jehugarcia : Screw the haters, Elon does more in a day than most of these critics in a lifetime. I think all this is necessary, you can't have the ups without the downs, and I think the next success will be the more sweeter coming off all this recent criticism. GO Elon!!!

HyperChange TV : amazing video Ben. echoes so many of the feelings i have about the recent twitter drama. i hope Elon sees this and takes your advice. execution will silence the haters ... name calling on twitter won't. sending ❤️ to everyone in the Tesla community fighting for a better future :)

David Pazdan : I disagree, I'd rather he be who he really is, on twitter. It gives us access to more minds. You're saying keep a muzzle on a thought leader, for your own investment's safety. I'm a tsla holder too but I'd rather not tell him to stop talking.

MeijinSensei : I don't think Elon should stop working or stop tweeting, he just needs to find better strategies for dealing with a lot of the hate he gets there on twitter and in the media. Most of his tweets are awesome, fun and entertaining for both his audience and himself.

Raamiz Abbasi : Ben Sullins you are a very nice man and I really hope Elon Musk sees this

Merv Johnson : I wonder if Elon is so over-stressed that he's coming apart a bit. After the Model 3 production is fixed, he should take a 3-month long vacation.

Derek Semmence : ELON MUSK FOR A NOBEL PEACE PRIZE. Who will second it?

Marshall Barrington : Never disagreed with a video more than this his Twitter is the best thing on the site (now with that said I do think he over stepped with the pedo comment)

Jeff Bommarito : Disagree Ben. Telling him / using the word "stop" ... doing xyz. Disagree with you on this one

DevotionsVisage : Personally I find Elon's twitter hilarious. Let the man defend himself against the media and the pedo guy.

Miz izHere : Also i find the post/blog quite arrogant, even if some of what hes said is true, asking him to step down temporarily as CEO? sorry who are you, to give advice on that. I'm sure you meant well, but that's not advice you should be giving, unless you're directly involved with Elon and know him well.

Mike Beard : I thought this was well thought out and well spoken until you got to the part asking Elon to quit tweeting about media bias, etc...I don't agree that Elon should stay silent on these issues, especially when they are directed at him, his employees, and everyone and everything connected with him. The average person does not actually understand that the media is biased, and can blatantly report false information. Everyone should be held accountable and I think it is great that Elon Musk refuses to be bullied. The latest personal attack is beyond any acceptable behavior and Elon rightfully blew a gasket. The time and expense so many put into helping out and expecting little to nothing in return, all to have it trashed by some media outlet looking for viewers, and a person who sees the opportunity to finally be in the spotlight. i tell my son to stand up for himself, and I hope everyone else will too. Vernon Unsworth didn't think ahead when he was basking in the glory of the spotlight. His personal activities in Chang Rai will now be scrutinized for a long time to come. Now that will be karma.

Luke Bowering : Boo hoo, let Elon be Elon. Seems to be working. People just like to feel smug like they are in some way better then Elon Musk because he said some off color things on twitter. Lots of people have said things online that they regret, not everyone has a microscope on them.

raine2005 : I'm one of those people who look to Elon as one of the last hopes for humanity. Great video

Raymond : I can’t speak for Elon, but I find it really patronizing when people keep telling Elon (or others in general) what to do. Can we just stop pretending to be the moral police and realize he was just joking around and accidentally crossed some lines?

Wesley Sigrist : Amen! I wish you had 15 million followers so he would see this.

Pikminiman : Strong disagree from me. Elon was way out of line with his "pedo" comment and subsequent doubling down, but it strikes me as hubris for anyone to tell Elon Musk, of all people, that they know better than he does what is best for his companies and his own well being.

Jeremy Harris : Well said Ben, you echo my sentiments exactly. I'm a huge Tesla/SpaceX/Elon fanboy, but it's obvious he really needs some time out to relax and unwind. I hope he gets to see this and heed the advice.

Merv Johnson : Ben, you're a good guy. I'm very mad at Muskwatch for throwing Elon under the bus for going through a rough patch.

blableka : dear elon musk, thanks for that free roadster !!

