The sports world was informed on Tuesday morning about a terrifying situation regarding the health of Bronny James, the son of NBA megastar LeBron James. And unfortunately, billionaire Twitter CEO Elon Musk’s first reaction to the situation appeared to be to push a conspiracy theory on social media.

On Tuesday morning, news broke that Bronny James had to be rushed to the hospital after suffering from sudden cardiac arrest during a recent workout with the USC Trojans basketball team, where he recently signed to continue his basketball career.

Shortly after the news broke, Elon Musk took to social media where he baselessly suggested that there could be a link between Bronny’s scary medical scare and the COVID-19 vaccine.

“We cannot ascribe everything to the vaccine, but, by the same token, we cannot ascribe nothing. Myocarditis is a known side-effect. The only question is whether it is rare or common,” Musk said in a tweet.

Naturally, Musk was quickly blasted for spreading this conspiracy theory in response to the scary situation.

A spokesperson for the James family said in a statement that Bronny James was in “stable condition and no longer in ICU” as he continued his recovery on Tuesday.
