Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk has bashed the online encyclopedia Wikipedia, termed it as insane and a war zone.

According to details, Wikipedia for over the years has been a helping hand around the world on only for students but each and every person in the world.

Its been quite a go tool for the users to find out about the information of renowned people.

Technology entrepreneur and Tesla founder Elon Musk recently took to Twitter to reveal his thoughts on his Wikipedia page, which he claims to have read Sunday for the first time in “years.”

“Just looked at my wiki for 1st time in years. It’s insane! Btw, can someone please delete ‘investor’. I do basically zero investing,” Musk tweeted.

“If Tesla & SpaceX go bankrupt, so will I. As it should be,” he wrote in the same thread.

Musk further elaborated in a response to a user’s reaction to his initial comments.

Musk’s jab at the inaccuracy of Wikipedia may not be unfounded.

A 2015 Forbes report concluded that the accuracy of Wikipedia mixed.

When compared to Encyclopedia Britannica, the report found that Wikipedia was more biased and left-leaning.

Of course, Live Science found that the pair  roughly similar in terms of accuracy.

The publication also noted a 2008 study that found Wikipedia to have an accuracy rate of about 80 percent compared to the 95 to 96 percent of other sources, noting that such a result is “not bad” for a crowd-sourced encyclopedia.
