While there’s no doubt that Elon Musk is a visionary and one of the smartest people on the planet, sometimes his ego does get in the way and this time he may have put Tesla at risk.
In his latest case of talking out of his *ss, he’s come out and said that he was going to take the company private and that he had the money backing to do it. That’s not exactly a great move by someone whose been very well supported by investors over the years and who have been patiently waiting for his to get his production act together.
This latest gaff has now brought a huge spotlight on the company and has also brought in the government who are investigating whether he broke any laws by going directly to Twitter to announce his latest missive. We all love the cowboy in him, but he’s now biting the hand that has fed him all these years and it will be interesting to see if he will continue to get the overwhelming support from his fan boys and girls out there. What’s also sad is that he’s quickly being relegated to walking meme status by most of the younger demographic who, in reality, are the ones who will be supporting the company in the future.
