The Global Times reported that Huawei senior executive, Su Jing has been removed due to “inappropriate remarks” about Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA). The former executive publicly said in early July at the World Artificial Intelligence Conference that "Tesla has had a very high accident rate in the past few years, and the accident types are very similar from the killing of the first person to the most recent one."
Su Jing also said: "I use the word 'killing' in this place. It may sound serious to everyone. But think about it, when the machine enters the human society and the human symbiosis, the machine will definitely cause the accident rate. It is ugly. The point is "killing", just saying that we want to reduce its accident probability as low as possible. In terms of probability, this is a possible thing."
There was some speculation following the comments that suggested Tesla might take Huawei to court over the remarks.
