To the editor: The subject of associating with Elon Musk shouldn’t be restricted to X, the social media platform he controls, and SpaceX. Those that purchase and drive a Tesla assist him not directly, each socially and financially. (“Elon Musk is an anti-Semite. What can anybody do about it?” column, Nov. 17)
Passion Foyer and Chick-fil-A are two corporations that I cannot go to due to their very public stances on LGBTQ+ rights. Tesla, of which Musk is CEO, falls into the identical class.
Musk’s anti-Semitic views needs to be related to any firm he owns or is related to.
Dave Gershenson, Van Nuys
To the editor: Kudos to columnist Michael Hiltzik for calling America’s richest anti-Semite. Not too long ago, on his faltering X platform, Musk vehemently agreed with a horrific anti-Jewish screed.
It is laborious to consider that after two straight blown rocket launches, the US cannot “x” out of NASA’s multi-billion greenback offers with somebody who wipes out the decency America has all the time been recognized for.
Washington wants to point out the world — and taxpayers — that this nation doesn’t knowingly rent haters.

To the editor: If I learn yet one more pointless “X, the platform previously often known as Twitter,” I feel I am going to scream. Everyone knows that already.
I simply hope that when somebody buys the items of that firm and renames it Twitter to attempt to rebuild the model, all of the information shops do not name it “Twitter, the corporate previously often known as X, which was previously often known as Twitter.”
It might actually drive us all loopy.
