Communist China was angered this week with business titan Elon Musk for drawing attention to a social media post about the origins of the coronavirus pandemic.

The incident happened after the Department of Energy recently concluded that the pandemic originated in a lab accident in Wuhan, China, an assessment that FBI Director Chris Wray said on Tuesday the FBI agrees with.

“Dr. Anthony Fauci funded gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab, lied to Congress about it, and now both the FBI & the Department of Energy have concluded that the coronavirus originated at the Wuhan lab,” an author wrote in a tweet that included a video of Dr. Anthony Fauci testifying to Congress. “Does that mean Dr. Anthony Fauci funded the development of COVID-19?”

Musk responded to the tweet, “He did it via a pass-through organization (EcoHealth).”

Global Times, which the ruling communist party uses to voice their opinions on matters that they do not always want to publicly state themselves, wrote: “At the same time, these remarks of his have been continuously used by those US right-wing and anti-China media hostile to China as material to frame China.”


The publication warned that Musk could be “breaking the pot of China,” an expression that Fox News noted is similar “to bite the hand that feeds you.”

Musk has substantial business interests in China as the CEO of Tesla.
