The letter was published on 16 June, criticising Elon Musk’s behaviour in public and online, as well as criticising the leadership of the company.

The letter was shared with more than 2,500 employees via an internal chat system, where employees were asked to sign the letter.

They also described Musk’s behaviour in the “public sphere” as a frequent source of “distraction and embarrassment” for them.

They also cited SpaceX president Gwynne Shotwell’s “No a-holes” company policy, saying that the SpaceX leadership was not applying the policy equally.

Following this, up to 5 employees were fired because of the letter, with Shotwell releasing a letter of her own saying that the writers had “pressured” their colleagues into signing something that “didn’t reflect their views”, according to The Verge.
