Elon Musk Torches United Nations Director over Child Sexual Abuse Scandals
Tesla CEO Blasts UN amid child rape claims
Telsa CEO Elon Musk blasted the executive director of the United Nations World Food Program, David Beasley, following recent reports that children had been forced to have sex with UN officials to receive food.
Musk said he would donate a whopping $6 billion to fight world hunger if the UN explained how it would solve the problem.
Musk's offer also stipulates that the organization uses “open source accounting, so the public sees precisely how the money is spent.”
The SpaceX founder made a comment during an argument on Twitter with Beasley, who had urged Musk to donate $6 billion to combat world hunger.
Beasley told Musk on Twitter:
“$6B will not solve world hunger, but it WILL prevent geopolitical instability, mass migration and save 42 million people on the brink of starvation."
“An unprecedented crisis and a perfect storm due to Covid/conflict/climate crises.”
“What happened here?” he wrote, linking to a news story that alleged children as young as nine in the Central African Republic were forced to give oral sex to United Nations officials in order in return for food.

The investigation also showed the UN’s children’s agency, UNICEF, failed to act on reports.
Then Secretary-General of the UN, Ban ki-Moon, expressed “profound regret that these children were betrayed by the very people sent to protect them” at the time.
Allegations of systemic sexual abuse have plagued the UN, UNICEF, and the World Food Programme.
If WFP can describe on this Twitter thread exactly how $6B will solve world hunger, I will sell Tesla stock right now and do it.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) October 31, 2021
Musk said he would fund the initiative adding that “it must be open source accounting, so the public sees precisely how the money is spent.”
