Elon Musk apparently isn’t pleased with pressure the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration put on Tesla Inc. to conduct its 11th recall in the U.S. in just over three months.

Asked by a Twitter follower on Saturday what the rationale was for recalling a feature called Boombox, which enabled people to play sounds through an external speaker of their vehicle, Tesla’s chief executive officer replied: “The fun police made us do it (sigh).”
