’s …” he wrote in a tweet responding to the video posted online.

Fox News reported that he had also pinned the tweet to his Twitter page.
Musk also responded in another tweet with a sad face emoji.

Another Twitter employee, senior engineer Siru Murugesan was caught in a separate Project Veritas video saying the company “does not believe in free speech” and that he and his colleagues are “commie as f—.”

“Some of my colleagues are like super left, left, left, left, left… They’re like, ‘This would be my last day,’” the senior engineer told the undercover journalist about how some employees feel about Musk becoming the new boss. “We did all we could to, like, revolt against it. A lot of the employees revolted against it, but at the end of the day, the board of directors have the say and then they acted on their best interests because they didn’t wanna get sued.”
Meanwhile, the latest mockery of Musk and Asperger’s ignited passionate responses on Twitter.
Asperger’s isn’t a disability…it’s a superpower 🦸

When they got nothing they turn to personal attacks. That’s their playbook.

Someone making fun of special needs thinking they are acting for the greater good. So woke.

Wow. My eyes got teary hearing the guy speak about Elon.
My son and I have Aspergers, as do others in our family. The guy showed his true colors.