Reaganbites : Um. I agree with most of this, minus the worship.

James Locke : Couldn't disagree more Ben. He should not stop doing what drives him. He should be who he is. If he wants to push back and defend himself and his companies that's his right however given that he should be careful on comments that are in anger towards an individual like this so called expert diver attacking his ideas. We cannot keep doing the same thing and expecting a different result. Elon is someone who is able to analyze many different angles and offer educated and informed opinions that we should continue to hear, discuss and debate. We need to remember we are all human, we all make mistakes but we learn from them and move on. To ask Elon to retreat and not keeping pushing forward is the wrong approach.

This IS my name : Why don't you just marry him?

Antoine Thisdale : Thank you Ben. Thank you M. Musk.

Rick Deckard : Bad timing even for Elon to call someone who just helped saved 12 children a pedofile for not liking his fancy invention. Why even engage, that was childish and egocentric. I mean if you're going to help out of the kindness of your heart you shouldn't be looking for affirmation, just put it out there and let it go, heart is in the right place.

Djarms67 : As crossing the line with "pedo guy" comment it wasn't that bad and not even worth getting to butthurt over. We should have thicker skull skin petty comment on that. However, I do think Elon deserves a bit flack for what he said to the guy. Elon, First, What were you thinking, in calling Vern Unsworth "Pedo guy". I mean where did it come from because it just seems random and petite calling a British rescuer A Pedo Guy. Seriously Elon, You're the founder of SpaceX. Your not trump. My criticism for Vern, You don't need to sue over a stupid comment like pedo guy. Have a bit of thicker skin beside you do not need to fuel the stupid.

Mauri QHD : i disagree, he needs to be himself, and that includes ranting on twitter he needs to learn from it by himself

Gleb : expecting to see Elon comment in here.

EVPaddy : Good video. I'm just uploading a similar, albeit even a little more critical one in German right now. Elon has to calm down urgently…

sam guapo : I sympathize with Elon. He's trying to do good and then he's blamed for doing a "PR STUNT"? I don't blame him for calling the jabroni a PXXo guy. I've been in similar situations where I'm trying to do something positive and constructive for other people at no benefit to myself only to have some people view it negatively. I wish them all bad, and the good that I do, my revenge on these negative people. I agree that this twitter rant is a little off but not so much. I support Elon and I hope when he's a multi trillionaire, these naysayers will be poverty stricken.

Lisa : It's one thing to suggest standing down on Troll feeding and to temper himself (which Gene Munster did beautifully & pristinely with 'respect!' IMO). It's another to suggest quitting Twitter entirely, suggesting JB, etc. take over, take time away from running the companies, etc. Really? What about suggesting he check himself in to a psych institution or sequester himself on an island. Because he just got pissed off. Gene RESPECTED Elon. This is condescending (big time), aggrandizing the situation, patronizing, and lacks respectfulness to the man.

Thomas Gotthold : Wtf, even the sun have spots! Give the guy a break.

Robin Harrison : Well said. Elon has certainly made mistakes along the way but it's worth remembering the person who never made a mistake never made anything.

Joey Varacalli : Honestly I don't think it's a big deal that he made a joke just like the diver did so idk we should all just chill

Caliber : I've watched a lot of this guy's videos. But this is the one that made me subscribe.

Rykahnz : Well said Ben I think you've really shared what a lot of us have felt the last few days who care deeply about what Musk is doing I certainly feel that way and this has made me a little relieved for you to put this out there. I think Musk came to the same realization ever since that tweet he's tweeted nothing except a few tweets of articles pertaining to Tesla. I'm really starting to watch your channel more and more it's great content.

Thug Life : Ben ,you are a great man like Elon

stanley pena : I hope elon sees this...ben you should post this on elon’s Twitter 😊👍🏼

Andy : I agree Elon is a great guy and think he should stop tweeting That being said the diver is a jerk and a bit of a scuba-pedo with his. "I would rather embrace the kids and take them into tight caves by hand than try to use a sub" "Because you don't know what it's like down there in the deep water holding a young boy next to you as you guide him for hours.."

