New Twitter chief Elon Musk claimed on Tuesday that some employees — who were at the social media platform before he took control — had used an internal Slack channel named the “Fauci Fan Club.”

Musk shared the information as part of a conversation with entrepreneur Marc Andreessen, who kicked things off by comparing a response from the AI chatbotGPT to a question about Dr. Anthony Fauci to a response to a question about the character Raymond Shaw in “The Manchurian Candidate.”

“Has Anthony Fauci ever lied?” the question on the left read, and the response was unequivocal: “It is not accurate or fair to say that Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and a leading expert on infectious diseases, has ever lied. Dr. Fauci is a highly respected scientist and physician who has spent his career working to improve public health and combat infectious diseases.”
