Here’s what many of your M3 modules look like before and after, because they are generally reworked! Aren’t they beautiful? pic.twitter.com/QyoM0K2ozf

Are any of these VIN’s YOUR car? If so, you have a module(s) that IS punctured/dented/damaged. #TSLA #TSLAQ @elonmusk (Subsidy Fraud-Boy) pic.twitter.com/pOZWDeeXcO

Unfortunately, you can’t see the embedded tweet because @trippedover account is deleted. Tripp tweeted of a lot which he claims Tesla keeps wastes instead of in a climate controlled room.

Hmmm.. #TSLA commented several times that all their scrap/waste is being stored in climate controlled warehouses…could this be true?! Let these pics speak for themselves: HUNDREDS of trailers at the new parking lot at GF1… pic.twitter.com/4Agz80j5Ow

A Tesla spokesperson responded to the case:

“As we’ve said before, these claims are false and Mr. Tripp does not even have personal knowledge about the safety claims that he is making. No punctured cells have ever been used in any Model 3 vehicles in any way, and all VINs that have been identified have safe batteries. Notably, there have been zero battery safety issues in any Model 3.”

Claims that Tripps account was hacked was also debunked by an attorney for Tripp.

Stuart Meissner, an attorney for Tripp, told new outlets on Thursday that Tripp’s Twitter account was not hacked or compromised. Tripp tweeted the images on his own, Meissner said. Meissner originally told CNBC Wednesday night that he doubted the authenticity of Tripp’s tweets.
