In a tearful Instagram post, actress and activist Alyssa Milano accused Elon Musk, the billionaire founder of Tesla and SpaceX, of ruining her life.
Alyssa Milano, best known for her roles on TV shows like “Charmed” and her outspoken political activism, revealed she invested heavily in Tesla stock in hopes of supporting clean energy and fighting climate change.
However, she claims that the stock has plummeted due to Musk’s recent controversial statements and actions, which have caused him massive financial losses.
[I trusted Elon Musk, I really did,] Milano said in the Instagram video. “But now he’s gone and ruined everything. He’s been making lewd jokes on Twitter, sending rockets into space, and generally being a complete and utter disaster for my portfolio.
Milano blamed Musk for her recent career setbacks, citing a lack of roles and job offers since the stock market crash. “I used to be America’s sweetheart, but now nobody wants to work with me because of Elon Musk,” she lamented.
Some have criticized Milano’s comments, pointing out that investing in the stock market comes with inherent risks and that Musk’s actions should not be the sole factor in financial decisions.
Others have suggested that Milano’s public breakdown may have been a publicity stunt or an attempt to shift blame for his financial decisions.
In response to the backlash, Milano doubled down on his allegations, even calling for a boycott of all Tesla products. We need to send a message to Elon Musk that he can’t just ruin people’s lives and get away with it,” she declared in a follow-up Instagram post.
Elon Musk has yet to respond to Milano’s allegations, presumably because he is busy launching rockets, designing electric cars, and developing the future of human civilization on Mars.
