SpaceX Fires Workers That Criticized Musk



SpaceX has fired “a number of employees” responsible for an open letter critical of the behavior of Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk, according to an internal memo, an unusual clash hinting at growing discord over the billionaire’s controversial comments. Ed Ludlow reports on “Bloomberg Technology.”

  1. I have seen videos of him walking around the facilities and for the most part, people don't seem to care he is there. They just keep doing whatever, and it does not look like a "staged event." No doubt many people are being pushed to the breaking point working on these projects, but I think you know that going in. It was not cool how he threw shade at the original raptor design team, Musk has said he is head of engineering, so there should be no excuse to "blame" anyone other than himself (the drama looked weak, because it was.)

  2. So some idiot employees bad mouth the boss, the boss fires said employees and then these two low-brow morons spend a couple of minutes not so subtly spinning a ‘no smoke without fire’ smear piece against the boss?…..

    Alrighty then…..

  3. Please forgive Elonnn. . . .
    Musk hasn't been the same
    ever since he got pegged by
    Amber. . . . :-))

  4. We have an epidemic of institutional cowardice, I am glad one company is doing something about it.

  5. used to be people quit or left their job when they don't agree with the work environment, or company policies…This ultra-woke B.s. is destroying our countries, the universe owe you nothing… cry harder.

  6. GOOD! #You_rFired 👍👍👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 There's always a rotten apple at the bottom of the barrel. Don't like working @Space_X, QUIT, or be Fired.

  7. Well SpaceX has been a brain drain for everyone else in the aerospace industry, now it time for spaceX to get drained.

  8. Not for criticizing Musk but for bothering other employees at SpaceX. Musk is always open to criticism. Please improve your video title game Bloomberg, at least live up to your name.

  9. Workimg in such an esteemed company,they should have just did what they were suppoosed to do-WORK!But nah..
    By this Elon just gave twitter employees a warning.

  10. Good. It's a private company. Keep your personal opinions and "workeism" to yourself and outside working hours, do your job or get fired. Any CEO and owner of any business would do the exact same thing especially when they're paying for your luxury salary + benefits. Weed out all the parasites Elon Musk.

  11. Isn't it funny that Musk who says he's about free speech can't stand criticism? They are right he's an embarrassment and a hypocrite

  12. If you were paying people and they were using that work time to criticise you and not work, plus distracting other people that are working, then you fire them. Why would you want to have people like that in your team being unproductive. Pretty dumb this is even a story

  13. Elon Musk owes you nothing… You can be fired and you can be hired from a private company… Simple as that ..
    People today are getting messed up in their brains honestly .

  14. The pandemic came and taught everyone the importance of having multiple stream of income, unfortunately having a nice paying job doesn't mean you are financial secured anymore. So we all need to put in an extra- income earning chance, like investment.

  15. Poor future martian base settlers. Hope they will not comment Musk person, at least publicly in social media. In this case they may get their oxygen or food supplies off someday. 🙂

  16. The Employees who got fired was Soliciting other employees for signing the Open Letter against Elon. Read the Spacex Letter to employees. Well, if you working for an Company your job is work on the mission of the Company, not solicit, Force or Distract other employees during your work time.

    I cannot say whether Elon did it or not. That's Judicial system to decide. Spacex employees job is work for the Company's Mission to Mar!!

  17. Soon mr. Musk will be building his own statues I guess. All the critics are going to be evaporated by special cyborgs. So no more criticism or rational discussions, only glorifying pamphlets are allowed there.

  18. Mr. Musk is getting the same like Saddam Hussein in Iraq and Kim Chen in nothern Korea. 🙂

  19. Late 1980's–1990's babies are SO damn whiny and annoying. Seriously . Also, I'm so ashamed of the radical elements within my generation (Generation X) who infiltrated the schools and universities….and indoctrinated the aforementioned generations with victim, or entitlement syndrome (and their "progressive" parents reinforced this nonsense). As someone with friends and associates, overseas….I really, really wish many of these generations were born in dire conditions. Then, they'd understand REAL suffering versus their privilege.

  20. VERY. DISAPPOINTED. MR. MUSK
    WITH. GREAT. POWER. COMES
    GREAT. RESPONSIBILITY,
    POWER. CORRUPTS. AND. ABSOLUTE
    POWER. CORRUPTS. ABSOLUTELY
    YOUR ON. THE. ROAD. OF. CRITEN
    KANE. HIRE. ME. SO. YOU. CAN
    FIRE. ME. AND. THE. RUSSIANS
    ARE. PLANNING. A. SNEAK. ATTACK
    WARN. WASHINGTON
    A. FRIEND..

  21. It’s always serious when a wealthy person had fan boys that defend everything they do because they’re rich and they think they’ll get something from it. Which of course never happens. You’re always left holding the “Mars bag”
