High tech billionaire playboy, Elon Musk and the brother of notorious drug kingpin, Pablo Escobar are fueding over Musk’s creation of a flamethrower, which is sold for $500.
Roberto Escobar Gaviria, head of The Escobar Inc., claims Musk copied the design of a flamethower that he previously manufacutred. He claims that one of Musk’s engineers saw his flamethrower during a trip to the family’s Colombian home back in 2017.
TMZ reports “We’re told while Elon’s guy was out in Medellin that summer, he and Roberto allegedly got to talkin’ about a toy flamethrower that could “burn money.” Burning cash — literally — is apparently a favorite pastime of the Escobars … ya know, ’cause of how rich they were from all drug smuggling and whatnot in Pablo’s heyday. Torching dinero … the new wealth brag.
Anyway, Roberto’s camp claims nothing ever came of that convo — until, suddenly, in January of 2018 … Elon announced his ‘The Boring Company Not a Flamethrower,’ which raked in millions in the first few days on digital shelves. We’re told the Escobars were pissed.”
Musk did not spend too much time exchaning words with Escobar Gaviria.
Elon Musk’s company, The Boring Company, continues to make and sell the flamethrowers.
