Musk put out a Tweet saying that Tesla had “too high” stock. This led to Tesla losing $14 billion worth of its market value. It also led to a personal loss to the stake of Musk by $3 billion.

The market valuation of Tesla was at $141 billion before his tweet which came down to 127. This was seen with a great deal of surprise by Twitter users who couldn’t comprehend why Musk would attempt this thing.

One Twitter user asked – “Are you doing it because you need the cash or is this to protest the world burning down?”

Musk replied – “Don’t need the cash. Devoting myself to Mars and Earth. Possession just weigh you down.”
