Unbelievable, but believable. A first-world Hunger Strike for 24-hours by Norwegian Tesla Owners? Then their Lord makes fun of their efforts? If you’re not laughing out loud, then you’re too think-skinned and maybe the member of a cult? Gotta say, Musk won this round, with cruel humor.

A Norwegian group carried out their protest after saying they have found multiple faults with their electric vehicles. The protest lasted for 24 hours, starting on Saturday, August 27 at 11:00 a.m. and ending Sunday morning.
A list of alleged complaints includes poor customer service, rust, and bubbles in seats. The drivers spelled out the word ‘help’ with their vehicles.
After news of the hunger strike began appearing on social media, Tesla boss Elon Musk tweeted about fasting, writing: “On advice of a good friend, I’ve been fasting periodically & feel healthier.” Some involved in the protest saw it as a “cruel subtweet” in reference to their actions.
