Elon Musk Being A Dick Again

It's not so much that Tesla ripped off this guy's artwork. It's the way Elon Musk was a dick about it on Twitter to the artist's daughter after she called him out.

That unicorn image, which appeared on a mug enjoyed by Elon Musk, has since made its way into Tesla’s car user interface, and has been used to promote hidden features of Tesla’s cars in tweets from the company for over a year, all without permission from the original artist. Musk suggested, in now-deleted tweets, that the artist should be thankful of the “attention” brought to the work.
