San Francisco: Tesla CEO Elon Musk has courted controversy after approving adult actor Taylor Jackson’s sex act with a guy in the driver’s seat when riding an Autopilot-enabled Tesla car.
Jackson uploaded the act on adult entertainment portal pornhub and tweeted: “Holy shit, I made @Tesla the #1 search on pornhub. ”
Musk, who is facing scrutiny from the US regulators over his irresponsible tweets, invited controversy.
“Turns out there are more ways to use Autopilot than we imagined,” he replied to Jackson late on Thursday. “Shoulda has seen it coming. ”
His tweets sparked jokes, memes, GIFs, and criticism about the platform.
“I adore Teslas, but I honestly hope you don’t do that again. Life is a gift and it’s often too brief to perform risky stuff,” tweeted an individual.
Porbhub also tweeted: “Reporting you (Jackson) to Elon for not having two hands on the wheel with autopilot enabled. ”
All autopilot crashes so far involved motorists prepared to control the vehicle at any time and couldn’t stop the accidents.
A pedestrian was killed in 2018 with a self-driving Uber while the driver was seeing content streaming service Hulu.
Tesla has made it clear that its autopilot technology may ’t be used with no driver input.
Tesla is also being sued by the family of Wei “Walter” Huang, a software engineer who died when his Model X with Autopilot crashed into a street security barrier in 2018.
On the other hand, after weeks of negotiation with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) over his contentious Twitter actions, Musk has agreed to more specific supervision on his tweets about the business.
According to the settlement all tweets from Musk about Tesla’s fiscal health, delivery or sales numbers would have to be pre-approved by a business attorney.
But a tweet on a sex act inside a Tesla? No clarity on that.
