One of Tesla Inc.’s most outspoken bulls is sick of Elon Musk’s tweets costing investors money.

“I hope they take away his phone,” Ross Gerber, the chief executive officer of fund manager Gerber Kawasaki, said of Musk on Monday, after the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission asked a judge to hold the chief executive officer in contempt. The agency alleged the billionaire violated a settlement reached in September that required him to seek pre-approval from Tesla before posting material information on Twitter.
