Elon Musk can be like a toddler who has a temper of a toddler at times. This is what his former marketing chief has claimed in a BBC documentary titled The Elon Musk Show. The documentary chronicles the life of Musk and how he came to be the richest person in the world.

“I wasn’t seeing Elon- I was seeing this person has a temper ,that was taken by anger. It was so bizarre. Like a toddler that was having a tantrum about something, or upset about something.”
“There were moments when he would definitely get upset and you heard of him firing people on the spot. All of that happened,” said Bridgman who left the company in 2017 after 13 years.

Interestingly this habit of working late Musk was likely to have been cultivated from childhood as his mother Maye Musk said that she would often struggle to wake him up in the morning because he would stay up all night reading books.
Unfortunately, The Elon Musk Show will only be available in the United Kingdom according to BBC. There are currently two episodes that are already streaming on its iPlayer service.
