Elon Musk teased the release of the “Fauci Files” on Sunday, which Dr. Anthony Fauci steps down as chief medical adviser to the White House at the end of 2022. Twitter CEO tweeted, Hope you have a wonderful first day of 2023! One thing is certain it will not be boring.
Responding to Elon Musk’s comment, a user tweeted, “Waiting for Fauciphiles.” The billionaire replied later this week. Elon Musk took aim at Fauci in early December when he tweeted that my pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci.
It’s America. You can select any pronouns you damn well please. But Anthony Fauci has likely saved more human lives than any living person in the world. Shame on you. pic.twitter.com/NbQks9Tohn

In an interview with the scientific journal Nature on December 13, Fauci said that Musk’s remarks caused a lot of hatred among people. When asked if his safety was at risk, Fauci said yes, adding that he had “armed federal agents with me at all times.
Later that month, Musk said that several Twitter employees had an internal Slack channel called the “Fauci Fan Club”. After this he tweeted that Twitter should change the policy and follow the science. Science must include rational inquiry”.
After the New York Times reported that Fauci had fan drawings admiring his home office, Musk called them creepy. He followed up by saying that maybe he just likes to watch science. Fauci previously announced he was stepping down from several of his roles, including director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, at the end of 2022.
Meanwhile, journalists hired by Elon Musk are discussing a number of controversies known as the Twitter Files. These include internal discussions regarding the decision to ban former President Trump from tweeting after the Capitol riots on January 6, 2021. But Twitter’s CEO and some independent journalists are upset that The Twitter Files hasn’t received more press support.
