Elon Musk lashed out at Sen. Elizabeth Warren after writing a letter to Tesla’s board. Musk said on Twitter that America was “damaged” by Warren being a senator.
Warren has long been critical of the Tesla boss and the two have been at loggerheads in the past. Elon Musk has attacked Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Twitter after she wrote a letter to Tesla’s board expressing concern about Musk’s new role.
Responding to a Twitter user who posted about the senator’s letter, Musk said: “Having him as a senator has definitely done a disservice to the United States of America.” On Sunday, Warren wrote to Tesla’s board that Musk’s Twitter acquisition raised questions about possible violations of securities or other laws.
In their letter, they said these potential violations include “whether Mr. Musk is funneling Tesla resources into Twitter, potentially ‘improper diversion of resources that could affect Tesla’s sales and earnings’ and result in” Programs at Tesla may be ‘delayed.’.”
Musk’s preoccupation with Twitter has had an effect on Tesla. The EV company’s stock has fallen more than 50% this year, although the company’s shares rebounded slightly after Elon Musk suggested he might step down as Twitter CEO.
Despite poll users voting in favor of Musk’s resignation and the billionaire previously promising he would follow up on the results, he has not stepped down. Instead, he responded to a Twitter user who said that only Blue subscribers should be able to vote in policy polls. Elon Musk said: Good point. Twitter will change that.
Warren has long been critical of the Tesla boss and the two have been at loggerheads for some time. The billionaire once dubbed her “Senator Karen” after she was called out in 2018 for allegedly not paying federal income tax.
In April, Warren took issue with Musk’s original deal to buy Twitter. She labeled the deal “dangerous to our democracy” in a tweet. Representatives for Warren and Musk did not immediately respond to requests for comment made outside normal business hours.
