Some type of logic is hard to follow. Logic offered by Britney Spears’ sister, Jamie Lynn Spears is definitely one of them. In a now deleted video, Jamie Lynn Spears accused Elon Musk of the unimaginable. She claims Tesla is a “secret cat killer” and Elon Musk owes her a “couple of cats”. What? I hear you ask? Is Jamie Lynn admitting to having run over some cats or is she blaming Elon Musk for designing a car that has actually helped reduce that awful traffic noise.
In an Instagram video that was subsequently deleted, Jamie Lynn talks about what she believes to be a serious problem with Tesla cars, she says;
"I know there are bigger things to worry about in the world right now but somebody has got to let Elon Musk know that the Tesla is a secret cat killer and it's a problem that we really gotta fix."
"We have now lost, I don't even want to tell you how many cats, because they don't hear the Tesla crank and unfortunate things happen and it's really devastating and tragic for everyone involved."
She then goes on to make her own recommendation on how to fix this problem, come up with a sound that only animals can hear.
"That way they know something's happening and they aren't caught off guard and things don't end in a very tragic way," she adds.
"Elon Musk, let's figure this out. You owe me a couple of cats."
She does go on to admit that perhaps it is the responsibility of the driver to make sure animals are not harmed stating that there is some "user error involved" but that Musk should "collaborate to save some cats' lives."
After receiving backlash and with good reason for being a cat killer, she goes on to explain on her Instagram.
"1.) I did not run over any cats. 2.) TESLA is not to be blamed, and was never intended to be 3.) user error is admittedly involved. 4.) we always check for animals before moving a vehicle. 5.) I was only making a suggestion about something I think would be extremely helpful, and the geniuses at @teslamotors are the best to go."
Under the US Highway code, Tesla is actually asked to emit some noise above 43 decibelswhen the car is faster that 18.6mph to ensure those that are visually impaired are able to recognise nearby hybrid vehicles.
Not sure about you but I for one am pleased that Elon Musk has created technology to make cars silent, if only noise pollution on trains and underground could be reduced. Those living in big cities would certainly appreciate it.
