    Elon Musk scolded Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg for how they handled fears about Facebook hurting democracies – declaring the billionaire has ‘a lot of work to do to restore public trust in Facebook itself,’ Your Content has learned.

    What’s more, Musk instructed his social media sidekick to delete both SpaceX and Tesla’s Facebook pages … but he allowed Instagram for the time being.

    “I’m, like, not pro-Facebook. I don’t have a Facebook page. SpaceX and Tesla deleted their Facebook pages. SpaceX and Tesla do have an Instagram, but I think it’s relatively harmless,” Musk told The Irish Times in an exclusive interview.

    “So I think Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg still have a lot of work to do to restore public trust in Facebook itself.”

    As Your Content readers know, the batty billionaire left investors terrified to the point where many auctioned off their shares in Tesla after believing the tech guru lost his mind following a bizarre twitter rant … where he vowed to hawk off all assets under his name, Your Content exclusively revealed, noting the 48-year-old billionaire admitted he will ‘own no home’ after this.

    “I am selling almost all physical possessions. Will own no house,” said Musk.

    Tesla shares surged 16% in the week through January 23, increasing Elon Musk’s net worth by $1.7 billion to $32 billion. But shares plummeted nearly 10 percent at 2 p.m. on May 1 — following the guru’s rant where he noted the company stock is way overpriced.

    “Tesla stock price is too high imo,” tweeted Musk.

    As of May 2020, he has a net worth of $39.4 billion and is listed by Forbes as the 23rd-richest person in the world. He is the longest tenured CEO of any automotive manufacturer globally.
