(San Francisco, CA) -- Elon Musk is apologizing for mocking a now-former Twitter employee with a disability.

A Twitter senior director in Iceland, Haraldur Thorleifsson, tweeted at the CEO this week and said access to his computer has been cut off days ago and he didn't know if he was still employed.

Musk tweeted back that Thorleifsson "did no actual work" and "claimed as an excuse that he had a disability that prevented him from typing."

Thorleifsson has muscular dystrophy and said he can type for only one to two hours at a time.

Musk later tweeted, "I would like to apologize to Halli for my misunderstanding of his situation."
