Musk has been a harsh critic of both the global response to the coronavirus pandemic and California’s stay-at-home orders, calling them “fascist” during Tesla’s first-quarter earnings call on Wednesday.
“It’s breaking people’s freedoms in ways that are horrible and wrong and not why they came to America or built this country,” Musk said. “What the f–k? Excuse me. Outrage.”
Musk doesn’t take a salary from Tesla or SpaceX, but is the top shareholder of both companies and has an estimated personal worth of $30-$40 billion. He owns several homes in California valued at over $100 million, according to The Wall Street Journal, that includes a cluster of six homes in the ritzy Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles.
