“Elon Musk, let’s figure this out,” she said. “You owe me a couple cats.”
Spears recommended that Teslas emit noises that bother animals so they move out of the way. She suggested that this update would ensure that animals “aren’t caught off guard and things don’t end in a very tragic way.”
Spears later walked back her initial post in another Instagram post — which she also deleted. She said she “did not run over any cats” and Tesla is “not to be blamed,” several news outlets reported. The actress also made it clear that “user error is admittedly involved.”
Tesla did not immediately respond to CNN Business’ request for comment.
