SpaceX is said to have fired a number of employees after they wrote and shared a letter criticizing the behavior of major shareholder and CEO Elon Musk.
The message was shared publicly and as the US website The Verge first discovered, Musk’s behavior is described as a “recurring source of distraction and embarrassment” for employees, especially in the recent times that employees think of at the time.
In addition, employees cite SpaceX’s “No Asshole” regulations and require the company to publicly address and “condemn Elon’s malicious behavior on Twitter.”
“As our CEO and featured speaker, Elon is seen as the face of SpaceX – every tweet Elon sends is a de facto public statement from the company. It’s critical to make it clear to our teams and to our potential talent that his message does not reflect our work, mission, or values.”
Tone deaf answer
The employees may have been hoping for support from the company’s president, Gwen Shotwell, and instead the boss sent an email writing that SpaceX had “terminated a number of employees who were involved” in designing the letter, The Verge wrote.
The president added that “the speech, the calls, and the general process made employees feel uncomfortable, intimidated, intimidated and/or angry because the letter pressured them to sign something that did not reflect their views,” adding:
“We have a lot of cash work to do and I don’t need that kind of hyperactivity.”
In addition to the “employee number”, it is unclear how many people have been laid off.
In a comment to The Verge, an employee, who wished to remain anonymous but was involved in drafting the letter, contacted Shotwell in an email with a “deaf tone” and claims the letter was the result of months of hard work and getting feedback from employees..
