He reportedly used the analogy to mean that his reputation would be be seen differently if his investments improved

Softbank recorded a $13 billion annual loss, leaving founder and CEO Masayoshi Son to defend his investment strategy.

He was asked on an investment call whether he felt he was misunderstood by the media.

The company founder compared himself to Jesus Christ, saying Jesus was misunderstood and criticized, according to The Financial Times.

He reportedly used the analogy to mean that his reputation would be be seen differently if his investments improved.

The report said Son has been known for unexpected quotes, having quoted Yoda of “Star Wars” by saying “listen to the force.”

He has also suggested that the Beatles weren’t popular at the beginning.
