Tesla CEO, Elon Musk has been slammed for suggesting Covid-19 vaccine may be responsible for NBA star LeBron James’ son’s cardiac arrest.
Glamsquad reported that Bronny, NBA star LeBron James’ son, experienced a medical emergency and was hurried to the hospital following a collapse at USC’s Galen Center on Monday. Fortunately, he is now in a stable condition and has been discharged from the intensive care unit.
Amidst the sports community and fans expressing their well wishes for 18-year-old Bronny’s recovery after his cardiac arrest, Elon Musk was swift to suggest that the Covid vaccine might be responsible for the incident.
Kara Swisher, a tech journalist and frequent critic of Musk, said there is ‘never somebody else’s tragedy that this bottomless put of attention does not find a heinous way to insert himself, frequently wrong but never in doubt’ in a scathing tweet aimed at the Musk.
One Twitter user commented: ‘Elon Musk appears to be claiming without a shred of evidence that Bronny James’s cardiac arrest is linked to the Covid vaccine.’
Another said: ‘Elon Musk is replying to tweets about Bronny with conspiracies about the vaccine. The James family is already going through a tremendously difficult moment and now the owner of this website is helping direct the crazies at them.’
Another slammed Musk on Twitter and wrote: ‘You have no proof or 1st hand knowledge given to you directly from the family so why are you out here speculating about something so deeply personal and painful about Bronny’s condition?’
Bronny, who recently committed to the Trojans, was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance after a 911 call was made at 9.26am Monday.
The incident is believed to have been a Code 3, which signifies the seriousness of the call as it requires ambulance lights and sirens.
His father LeBron is ‘making sure he gets the best care possible’ and has entered ‘full Dad mode and is protecting his son in any way he can,’ a source told DailyMail.com.
Cardiologists have warned that Bronny’s career which was only just beginning following his high school graduation – could already be over.
Dr Christopher Tanayan told DailyMail: ‘If they find something that puts him at a high risk for sudden death then that… may make or break his career.’
