Frequent MSNBC guest Anand Giridharada accused supporters of Tesla CEO Elon Musk of confronting him at an airport on Wednesday.

“Some Musk brother has just confronted me at an airport just outside security, but only when he had cleared it, if you’re wondering if this digital army he’s triggering is only online,” Giridharadas tweeted.

Giridharadas has often criticized Musk for his chase on Twitter, which he bought for $ 44 billion. On April 6, he compared Musk’s initial share purchase of 9.2% to defend freedom of expression on social media with a arsonist posing as a firefighter. On Monday, he further claimed that Musk only supports freedom of speech for white men.

“Elon Musk lives in a world where the only form of free speech is that white men feel free to say what the hell they want,” Giridharadas said. “What many of these people do not understand is actually freer speech when everyone not only has the opportunity to have an account and can afford a phone and be able to tweet, but can feel safe.”

Although Giridharadas’ tweets are protected, he still received backlash for his “Musk bridge” claim as well as comparisons to the disgraced actress Jussie Smollett.

“Because a society that outsources the care of its social interactions to people who behave like sociopaths is a society that does not pray for freedom, but for tyranny,” he wrote.
