SpaceX, Tesla CEO Elon Musk Drops Bizarre Rap Remix 'RIP Harambe'

An American flag is reflected in the grill of a Tesla Model S

Elon Musk is following up his very messy 2018 with an equally bad musical release to kick off this spring.

Judge Nathan seemed frustrated by the entire situation, stating that she had "serious concerns that, whatever I decide here, the issue will not be finally resolved". U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan is scheduled to hear further arguments about the case during a hearing scheduled Thursday in NY.

"Everybody take a deep breath, put your reasonableness trousers on and work this out", Nathan said.

Musk said he was "happy" with the judge's analysis as he left the court, the Washington Post reported. The SEC also asked the judge to force Musk to check in regularly with the SEC to prove his compliance with the terms of his deal with the agency.

"He actually does what he is told", Hueston said.

He tweeted about the track between tweets about the Tesla Semi. That tweet last August sent the company's stock on a wild ride.

Instead, the regulator suggested that greater oversight of Musk's communications, including the threat of new fines if he backslides, was punishment enough, at least for now.

Nord LB analyst Frank Schwope called the numbers "more shocking than disappointing" and said there remain doubts whether Tesla could deliver 400,000 cars this year.

These are the tweets the SEC says are in violation of Musk's agreement not to tweet about materials which could impact Tesla shareholders without permission.

Musk's lawyers are expected to argue that the SEC is violating Musk's constitutional right to free speech and that he is a victim of "concerning and unprecedented overreach on the part of the SEC". That much is clear.

Hueston said further restricting Musk's ability to communicate about his company and imposing fines would "freeze his ability" to operate as an effective entrepreneur.

Musk was in federal court in NY for a hearing on charges of contempt requested by the SEC, the chief Wall Street regulator, which argued that Musk violated an October 2018 settle over securities fraud when he tweeted inaccurate production forecasts on February 19, 2019 despite agreeing to stop using Twitter to make statements about Tesla without the company's approval.

"We're not saying "yes" or 'no, '" she responded. Musk also cautioned on Tesla's Jan. 30 earnings call that seasonality would come into play in the first quarter, with auto sales tending to be lowest in January and February and picking up in March.

"The parties should be meeting, conferring and providing some clarity so this issue won't happen again", Hueston said.

Musk remains an outspoken critic of the SEC.

Tesla revealed this week that the company delivered 63,000 vehicles in the first quarter, missing analyst expectations of 64,000 vehicles.

Tesla Inc. CEO Elon Musk (C) exits after attending for an S.E.C. hearing at the Manhattan Federal Courthouse in New York, April 4, 2019.

Others used this opportunity to complain about Tesla.
