Elon Musk is clearly not a fan of director Alex Gibney’s upcoming documentary about him, telling one of his fans on Tuesday that the film will be “a hit”. Naturally, Gibney disagrees with that opinion and said so in a curt response to Musk’s tweet a few hours later.
“How would you know,” Gibney tweeted at the billionaire.
Gibneywho is behind films like “Taxi to the Dark Side”, “Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room” and “The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley”, is working on his latest production “Musk”.
The Emmy and Oscar-nominated documentary maker described the upcoming documentary as “a definitive, unvarnished examination of multi-billionaire tech entrepreneur Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, SpaceX and Twitter.”
There are also few different production companies working on this project including Jigsaw Productions, Closer Media, Anonymous Content and Double Agent – who are also funding the project.
News of the documentary and Musk’s annoyance with it comes on the same day as the Twitter CEO apologized for publicly mocking a disabled employee who was unsure if he had been fired and tweeted directly at Musk after the company’s human resources department stopped communicating with him. It also comes just a day after the site experienced a major outagejust one of the increasingly frequent technical issues that have plagued Twitter since Musk took over.
