It’s another crazy day for Elon Musk and Tesla.
The world’s former richest man suspended — really expelled — a bunch of journalists from their Twitter accounts. The suspended accounts included those belonging to Ryan Mac of The New York Times, Donie O’Sullivan of CNN and Drew Harwell of The Washington Post, Ben Collins of NBC, and independent journalist Aaron Rupar. Their readers and followers are moving to Twitter competitors like Substack and Mastadon.
The result is that Tesla’s stock price has plummeted to $150. Stockholders are calling for a new CEO and reportedly may try to oust Musk. Consider that the stock price on December 2nd was $194.58.
The Drudge Report has gathered together previous claims by Musk in interviews that he pops Ambien and uses hallucinogenic drugs. That news has certainly shaken stockholder confidence.
Also, Musk has sold billions of dollars of Tesla stock. Confidence builder? Um, no.
And stay tuned. Musk is now promising that a “coup de grace” is coming shortly.
Doesn’t this sound like Kanye West when he melted down? It’s almost by the book.
