Tesla and Space X CEO Elon Musk responded to The Washington Post profile that quoted critics slamming him for being stretched too thin.

Musk replied to the request for comment, saying, “Give my regards to your puppet master," referring to the outlet's owner Jeff Bezos.

In the WaPo article, it notes Musk's exhausting schedule, by where he commutes from his home in southern California, the Tesla plant in northern California, a new factory in Austin, and Texas Gulf Coast where SpaceX’s launch facility is located.

The post quotes anonymous “critics” who claim Tesla's quality has fallen "victim" due to Musk’s focus on Space X and other ventures.

“In interviews with a dozen current and former Tesla employees, investors and analysts, critics pointed to a series of questionable business moves, and even outright missteps by Tesla, as a potential symptom of the outside demands on Musk,” The Post states.

“They described a company where Musk is less present and increasingly isolated, where subordinates are reluctant to question the CEO’s vision, and where the de facto position entails eschewing market research."

The Post notes:

"It’s a top-down, shoot-by-the-hip ethos directed by Musk.”

“In response to emails seeking comment, Musk replied only: ‘Give my regards to your puppet master.’”

In February, Tesla submitted a regulatory filing stating:

“We are highly dependent on the services of Elon Musk, our Chief Executive Officer and largest stockholder.

"Although Mr. Musk spends significant time with Tesla and is highly active in our management, he does not devote his full time and attention to Tesla.”

Author of “Ludicrous: The Unvarnished Story of Tesla Motors,” Ed Niedermeyer told the Post, “There isn’t a culture at Tesla really other than ‘let’s do what Elon wants to do.’”

The Post called Musk’s critical comments of harsh lockdowns in California as a “public meltdown.”

Musk said at the time:

“To say that they cannot leave their house and they will be arrested if they do, this is fascist. This is not democratic — this is not freedom.”

Musk added it was a “no-win situation."

He has also described the global quarantines as “unethical” and “de facto house arrest,” RT reports.

Last year, Musk blasted Microsoft founder Bill Gates, stating that neither he nor his family would take a COVID-19 vaccine.

Musk blasted Gates during an appearance on the New York Times opinion podcast “Sway.”

“I’m not at risk, neither are my kids,” Musk told host Kara Swisher.
