Elon Musk is suing his stalker

Elon Musk announced on Twitter that he is suing his stalker Jack Sweeney. At first, he tracked the billionaire’s plane and published information on his @ElonJet account, but when Musk blocked it, he switched to ground vehicles. Musk's patience ended that night when Sweeney stalked the car carrying Musk's two-year-old son, obstructing its traffic and even trying to climb onto the hood.

Simultaneously with the announcement of the preparation of the lawsuit, Musk posted a video of the alleged stalker on Twitter, and also announced a new rule on his social network: no one can again report anyone's location.

“Any account that transmits real-time location information will be banned as it is a violation of physical security,” he wrote.

As Sky News comments on Sweeney's infatuation, "It's not clear what legal action Musk could take against Sweeney over an account that automatically posted public information."

In total, according to Insider's calculations, Sweeney got himself 34 accounts that track the movements of famous people around the world. Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos and even Russian oligarchs such as Roman Abramovich and Alisher Usmanov fell into his sphere of interests. But only Elon Musk reacted sharply and publicly to the leak of information about the movements of his aircraft. On Wednesday, during the day, all these accounts were also blocked.

We have already written about the conflict between Musk and Sweeney and how a fan of a billionaire turned into his opponent.
