While on a call with Elon Musk and Alex Jones, Vivek Ramaswamy was called out for leaving his microphone on while he relieved himself.

On Sunday, X CEO Elon Musk decided to participate in an X Spaces livestream to welcome conspiracy theorist, insurrectionist, and InfoWars founder Alex Jones back to his social media platform.

The livestream—hosted by self-described alternative media and crypto "king" Mario Nawfal—included a veritable who's who of right-wing, White nationalist pundits and provocateurs including Jones, Musk, Jackson Hinkle, Jack Posobiec, Dave Smith, alleged sex trafficker Andrew Tate and Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy.

Musk was speaking with Nawfal about his decision to reinstate Jones, whose lies and harassment of mass shooting victims and their families and incitement of violence contributed to his removal from multiple social media platforms.

Ramaswamy cut in to say:

"Gentlemen I have to go."

And go he did.

The commentary from Musk continued, but it was joined by what sounded like someone urinating.

Jones remarked:

"Someone’s got their [mic] open peeing!”
“Someone’s got their phone open in the bathroom."

Nawfal identified the culprit, saying:

"Vivek, that's your phone. But I am not able to mute you."

The GOP presidential candidate muted his phone then came back to apologize.

Ramaswamy said:

"Sorry about that!"

Musk responded:

"Well I hope you feel better now."

The conservative candidate replied:

"I feel great, thank you."

People quickly remarked on Ramaswamy's live stream during the livestream.

Musk previously claimed he would not allow Jones back on X after his 2018 ban.

Musk was convinced to restore Jones' account after conducting an unscientific poll of X users, in which 70% of respondents agreed Jones should be allowed back on the platform.

Jones was ordered to pay $1.5 billion to Sandy Hook families for repeatedly telling his followers the 2012 school shooting was a hoax and that victims and their families were crisis actors.

Six adults and twenty children were murdered in the Newtown, Connecticut elementary school.
