NPC DAILY FACT CHECK: Did Elon Musk buy 9% of Twitter so he could tweet the N-word?

CLAIM: Elon Musk bought a 9% stake in Twitter so he could tweet racial slurs at minorities.

A viral tweet has been making its way around social media in which controversial wealth hoarder Elon Musk ostensibly brags of having paid $3 billion for what essentially amounts to an N-word pass.

The tweet was celebrated by 152k+ white supremacist Twitter users and amplified off platform by several extremist organizations, most notably the White Radicalized Association of Transphobic Gentleman Misogynists (W.R.A.T.G.M.), which was designated a foreign terrorist organization earlier this year after their Grand Wizard/Facebook admin mistook Antony Blinken’s wife for a biological male.

NPC Daily rates this claim MOSTLY FALSE.

Musk in fact bought a 9.2% stake in Twitter, and he spent only $2.9 billion.
