Hedge fund manager betting against Tesla gets box of short shorts from Elon Musk: ‘He is a man of his word!’

Greenlight Capital president David Einhorn tweeted Friday he got the pairs of short shorts that fellow billionaire Elon Musk promised him last week.

“I want to thank @elonmusk for the shorts. He is a man of his word!” Einhorn said in a tweet.

Einhorn added a tongue-in-check comment that the shorts “did come with some manufacturing defects,” he said.

The briefs battle royale began after Einhorn’s hedge fund said in a letter he was “happy that his Model S lease ended” and was replacing the car because of problems with the technology.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk seized the opportunity on Twitter, retorting that he would send Einhorn “a box of short shorts to comfort him through this difficult time.”

“Tragic,” Musk said in a tweet.

In the letter, Einhorn questioned Tesla investors, saying shareholders seemed to be backing the long-term growth of the company while Tesla appears to be focusing on “very short-term goals.” Musk has been active on Twitter this year, fighting back against investors betting against his stock and other detractors, often with controversial comments.
