Elon Musk admits it’s ‘wrong’ and ‘dangerous’ for people to be using his so-called ‘flamethrower’ which Mush also admits is nothing more than a ‘roofing torch with a rifle stock attached to it.’

The 47-year-old business magnate told Joe Rogan host of Joe Rogan Experience podcast on Thursday that the whole idea was initially just a “joke” but ultimately became a product of The Boring Company which Musk also admits he basically started pretty much as a joke.

Musk’s gimmick landed him the sale of a 20,000 unit limited edition run which grossed The Boring Company $10 million in 4 days.

After Musk’s appearance on Joe Rogan Experience Tesla stock plummeted 9% in one day.

Musk plans to one day build an underground very high-speed transit system on the west coast and Chicago.
