Tesla’s top dog and Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk was caught green-handed smoking pot and guzzling whiskey on a live YouTube interview – but Musk’s high resulted in a low, causing a 9 percent drop in Tesla’s stock!
During a live interview on comedian Joe Rogan’s channel, Rogan offered Musk marijuana as he pulled out a joint! The two lit up in the studio, a joint in one hand while sipping whiskey in the other.
The show is filmed in a California studio and Rogan indicated that marijuana is just as legal as the whiskey they were guzzling down.
“So, is that a joint?” Musk asked just as Rogan started puffing away.
“It’s marijuana inside of tobacco,” Rogan told him, asking the head honcho “you probably can’t because of stock holders, right?”
“I mean it’s legal, right?” Musk asked. “Totally legal,” Rogan informed the automotive pioneer, who quickly replied “Ok!” as he snatched the joint and puffed away.
“You getting text messages from chicks?” Rogan asked Musk, who kept looking at his phone just minutes after getting high on the live interview.
Musk stuttered: “No, uh, I’m getting text messages from, from, friends, saying ‘what the hell are you doing smoking weed?’” as he smirked at Rogan. “I’m not a regular smoker of weed.”
Awkwardly for Musk, stock holders weren’t too thrilled and sold their shares, causing a 9 percent plunge in Tesla’s stock Friday morning.
“Good times with Joe Rogan,” the automotive mogul wrote on social media early Friday morning, blasting the link to the interview for his followers to watch.
Immediately following the social media frenzy, Tesla announced that its chief accounting officer, Dave Morton, resigned earlier this week citing intense public attention – but the quitting doesn’t stop with him – the company’s Human Resources chief, Gaby Toledano, is also leaving the company according to Bloomberg.
Musk didn’t immediately reply to Radar’s request for comment.
