Tech Mogul Offered Woman $100k to Take Off Mask

A multi-millionaire tech mogul is being slammed for making a mid-air offer to a woman on the same flight. Steve Kirsch, the tycoon who is credited with inventing the computer mouse, claims he offered his fellow first-class passenger $100,000 to take off her COVID-19 face mask. He bragged about his offer on Twitter but some people were outraged. Kirsch tells Inside Edition, “People think I am aggressively going after people, I’m not doing that at all.” He also says they were “having a friendly conversation.”
