The day before, during a Tesla conference call, the billionaire described quarantine orders in the United States as “fascist,” saying they would lock people up in their homes.
“To be honest, I would call it the forced detention of people in their homes against all of their constitutional rights,” he said at the Tesla meeting. “They are terribly and wrongly violating people’s freedoms. What the hell … sorry. Outrage. Outrage.”
Although the American public continues to strongly support most of the social distancing measures, the billionaire has become particularly noisy on social media, as there have been protests for closure in various US states. Earlier this week, he asked those responsible to publish “FREE AMERICA NOW” in a tweet that was not removed.
Last week, Tesla opposed California’s instructions to keep its employees to a minimum until May 4, and announced that some of its employees would return to work on April 29. But on Tuesday, the company said it would cancel these plans.
On Wednesday, the company announced a surprise profit in the first quarter of 2020, despite being forced to close its main plant in California due to the coronavirus crisis.
