Tesla CEO Elon Musk repeatedly expressed his frustration with a lawyer interviewing him during a June 1 deposition, calling him “a shameful person” and other insults.
“You seem like a very, very bad person. Just a bad human being,” Musk said. “And I hope you come to regret your actions in the future, but you probably won’t. And that’s sad.”
Musk suggested that his irritation stemmed from a belief that the lawyer’s conduct represented an effort to undermine the work Tesla has done to promote sustainable energy.
The tone of Musk’s comments was reflective of his brash personality, and echoed prior exchanges with financial analysts, reporters, and critics.
The deposition was part of a 2016 lawsuit filed by Tesla shareholders alleging that the members of Tesla’s board of directors, which included Musk at the time, acted in their own best interests, rather than in those of Tesla’s investors, when they approved the $2.6 billion acquisition of the solar-panel company SolarCity in 2016.
