Tesla is known for responding to celebrities who tweet about problems with its product. Last year, the actress Mary McCormack garnered much attention in Hollywood when she tweeted that her husband’s Tesla had abruptly burst into flames.
@Tesla This is what happened to my husband and his car today. No accident,out of the blue, in traffic on Santa Monica Blvd. Thank you to the kind couple who flagged him down and told him to pull over. And thank god my three little girls weren’t in the car with him pic.twitter.com/O4tPs5ftVo

Last week, the celebrity jeweler Ben Baller got locked inside his Tesla. The car doors simply wouldn’t open, and he was forced to slip out of the trunk after waiting for Tesla’s service people for almost an hour. Baller once made Tesla CEO Elon Musk a $37,000 ring to celebrate the company.
Baller explained his predicament in the video below. (Warning: There is some foul language.)
Tesla posted two consecutive quarters of profitability for the first time in its history last year amid the success of its Model 3 car. In January, Musk said the company would be profitable going forward but has since reversed that statement, citing weak demand for more expensive versions of the Model 3. Musk has now said Tesla may turn a profit in the second quarter of 2019.
He then said a cheaper version of the car would be available by midyear, but analysts worry that the margins on the cheaper car could do more harm to Tesla’s balance sheet.
