Elon Musk haters vandalized dozens of Tesla Cybertrucks


Elon Musk haters have vandalized dozens of Tesla Cybertrucks being held ahead of delivery at a parking lot in Florida.

As we previously reported, Tesla has briefly halted Cybertruck deliveries due to a problem with its windshield wiper motor.

This has resulted in Tesla accumulating Cybertruck held before delivery at many locations around the US.

Over the last few days, I have been sent half a dozen videos of people dumbfounded about finding parking lots filed with Cybertrucks.

When I received this one from the OnlyinDade account, I thought this was just another one of these videos, but there was more to it:

People who seemingly dislike Elon Musk have decided to vandalize dozens of Cybertrucks sitting in a newly leased parking lot in Fort Lauderdale.

It’s unclear if the ‘f*ck Elon’ graffiti is easily removable or if there’s actual damage to the vehicles.

Electrek’s Take

Without justifying this really dumb act, because there’s no justifying it, this is an example of “Elon is Tesla, and Tesla is Elon.”

Technically, all these vehicles are Tesla’s property – though they are already meant for customers, they just haven’t changed hands yet. It makes no sense to vandalize Tesla’s property because you dislike Elon, but a lot of people see Tesla, a publicly held company, as Elon and Elon as Tesla.

That’s partly Elon’s own doing.

Again, I’m not trying to justify this. It’s obviously the wrong thing to do and ultimately, it will just radicalize his fans even more.

But it does show that Elon is becoming an increasingly polarizing individual and it is problematic to have such a divisive person as the head of such an important company as Tesla.

How about we just don’t vandalize private property. That’s a good standpoint to build on.
