Elon Musk got into the weirdest fight over a farting unicorn

  Elon Musk got into the weirdest fight over a farting unicorn Elon Musk has become embroiled in a copyright dispute over a picture of a farting unicorn. 

When Musk claimed this week on Twitter that a proposed future Tesla pickup will parallel park automatically, have 360-degree cameras and sonar, Mike Levine, Ford 's head of product communications, quickly pointed out that the F-150 -- a real production vehicle

Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently found himself on the receiving end of a snappy retort from Detroit, after describing Ford ’s energy as similar to a “morgue.” In a response on Twitter , Mark Truby, Ford ’s Vice President of Communications, fired back at Musk, throwing some shade at the electric car maker’s

Elon Musk naturally took to Twitter to share the news, which was fine until the Chairman & CEO of Ford of Europe partook in some extremely cheeky subtweeting action.

Plenty of people came to Tesla's defense, some of whom suggested that Ford has been at this for decades longer, which is a fair argument.

It's worth keeping in mind that Tesla still has over four hundred thousand Model 3s to produce, and they have announced that production will increase to six thousand vehicles per week in the near future. If the workload reports are to be believed, what are they going to look like when output increases?

CNBC also reported that the company has asked Model 3 reservation holds for an additional $US2,500 per vehicle, but with no delivery date. This isn't the first time that Tesla has asked for additional cash from its customers who, to their credit, truly believe in the product.

While Steven Armstrong's dig on Twitter may not be particularly professional, it elicited some much-needed giggles when the cracks are well and truly showing over at Tesla.
