Musk also said that Tesla was still closing some stores, despite whipsawing reports of closures, freezes, and stores remaining open, over the last two weeks.

Some retail stores that didn't close were told to stop booking test drives last week. You have what's coming to you for the lies you have told to the public and investors, Tripp wrote.
