Twitter CEO Elon Musk posted a cryptic tweet Wednesday after he seemingly called for Dr. Anthony Fauci to be prosecuted.

Musk tweeted Sunday that his pronouns are “prosecute/Fauci,” as Fauci steps down from his role as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases after five decades.

While Musk didn’t initially elaborate on his tweet, Twitter user “Hodgetwins” responded “let me guess, you found messages between Twitter execs and our govt. (Fauci and team) pushing for censorship of anyone that didn’t go along with their narrative on Covid?”

Musk responded with a trophy emoji.

Musk’s tweet comes as Twitter reinstates several accounts, including two doctors who were deplatformed for tweeting about the vaccines.

Cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough was reinstated Tuesday along with Robert W. Malone, who helped work on mRNA vaccine technology.

McCullough had made posts about the efficacy and safety of the vaccine as well as having made a video warning of myocarditis. Mallone, who shared the same skepticism, was banned after he shared a video voicing concern over the Pfizer vaccine.

Both McCullough and Malone sued Twitter for suspending their accounts in July.

Musk’s initial tweet was met with backlash, with White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre calling his tweet “incredibly dangerous” and “disgusting” at Monday’s briefing.

“These personal attacks that we have been seeing are dangerous on Dr. Fauci and other public health officials as well,” Jean-Pierre said. “They are disgusting and they are divorced from reality, and we will continue to call that out and be very clear about that.”
