In a surprising twist during a recent interview with CNN, Elon Musk, the billionaire CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, accidentally hit anchor Don Lemon while demonstrating a boxing move.
Musk was responding to a question about his company’s recent innovations when he suddenly jumped up from his seat and exclaimed, “Let me show you something!” He then began demonstrating a series of boxing moves, complete with sound effects and exaggerated motions. However, during a particularly enthusiastic punch, Musk slipped on a stray microphone cable and accidentally struck Lemon in the face.
Although taken aback, Lemon was unharmed and later joked that he had “survived an Elon Musk punch” and that he was “grateful for the entertainment.” Musk expressed regret for the event and apologized to Lemon and the CNN crew, saying, “I’m sorry about that, guys. I guess I got a little carried away.”
