Elon Musk Denies That He Told A Tesla Employee To Miss His Child’s Birth
Ashlee Vance’s new book, “Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX and the Quest for a Fantastic Future,” is making headlines again.
Three weeks ago, Vance’s book, with its claim that Tesla almost sold to Google back in 2013, made waves across the media. Now, it’s a child-birth related quote attributed to Elon Musk that is making headlines from Vance’s book.
The quote, as posted over at the Washington Post, reads:
“That is no excuse. I am extremely disappointed. You need to figure out where your priorities are. We’re changing the world and changing history, and you either commit or you don’t.”
The quote, attributed to Musk, come via “an anonymous Tesla employee recalling an e-mail from Musk after missing an event to witness the birth of his child.”
Elon Musk immediately took to Twitter to shoot down the “total BS” quote.
Musk says that of the 22 quotes posted over at Washington Post, 2 need correcting.
