Tesla Removes Disney+ In Escalating Feud Between Musk and Iger


Tensions look like escalating within the feud between Elon Musk and Disney CEO Bob Iger.

Electrical car information web site Electrek experiences that Tesla has eliminated the Disney+ app from a few of the car’s infotainment techniques. Some Tesla house owners have verified this story, leaving bewildered posts on social media about Disney+’s sudden disappearance.

“I can verify that Disney+ has been faraway from my Tesla Mannequin S,” tweeted Complete Mars Catalog.

“I’m not feeling good about this resolution. Should not it’s free will, if folks determine to show away from Disney?” wrote @enriquemoreno.

Musk vs. Iger

If true, the transfer is available in response to Disney pausing its promoting on Musk’s social media platform ‘X’ after he appeared to endorse a contentious antisemitic idea on-line.

A livid Musk lashed out at Disney (and CEO Bob Iger) throughout an interview on the New York Occasions‘ Dealbook Summit, saying that he wouldn’t be blackmailed by company cash.

“Go F$% your self,” he mentioned on the time.

Now Tesla CEO Musk seems to be placing some chew behind his bark, limiting entry to Disney+ for some Tesla drivers. In line with Electrek, not all Tesla house owners had been affected by the blackout—solely those that by no means used the app earlier than.

Nonetheless, the feud has left some Tesla drivers fairly testy.

For instance, an X person named @teslahoe tweeted: “So Disney+ has now been faraway from Tesla automobiles. I am assuming that is in retaliation to Disney pulling promoting from X (which they’ve each proper to do). So now I, as a mother, get to cope with telling my toddlers we will not watch Disney+ whereas in our Tesla and cope with their upset emotions as a result of 2 grown males cannot have a civil dialogue and transfer on.”
