Elon Musk Gets Embroiled in Crypto Scam That Offers Tesla Model S

Elon Musk's big event flops  

This came during the long-awaited presentation of Tesla's first electric pick-up truck. Ironically, Sun's tweet coincided with a very embarrassing moment for Elon Musk. During the pompous presentation of the futuristic pick-up truck that took place in Los Angeles, California, the glass of "bulletproof" windows were smashed with a metal ball. 

"Well, maybe that was a little too hard," Musk exclaimed.    

It remains to be seen how investors will react to Musk's damage control attempt when the US stock market opens. Tesla's (NASDAQ: TSLA) shares doubled in price since reaching a bottom in July.

Justin Sun fails to collect likes 

Sun announced a Tesla giveaway back in Mach to much fanfare. After congratulating the first winner (@uzgaroth) on Twitter, he infamously decided to pick another one, which enraged the crypto community. After that, he decided to give away two Teslas to both winners to ensure transparency, but they received cash instead their luxurious electric cars.   

After the failed PR stunt, Sun is obviously facing backlash for to hype up the crypto community once again, but his tweet received a very lukewarm reception (with fewer just 600 likes). His followers claim that Sun has to deliver on his previous promise before organizing a new giveaway.
