An unhappy Tesla owner has been kicked out of the Shanghai Auto Show because she was protesting by standing on top of one of the Model 3s on show.

Reports and videos have gone viral showing the protest in action as a lady stands on top of a Model 3 at the Shanghai Auto Show and shouts to the crowd. It is unknown at this stage what the lady was upset about, but we believe it is to do with a known case already in the public domain.

The woman can be seen wearing a t-shirt which reportedly reads "Brake Lost Control" or "car brakes don't work." The woman was also reportedly shouting "Tesla brake lost control."

According to Bloomberg, the security guards attempted to hide the message on her shirt by using umbrellas. However, this didn't work and they ended up having to drag her away from the scene.

The Bloomberg article explains that Tesla is already aware of this protestor and that she's already known for protesting against Tesla. Apparently she started by live-streaming her concerns near Tesla's booth at the Shanghai show before deciding to climb on top of the car.

Unfortunately, we do not know much more about the situation at this stage, but will keep you updated as the plot thickens.

  • This very protestor was a Tesla Model 3 owner whose whole family of 4 almost got killed in a highway accident when the brake did not respond. In the aftermath Tesla claim it's because female driver couldn't press the brake hard enough. And another time the same things happened, they blamed the ABS, and then the maintenance. Their attitude is enough to piss people off and her protest is totally justified as it IS our opinion on Tesla right now.

    • I heard that Tesla found that she was speeding which is why the brakes took longer to work

  • Has she been seen and/or heard from again? I mean, it is China... They don't really like people protesting anything.

    • Yeah, that's the big "oh shite" part of this thing. Go even just a millimetre off the party line and you lose BIG time with their social credit system. This stunt? Work camp, straight away.

      <alright, that's enough politics>

    • Yes, and she went viral, and Chinese people are furious about Tesla's arrogant attitude in this *series* of accidents and the central government will have a "talk" with Tesla.
