David Crosby Targets Jeff Bezos And Elon Musk, ‘They All Should Be Paying Taxes’
David Crosby has recently posted a tweet to criticize some well-known billionaires such as Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and Tesla CEO Elon Musk. The reason behind this criticism was about them not paying the income taxes and being a bad example to the citizens of the United States.
According to the reports of many journalists who have been following both Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk’s incomes and taxes for years, they have found a clever way to get rid of paying taxes by using stock incomes. Bezos who is currently the richest person in the world with having a $188.8 billion net worth didn’t pay most of his income taxes for years. Musk also did the same ‘trick’ not to pay federal income taxes in 2018.
Many people who have been paying their taxes regularly reacted to this stock income trick of the two richest men in the world through their social media accounts. As one of them, David Crosby criticized Bezos and Musk for not paying their income taxes even though they are the wealthiest people on Earth with having billions of net worth every year.
In his recent tweet, David Crosby targeted Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk regarding their witty ways to get rid of paying their taxes although he described them as visionary and innovative people who worked for the best of humankind. According to Crosby, they became a bad example to the American people who saw them as a great inspiration. He suggested that both Elon and Jeff should be paying taxes just like the rest of the citizens.
Crosby’s tweet was written like that:
“Jeff Bezos should be paying taxes.
They all should including Elon who I think is a visionary and a fine human being. He should pay too. They dodge it because they can do it and feel clever and save a ton. But it sets a shitty example.“
