The attacks launched Sunday by Elon Musk against Anthony Fauci, presidential adviser on the COVID-19 pandemic, provoke strong criticism. Karine Jean-Pierre, spokesperson for the White House, believes that the billionaire's remarks are “incredibly dangerous”.

Ms. Elon Musk are revolting and out of touch with reality, she added.

In a tweet posted on Sunday morning, the Twitter and Tesla big boss called for Dr. Fauci to be sued for alleged wrongdoing in his public action.

My pronouns are Indict/Fauci , wrote the wealthy businessman, referring to the habit – abhorred by some of the American conservatives – that some Americans have of presenting themselves by indicating the pronouns corresponding to their gender identity.

He also posted a tongue-in-cheek meme about a scene from Lord of the Rings. It features Dr. Fauci saying to the US President: Just another lockdown, my king, in an apparent critique of this measure taken in the past to combat COVID-19.

Both tweets quickly went viral and have already garnered plenty of criticism.

Republican lawmakers have threatened to go after Anthony Fauci when they take control of the House of Representatives from January regarding COVID-19 vaccines, mandatory mask-wearing and other pandemic-related measures.

Advisor to Republican President Donald Trump and then Democrat Joe Biden, the scientist found himself at the center of the sometimes extremely violent debate in the United States over how to respond to the pandemic.

He received death threats and was endowed in the spring of 2020 from police protection.

The 81-year-old immunologist is due to leave his post as presidential adviser on the pandemic this month. He will also step down before the end of the year as director of the National Institute of Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which he held for 38 years.
