Actor Alyssa Milano received criticism from Twitter users after she traded in her Tesla for a Volkswagen. Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, joined other users and mocked the actor over her remark. In response to Milano’s post in which she associated Tesla’s business model with “hate and white supremacy,” the users brought up Volkswagen’s early affiliations with the Nazi Party. The actor and her team have not yet responded to the criticism so far.
In her tweet posted on Saturday, Milano said, “I gave back my Tesla. I bought the VW ev. I love it. I’m not sure how advertisers can buy space on Twitter. Publicly traded companies’ products being pushed in alignment with hate and white supremacy doesn’t seem to be a winning business model.”
The tweet sparked a flood of responses from both her fans and other users. People started criticizing her for her choice of car.
Instead of immediately responding to the criticism, Milano reposted a tweet from @BJacksonWrites.
The tweet read, “My first tweet in a week to say that VolksWagon became a global brand after WW2 when it’s New leader REJECTED Nazism. Tesla became a global brand and its CEO now wants to ENABLE Nazism. These are not the same.”
