Tesla move came after California legislature tweeted “fk Elon Musk”

Tesla CEO Elon Musk confirmed Friday that his company’s move to Texas was inspired in part by a fire tweet addressed to him by a California legislature.

Musk’s confirmation came in response to a scruffy Tesla blog post claiming that “Musk selflessly tried to defy government measures” by opening a factory in Fremont in violation of COVID-19 precautions of Alameda County reopened in 2020. For context, Musk sued the county over the Stay Home Order, which closed the company’s factory, and dropped the suit 11 days later.

The Tesla fan blog – with the headline “Tesla has moved its HQ to Texas following an explicit offer from the Californian assembly woman” – calls on Gonzalez to tweet Musk a strong expression and says the tweet “indicates serious problems in the state apparatus.”

Musk tweeted in response to the article and its heading, “Exactly.”

Gonzalez was stunned, and tweeted that the CEO “makes too much of his money on tax subsidies in California to retire.” This comment refers to the fact that Tesla will keep its California factories.

“And yes, he’s still awful” she added on twitter. “Valued at $ 200 billion and dumped his caretakers during the pandemic.”


She later tweeted screenshots of her being harassed on Twitter and Instagram by Tesla enthusiasts.

California Governor Gavin Newsom Gonzalez agreed to comment in a press conference held in Oakland Friday praising Musk for “his entrepreneurial spirit.”

“I probably get such tweets every hour and I’m staying here and I love this state,” Newsom said. per Politico reporter Jeremy B. White. And, what’s worth it, Newsom too defended state tax for companies like Tesla.
