Tesla CEO Elon Musk said in an interview with Recode published on Friday that he “probably” wouldn’t take an investment from Saudi Arabia in the wake of journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s death.
Saudi Arabia’s government has been under intense scrutiny since Khashoggi, a journalist who had written critically about the Saudi government Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was killed in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul in early October.
Khashoggi’s death has prompted questions about the role Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund has played in financing American businesses and the ethics of taking investments from governments with reputations for violating human rights.
