Elon Musk can add the Escobar family to his list of detractors after notorious kingpin Pablo’s older brother, Roberto Escobar, today accused the billionaire tech CEO of stealing the design for The Boring Company’s Not A Flamethrower.
According to TMZ, an engineer associated with Musk visited the Escobar’s business compound somewhere around the summer of 2017. During that time Escobar allegedly discussed developing a “toy flamethrower” with the engineer. Apparently no further discussions were held between the two camps, which left Escobar shocked when The Boring Company announced it was developing its own flamethrower in January of 2018. Also per the report: Escobar and company are considering their legal options.
