The same person who is on a quest to buy Twitter for the purpose of “protecting free speech” was seemingly displeased by a letter that called his conduct on the platform “a constant source of distraction and embarrassment,” prompting a letter from SpaceX president Gwynne Shotwell that excoriated anyone who dared to criticize their billionaire leader.

Shotwell, according to a copy of the letter obtained by the Verge, claimed that the “letter, solicitations and general process made employees feel uncomfortable, intimidated and bullied,” even though employee accounts said that large swaths of the staff endorsed the contents of the letter publicly on an internal Microsoft Teams chat.

“It is critical to make clear to our teams and to our potential talent pool that his messaging does not reflect our work, our mission, or our values,” the initial letter reads. 

Shotwell also wrote that the letter-writing campaign violated the company’s “documented handbook policy.”

Musk did not respond to any of the criticisms leveled against him on Twitter, instead opting to continue his crusade against the “negative” news media and retweet PR for SpaceX’s launches. He also opted to have his No. 2 send the letter about firing employees, despite being the subject of criticism.

The number of fired employees is unclear.
