Businessman responded to user who said that the broadcaster is “Brazil’s biggest problem”

Businessman Elon Musk asked this Sunday (April 21, 2024) how much it would cost to buy the Rede Globo. He responded to a user on X (formerly Twitter), the platform he owns.

User Joaquin Teixeira, a satire profile about the right, said, in English, that “Brazil’s biggest problem is called Rede Globo” and asked the South African businessman “spend a few dollars” for “buy the demonic broadcaster and save” the country.

Afterwards, Musk published a new comment, this time with a laughing emoji, which could indicate that he was making a joke.

In 2023, or Globe Group had a revenue of R$15.1 billion, an amount that is close to pre-pandemic levels. In total, the group founded by Roberto Marinho has 13,000 employees and around 170 million soap opera viewers per year.

Throughout this Sunday, Musk also responded to publications about the pro-Bolsonaro act in Rio de Janeiro. He was mentioned by politicians who participated in the demonstration in speeches, including by former president Jair Bolsonaro (PL) himself, and also on posters.

He also made new comments about the tension with the Brazilian Judiciary that motivated Federal Supreme Court Minister Alexandre de Moraes to include him in the investigation into digital militias.
