May 11 (UPI) — Elon Musk’s announcement on Twitter over the weekend that he would move Tesla’s headquarters out of California has drawn the ire of a California congresswoman who directly blasted Musk on Twitter as “F—K El Musk.” California Congresswoman Lorena Gonzalez tweeted saturday night.
Earlier, Musk said via Twitter that he would move his company’s headquarters to Texas or Nevada.
“Tesla is suing Alameda County,” Musk tweeted. Alameda’s so-called ‘temporary health officials’ are unelected and ignorant, and their actions run counter to governors, presidents, constitutional freedoms, and even simple common sense! He added, “Frankly, this is the last straw.” Tesla will now immediately move its headquarters and future projects to Texas or Nevada. If we want to keep Fremont’s manufacturing activity entirely, it will depend on how Tesla is treated in the future. Tesla is the last automaker to remain in California. “
Gonzalez’s tweet caused an uproar on social media. But it then explained why: “California has been heavily subsidizing a company. But the company has been ignoring the safety and well-being of its workers, has been cracking down on unions and has been bullying civil servants. Maybe I can express my frustration in a less aggressive way. Of course, no one cares about my tweets. In addition, the proportion of new coronavirus deaths in California is higher. By far our community has been hardest hit. Perhaps that’s why we take public health officials’ warnings and instructions so seriously. “
