Brazil: The billionaire who owns the website that was formerly known as Twitter was accused on Wednesday by President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva’s wife, Janja, of using irony to minimize what she described as a misogynistic hacking of her account last week.

Elon Musk and Brazil’s First Lady Rosangela da Silva are at odds over who is to blame for the recent hacking of her X social media account. Musk has denied any involvement in the incident.

He minimizes a serious event that doesn’t just affect me, but thousands of women on his platform every day, she said in a press release.

The breach of the social media-savvy first lady’s account on December 11 made national headlines in Brazil after a hacker posted lewd images and insults directed at the president on the profile, which has 1.2 million followers.

Janja threatened to sue the company earlier this week, claiming that it was too slow to respond to requests to freeze the account, remove the posts, and help her regain access.

Elon Musk, who completed his platform acquisition last year, stated on Wednesday that his company was not to blame.

It’s unclear how we can be held accountable for someone figuring out her email password, he commented in response to a post referencing the potential legal risk.

Janja labeled the response symptomatic of Musk, who frequently engages in heated debate with detractors on the platform.

She stated that she will continue to raise questions and fight for accountability on the platform. Though she added, “I didn’t say it’s X’s responsibility for someone to ‘guess’ my account password,” she did argue that the platform ought to respond as soon as possible to crimes committed on it.
