Due to a disagreement over a coronavirus ebook, Elon Musk has said that the tech giant Amazon should face a “break up”.
Basically, Amazon’s Kindle publishing division refused to include an author’s book about the coronavirus in their library and Elon Musk decided to jump between the dispute.
He defended the author and took to twitter to tag Amazon’s chief executive Jeff Bezos, saying that rejecting the book was “insane”. He further added that it is “time to break up Amazon.”
In response to the author, Amazon said that there was some error and the company would fix it soon.
The writer has been identified as Alex Berenson who made it to Musk’s Twitter feed after he posted a screenshot from Amazon on his account. He said that his book was rejected because it did not meet the guidelines.
“They censored it!” wrote Mr. Berenson. “It is based entirely on published government data and scientific papers. It doesn’t say coronavirus isn’t real or doesn’t kill people.”
Elon Musk also disapproved of the government’s policies of imposing a lockdown. He called the stay-at-home orders “fascist” and even threatened the government to move Tesla’s headquarters out of California if he wasn’t permitted to operate in the city.
Both Bezos and Musk are also owners of rival companies that make vehicles for space. Last year, when Musk expressed his desire to colonize Mars, Bezos responded to the comment with criticism.
According to Business Insider, he said: “My friends who want to move to Mars? I say do me a favor: Go live on the top of Mount Everest for a year first and see if you like it because it’s a garden paradise compared to Mars.”
