Nah, he wasn't asleep. He was showing off, pretending to sleep. Probably a pretty typical Tesla owner. Look at me, look at me!

Though you might not like the irony of his post, you are forced to admit that the guy sleeping in his car is acting dangerously. He is a danger for himself and for the rest of the people. Yet to be fair we don't know whether he did it by purpose. Many people have highway accidents because they fail asleep. Then again many if not most of luxury car companies, now put systems that will awake you in case you fall asleep. On the other side, Musk call his system autopilot and communicates as if it was mature the result is many people get over confident in it.
This kind of difference, is probably one of the reasons why Teslas have 3X more fatal accidents than other luxury brands in the US. And I daresay this is encouraged by Musk's speech.

I’m not “forced” to admit anything. The guy was a moron. That has nothing to do with Tesla.

So you admit the guy is a moron. This I can agree with.
I will go even a little bit further. Given the number of videos photos or fatal accident they prove people are letting autopilot drive uncontrolled, there is obviously an epidemic of stupidity in Tesla drivers, and in my opinion this epidemic comes from Musk’s speech.

They're going to have to require sleeping sensors on all drivers on all car makes using the auto-pilot feature. Maybe a brief medical implant procedure at the dealership.

Ridiculous, I “admit”? This was never in question. There are millions of miles of safe autopilot use. A couple of morons doesn’t prove it is unsafe, that it is Tesla’s fault and in no way supports your “epidemic” claim.

Unlike Musk claims Tesla’s are less safe than other recent luxury class. There are numbers that prove it. They are 3x more likely to have a deadly accident.

How many people have been proven or did we see having the autopilot without being behind the wheel or without looking at the road?

Morons are 3 times more like to have a deadly accident. Millions of safe miles under autopilot are driven by responsible drivers.

You are wrong. Post facts to prove otherwise.

So, it appears that Tesla drivers are 3 times more likely to be morons. Thanks for that.

Drivers of all other types cars are 10 times more likely to be morons also. It's great to make blanket statements.

The first comparison was drivers of luxury cars of recent vintage. That is a distinct subset of drivers, wealthier, older, and more conservative (in behavior, not politically). That is a valid comparison.
Your 10 times takes into account all drivers of all ages and types of cars as well as drivers. That is an apples to oranges comparison and means nothing.
