I wish someone would explain exactly why Elon Musk is such an a*se.. Some people simply shouldn't be allowed access to social media, Trump being the other..

Contrast that with this heartwarming piece here:

Sigh..

Yes you already explained it. He is an a@se when it comes to real life.

Perhaps it is to divert the press from his legal issues with being at risk of a vote of no confidence by his shareholder around Tesla etc.

Some of it I find sad and some of it as you say is down to being an arrogant tw*t.


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

I think Elon Musk is another Howard Hughes

Only this time there is social media so everyone can see how self destructive he may become

I think there's a slider.

Arrogance at one end...............humility and sensitivity at the other.

Maybe more than one slider thinking about it..............

Some people are set at 100% arrogance with everything else disabled.........

Well it's worked for the trumpet so he's having a go himself, I doubt either of them are bothered to listen or read any reactions such is the egocentric.

As human beings for me they don't exist, just chewing gum for the media and masses.


On the other side the everyday tales of humanity and kindness abound in our communities unfortunately they are normally deemed un newsworthy, most people that carry them out would not welcome the publicity anyway.

He clearly thinks he's untouchable as do a lot of others out there.

10% wiped off Tesla’s share price
2 senior execs walk out
Smoking a spliff on a podcast (which was legal as it was in California)

It’s looking ropey

It's a conundrum.

Elon Musk is unquestionably a brilliant visionary in many ways, but he's also clearly a complete arse.

He certainly seems unsuited to the stewardship of a public company.
