May 2020 – The celebrity CEO seemed unconcerned when someone pointed out that his beliefs and the policies he wants enacted would endanger his own mother.

Was Elon’s Tesla Twitter meltdown illegal? An investigation
Elon Musk welcomes you to Meltdown May. He is its mascot.
Today, Musk tweeted he’d sell “almost all” his physical possessions. Well, all right. Then, he tweeted that Tesla’s share price was too high, sending its shares down. Then he tweeted part of “The Star Spangled Banner,” America’s difficult-to-sing national anthem. He encouraged us all to “rage, rage against the dying of the light of consciousness,” which somewhat mangles the meter of Dylan Thomas’ best-known poem. He announced his girlfriend, the musician Grimes, was mad at him.
True, May only started today and Musk has been melting down all week. For instance, there was the unhinged ranting on his earnings call about the “fascist” stay-home orders California implemented to slow the coronavirus spread. “We are a bit worried about not being able to resume production in the Bay Area, and that should be identified as a serious risk,” Musk began on the call. (Six Bay Area counties jointly extended the shelter-in-place orders affecting Tesla’s Fremont factory through May 31st, with only some minor relaxing of restrictions.) Then he went on: “The expansion of shelter-in-place, or as we call it, forcibly imprisoning people in their homes, against all their constitutional rights, is, in my opinion, breaking people’s freedoms in ways that are horrible and wrong, and not why people came to America and built this country. What the fuck!”
What the fuck, indeed. Being dangerously wrong about the coronavirus has been something of a Musk hobby lately. For instance, he promoted a dubious paper on chloroquine, which was immediately ripped apart — the authors were blockchain hucksters, not medical researchers. On March 6th, he called “the coronavirus panic” dumb; on March 14th, he said that panic was worse than “corona.” On March 19th, he predicted “close to zero new cases in US too by end of April.” – Source: shorturl.at/tvTY2
Elon Musk rails against stay-at-home orders while tweeting debunked and controversial coronavirus claims
New York (CNN Business)On a recent earnings call — typically a dry review of financial results — Tesla CEO Elon Musk went off-script, calling stay-at-home orders imposed as a result of the global coronavirus pandemic “fascist.”
“Give people back their goddamn freedom,” Musk said, adding that the coronavirus shutdowns are taking a toll on his company’s manufacturing and ability to source supplies. As Wall Street analysts and investors listened, Musk railed against the restrictions, meant to slow the virus’ spread, likening them to “forcibly imprisoning people in their homes.”
The billionaire entrepreneur, heralded for years as a pioneer in space travel and transportation, has recently veered into disseminating coronavirus misinformation.
The Tesla (TSLA) and SpaceX founder has used Twitter to downplay the magnitude of the crisis and express frustration with how the pandemic has been handled. And he’s repeatedly urged the end of the stay-at-home policies, despite public health officials’ continued insistence that social distancing remains necessary to avoid a second wave of infections that could again overwhelm hospitals.
“I would call it, ‘forcibly imprisoning people in their homes’ against all their Constitutional rights, in my opinion, and breaking people’s freedoms in ways that are horrible and wrong and not why people came to America or built this country,” Musk said on the call. “It’s an outrage.” – Source: shorturl.at/mtOPT
