A shareholder has called on CEO Elon Musk’s board of directors to suspend him over his anti-Semitic comments.
According to CNN on the 20th (local time), Jerry Brachman, president of investment firm First American Trust, said in a statement, “I believe in freedom of expression, but there is no excuse for a CEO of a public company to spread hate.” He claimed this.
Zebrachman argued that the Tesla board should require CEO Musk to leave his job for 30 to 60 days and receive empathy training or therapy.
He said, “Musk’s wealth, technology and ability are not an excuse to forgive his remarks. Rather, it only amplified Musk’s evil nature.”
First American, headquartered in Santa Ana, California, held 16,000 shares of Tesla stock as of the end of September.
Musk owns 411 million shares (about 13% of total shares as of the end of March).
Separately, the voices of Tesla shareholders opposing Musk’s anti-Semitic remarks are growing louder.
