Elon Musk eats humble pie over unpaid bakery bill

Elon Musk has stepped in to foot the bill for 4,000 mini pies after his firm cancelled an order at the last minute. Giving Pies bakery in San Francisco was left $2,000 (£1,500) out of pocket when Tesla backed out just before delivery. But when the small business took to social media to complain, Mr Musk said he would stump up the dough.

He even had Tesla place a new order – but the bakery said it was now so flooded with business from well-wishers it was too busy to take it on.

“It’s incredible, I’m blown away,” Voahangy Rasetarinera, the owner of the San Jose bakery, told NBC.

“I’m so grateful, it’s amazing, people are amazing.”

Her response came after Mr Musk took to social media to resolve the dispute.

“Just hearing about this,” he said in a post on X, formerly Twitter, responding to a local news story about Tesla cancelling the order.

“Will make things good with the bakery. People should always be able to count on Tesla trying its best.”
