Elon Musk may have welcomed his newborn son into the world hours ago, but he did not miss a beat when it came to clapping back against those taking shots at his famous friends. The Tesla chief was on social media Tuesday evening when he began taking shots at UK coronavirus advisor Neil Ferguson, who just stepped down from his government post after getting caught breaking quarantine rules for a tryst with a married woman.
“What a tool,” Musk wrote while retweeting an article about Ferguson’s public indiscretion.
Even though Musk was taking aim at Ferguson, it wasn’t long before fans of Johnny Depp targeted the SpaceX founder and accused him of being involved in extramarital affairs. Specifically, the online users brought up the accusation that Musk carried on an inappropriate relationship with Amber Heard while she was going through her split with the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star.
Musk adamantly denies he was involved in any love triangle, and reaffirmed his stance on Tuesday.
“This is false. JD’s team put out ‘video evidence’, but conveniently excluded the date stamp, as it was well after JD & AH had separated,” Musk wrote on Twitter.
A die-hard Johnny Depp fan continued to lay into Musk and did not let him off the hook for the denial.
“The building staff testified under oath they let you in the building while Johnny was filming in Australia. Amber asked them to get you a fob so you had freedom to come and go. Security saw you multiple times while they were married,” the person wrote to Musk.
Musk once again claimed that whoever gave a deposition was not telling the truth, and wrote:
“This person is wrong. Why does JD want to believe he got cucked so bad anyway!?”

As we reported, Johnny Depp believes Amber Heard cheated on him with Elon Musk after catching the Tesla CEO riding the elevator up to their marital penthouse. He also named Musk in his ongoing defamation lawsuit against Heard.
“Unbeknownst to Mr. Depp, no later than one month after his marriage to Ms. Heard, she was spending time in a new relationship with Tesla and Space X founder, Elon Musk. Only one calendar month after Mr. Depp and Ms. Heard were married — while Mr. Depp was out of the country, filming in March 2015 — Eastern Columbia Building personnel testified that Ms. Heard received Musk ‘late at night’ at Mr. Depp’s penthouse.”
