After Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s attempts to challenge Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg to a duel, Tesla investors began to fear for Musk’s negative impact on the company’s reputation, writes Electrek.

After the incident, investors asked the board of directors (the only body capable of influencing Musk) to rein in the CEO.

Following Musk’s acceptance of the anti-Semitic comment about X, even more Tesla investors are calling on the board of directors to remove Musk.

Jerry Brackman, president of the First American Trust, urged the board to suspend Musk’s work for 30 to 60 days: “I believe in free speech, but there is no excuse for the CEO of a public company to spread hate.”

Several other prominent Tesla investors have made similar comments – some even going so far as to call on the board of directors to fire Musk.

However, the likelihood of this happening is extremely small. Tesla’s board has never commented on Musk’s emissions, much less influenced his work. The CEO is known to be very close to several members of the board of directors and has a lot of influence on the board of directors.
