There were some supporters of Elon which were clearly overpowerd by the strong opposition to his tweet. Elon is a widley followed enterpreneur all over the world, an ideal for many, and these tweets from him will surely make us think twice before blindly following anyone.

Hi Elon, I’m not here to cancel or bully you. I just want to inform you and your audience why I believe stay-at-home orders are the right thing to do for the coronavirus pandemic. On April 16, around 5,000 people died from COVID19. Extrapolating that for a year is 1.8 million. — Eugene Gu, MD (@eugenegu) April 29, 2020
Money can’t buy humanity, apparently. — John Pavlovitz (@johnpavlovitz) April 29, 2020
What’s your plan Elon? How are you going to keep my hospital from being completely overrun? Are you sending nurses when ours get sick? Are you sending flowers to the dead? Paying for their kids’ college? FREE AMERICA NOW is not a very intelligent plan from someone like you. — Dr. Rob Davidson (@DrRobDavidson) April 29, 2020
Elon Musk was aiming at $55 billion tesla payday which is slowed by Covid 19 as the stocks are sliding for most of the companies.
This is how most of the billionaires are reacting to this public health emergency, be it Elon Musk or jeff Bezos. With eroding wealth and missing targets, the business men want their workforce back in offices and factories, because for some people, Money > Humanity.
