In a tearful Instagram post, actress and activist Alyssa Milano accused Elon Musk, the billionaire founder of Tesla and SpaceX, of ruining her life.

Known for her roles in TV shows like “Charmed” and her outspoken political activism, Milano revealed she invested heavily in Tesla stock in hopes of supporting clean energy and fighting climate change.
However, he claims that Musk’s recent controversial statements and actions have caused the stock to fall, causing him massive financial losses.
“I trusted Elon Musk, I really did,” Milano cried in the Instagram video. “But now he has gone and ruined everything. He’s been making lewd jokes on Twitter, sending rockets into space and generally completely destroying my portfolio.
Milano blamed Musk for her recent career setbacks, citing a lack of roles and job offers after the stock market crash. She lamented, “I used to be America’s sweetheart, but now nobody wants to work with me because of Elon Musk.”
Some have criticized Milano’s comments, stating that investing in the stock market comes with inherent risks and that Musk’s actions should not be the sole factor in financial decisions.
Others have suggested that Milano’s public breakdown may have been a publicity stunt or an attempt to avoid blame for her own financial decisions.
In response to the backlash, Milano has doubled down on her allegations, even calling for a boycott of all Tesla products.
“We need to send a message to Elon Musk that he cannot and will not get away with ruining people’s lives,” he announced in a follow-up Instagram post.
Meanwhile, Musk has yet to respond to Milano’s allegations, perhaps because he is too busy launching rockets, designing electric cars, and developing the future of human civilization on Mars.
