There are many automotive visionaries, people who go down in history for revolutionising the way we look, think and build cars. Carl Benz inventor of the car, Henry Ford who changed the way cars are built, Enzo Ferrari who found a way to combine a race car with a road car and sprinkle that unique Italian class all over it. Elon Musk is someone who could be classed in the same way. He has changed the game when it comes to electric cars. Going from an economy box with the range of a potato and a top speed just faster than walking to a luxurious must have item that can beat pretty much anything on the roads is a massive achievement.
But that doesn’t mean he’s a good person. Recently when one of the British heroes of the Thai cave rescue criticised Musk’s ill thought out attempts to help the situation when a plan was already in action, Musk decided to tweet his thoughts on the man, calling him a ‘pedo’. This is a baseless and lacking in any form of evidence. Just because Musk was criticised he decided to lash out and make seriously damaging accusations against a man many are calling a hero.
In a time of the #MeToo movement and Operation Yewtree to make an accusation of this magnitude is foolish at best and at worst could ruin a mans reputation for life.
But this isn’t Musk’s first negative out burst earlier this year he bemoaned any press coverage of him that was negative, basically calling it ‘Fake News’ (Where have I heard that before) and in years prior he has tried to sue Top Gear for it’s not overly positive review of the Tesla Roadster, and fired his secretary of 20 years for asking for a raise.
This recent pedo outburst won’t be the last of Elons career, its just a question of how many more will he have before Tesla shareholders take a stand and oust him from the company.