Clara Smith : This incident reminds me of a young boy who is relentlessly attacked by bullies at school. He's a good kid, sensitive, and respectful of others. He's a little different than other boys - smart, has a bit of a speech impediment, and his teachers like him. After coming home from school again with a bloody nose and soiled clothes, his dad, with concern and love in his heart, takes him aside and encourages him to stand up to bullies. Self defense is okay, he says. If a bully hits you, you need to hit back twice as hard. It's the only thing bullies understand. The next day, on the playground, our boy is kicked in the pants from behind by one of his antagonists. He turns around, looks his tormentor in the eye, and throws a punch to his face. The bully, shocked, cries out attracting the attention of a teacher. The bully complains loudly about being hit, and points to our boy accusingly. Our boy is scolded, told to apologize, and sent to the principal's office to await punishment. A satisfied smirk forms on the face of the bully as our boy walks off the playground under the stares of other kids, some hurling cat calls his way. The principal phones his father warning that his son's awful behavior will not be tolerated at school. Talk to him, make him understand how wrong it is, the principal tells him. When his son gets home later that day, head bowed in contrition, his father walks over, stoops down, and gives him a big hug. That's how to deal with bullies, son. It didn't stop the bullying, unfortunately, but every bully at school learned there's a price for picking on Elon.

Andy Peeters : Elon can defend himself but should try to not show the obvious present fustration. Further the battle is hard to win and more and more people will Enjoy going into a battle even if they loose 99% of the time... hell ya they got response from a top CEO and billionaire so they can feel important. Reporters and others should not be able to tell a lot of BULLs•*•* but as they are some fight back is necessary. Maybe a good thing would be to be really selective and choosing the battles. Get some lawyers and sue them all one by one and claim hughe money like millions Just to scare them off

Dick Martino : Ben. Make your own electric car and put Elon out of business. I trust you not to insult others.

exoace : great video Ben, can you talk about the $14,000 EV rebate in the province of Ontario for Canada? a lot of us have placed orders and the government cancelled the rebate, honouring it for customers who have ordered through a dealer and not for customers who have ordered through a manufacturer, almost intentionally excluding Tesla! Please help us raise awareness of this issue in hopes that it will get more visibility about the unfair treatment towards Tesla!

Wilson Chan : I like Elon because of him being him, out spoken, being a human, with emotions instead of only giving "official replies" like most, if not all, other CEOs. I like him replying to negative comments/news with to-the-point, no bull shit answers. I don't think he should stop doing what he's doing on Twitter. Sorry had to give my first thumb down, not because I don't like you Ben but I just can't agree with what you said. I do agree that he should take a break tho, he really needs one!

Dazraf : He insult one person who lied and insulted him first and now you think he should step down as the CEO? That's ridiculous.

Tesla di Murbox : Write to Elon sending the message that to reach a goal the shortest route is the straight line. As long as he deviates from his goal or "magnetizes" charge that does not belong to him, he will greatly delay actions for his intended and initially attained goals. I also hope he see this video.

Blue Red Yellow Green : He accused a dude of being a pedophile, just because he's thin skin was bruised.

Roland Ascarrunz : Ben, this is a beautiful message, delicately crafted from one intelligent man to another. I really do hope Elon sees it and acts positively on it. Thank you Ben for this letter to Elon.

Rodrigo Aleman : Ok. I hope that Elon listen your advice, better, our advice because we love all these Elon's project and I think that Elon have to ignore all these people who speaks bad of him without reason because they want destroy your dream, sorry, our dream, because milllions and millions of fans who follow your Twitter Instagram with great news, we hope that you have success, your projects will bring great advance, Mars, Hyperloop, electric cars, renewnable energy system, a new World for all us, you make the future possible. Impossible is nothing with you. Ignore Fake News, gossips, negative News an all these stuff. We need positive News, we need all your teams and you.

Patrick Hoffman : Id argue the suffering was probably necessary. Otherwise, I'm with you, he could use a break. Maybe get a full 8 hours of sleep.
