Errol Musk backtracks on his controversial comments about his son Elon

After saying he was not proud of his famous offspring, Errol Musk returned to his controversial remarks.

The 76-year-old denied saying anything like that during the latest episode of ‘Piers Morgan Uncensored’.

Addressing the startling remark in which he took a wild dig at Tesla’s CEO, Errol said he was misquoted.

”I never said anything like that. I’ve been proud of him since the day he was born. A person does not suddenly become proud of your child. It’s ridiculous. Suffice to say that I don’t like it. I mean, it’s crazy. I love it,” said the South African engineer.

In a previous interview, when Errol was asked if he was proud of Elon, he replied, “No. You know, we’re a family that’s been doing a lot of things for a long time, it’s not like we suddenly started doing something.”

Not only that, Errol also took a look at his son’s physical appearance while discussing recent photos of Elon shirtless on a yacht in Greece.

According to him, “Elon is very well built and he is very, very strongly built, but he eats badly.”

Highlighting how a weight loss supplement called garcinia cambogia helped him shed pounds, Errol recommended his son take the same.

Errol, who spent his youth in apartheid-era South Africa, and his ex-wife Maye Musk had three children, including Elon, Kimbal and Tosca.
