After a rough week for Tesla in which the electric car manufacturer, according to Forbes, “got hammered on all fronts,” CEO Elon Musk hit back at journalists who criticize him. Tesla’s offer to buy Solar City, a solar panel manufacturer, was ill-received by critics and resulted in a drop-off in Tesla stock value last Tuesday.
After waves of criticism came in, including Fox Business proclaiming that he had “finally lost it,” Musk responded on Twitter with a wry comeback to journalists who used creative ways of describing him:
Deluded, deranged, etc. Journalistic thesaurus sure got a lot of use last week …https://t.co/KFHD1FXvIe
