Rage Against The Machine: "Killing In The Name" of driving a Tesla!

There are a lot of people who are still warming up to the idea of EVs. But, there are also people who outright hate them. So much so that they attack the silent cars. This, for some reason, is especially true for Tesla the most. We’ve seen loads of incidents in the past wherein Tesla cars are attacked in the parking lots, where superchargers are blocked and destroyed, and verbal abuses to the owners driving them. But, another video has now come to light that tops it all and might be the scariest incident to date. A Tesla Model 3 owner was recently a victim of road rage that lasted 20 minutes, and reportedly, didn’t get any help from the cops either.

What Exactly Happened?


The video was uploaded by Wham Baam Teslacam wherein a Tesla Model 3 owner, Gunnawut, was a victim of Tesla hate.

Gunnawut was picking up food from a fast-food joint’s drive-thru and listening to loud music in his car. This probably irked some pickup truck owners, who then started bullying the Tesla owner.

The verbal abuse soon escalated to fits of rage as the truck drivers started throwing things at Gunnawut‘s car as he started to leave. They didn’t spare him even after he left the parking lot. They followed him for nearly 20 minutes, with the aggression just getting worse with every passing minute. At one of the lights, they even threw something heavy at him which was caught by the Tesla cam and could be a rock.

Gunnawut tried to get into a parking lot on two different occasions to shrug them off, but the drivers instead tried to trap him by coordinating with each other. He then went on to call 911, but the operator didn’t find this to be “urgent” and didn’t send help despite Gunnawut persuading the operator that it is urgent. The operator asked if he was hurt, to which Gunnawut said not yet. But, the operator didn’t send any help. Finally, after 20 minutes of hot pursuit, he was able to fend them off without the police’s help even though the operator was on the call with him the whole time.

Gunnawut proceeded to the police station where he had to wait for hours before the cops informed him they weren’t going to do anything about it and refused to watch the Teslacam footage. But, he convinced them to make a formal report. Two officers came to his house later, watched the video, and told him they’ll look into it. But he’s yet to hear back from them.

We have seen Tesla hate videos in the past, but this one definitely tops the list. Watch the video below and let us know your thoughts about it in the comments section.
