SpaceX: Social Media Roast Free Speech Advocate Musk


Fair or unfair?

Stifling free speech or a response to workplace bullying?

The SpaceX controversy spilled into social media as commenters posted their thoughts about SpaceX, the rocket company founded by Tesla  (TSLA) – Get Tesla Inc. Report CEO Elon Musk, which fired several employees for writing a letter blasting the world’s richest man as “a frequent source of distraction and embarrassment.”

The employees were complaining about Musk’s public behavior and his activity on Twitter  (TWTR) – Get Twitter Inc. Report, which he agreed to acquire for $44 billion, while also threatening to walk from deal to purchase the microblogging site.
