I recently viewed a video online of some young adults trying to Vandalize a Tesla that was charging in sentry Mode.It seemed like they targeted the car because it was
a Tesla. Didn't seem like electrocution was an issue with them, They must have a lot of faith in Tesla Engineering.
It got me to thinking about some of the reactions I had when I first Purchased my Model 3. I got Shade from my coworkers and even more comments on how EV's where BS and How my EV's burn even more fossil fuels, Etc. I have never purchased a car and had so many negative and aggressive reactions to the purchase. There is a whole camp out there that hates Tesla. They would rather hear the exhaust notes of a CMBE then think of the consequence to our environment and they spare no words in letting me know it.
Fact of the matter is. The feeling is mutual, Because when I have a motorcycle or car pull up to me with extra Loud Exhaust pipes I want to get out of my car and punch them in the face, Literally. to me its obnoxious and with good reason, You are forcing me to have to listen to your Bullsh-t. There are not two consenting parties, There is the loud obnoxious a-hole vrooom vroom vroom! and the people in proximity of the A-hole who may not share the enthusiasm for an extra Loud exhaust system purposefully installed for the sole purpose of letting everyone around you know that you are in fact present(https://southpark.cc.com/clips/254813/brub-brrub-brrrrub)
When I see a gas Guzzling performance car that gets 12 miles a gallon, I don't like it, But I sure as hell don't try to vandalize the Car because of it.
Where does all this Tesla Hate come from?
