Elon Musk is unhappy about his wikipedia page

Tesla CEO Elon Musk checked his wikipedia page for the first time in his life and he seems to be unhappy about the page. He tweeted, “Just looked at my wiki for 1st time in years. It’s insane!” Musk tweeted on Sunday, saying the page was “a war zone with a zillion edits.”

He also tweeted that he should not be introduced as an investor because he does zero investing. “Can someone please delete ‘investor.’ I do basically zero investing,” he wrote.

He also wrote that, “If Tesla & SpaceX go bankrupt, so will I. As it should be,” implying that most of his wealth is in the stocks of both companies.

The wikipedia described him as a technology engineer, entrepreneur and investor. But Musk claimed that he doesn’t own stakes in any companies other than those founded by himself, primarily Tesla and SpaceX.

After about 5 hours from his tweet, few wikipedia users deleted the word investor. After a short while another user replaced the word investor with “Business Magnet” as requested by Elon

Currently only the registered and confirmed users can edit Elon’s Wikipedia page (Semi Protection mode). 

But with this kind of response Wikipedia may consider upgrading it to the Full Protection mode which only allows the administrator to edit.
