Liz Cantor gives Elon Musk serve about running over snake

LIZ Cantor yelled abuse at a driver she claims deliberately drove over a snake on the Gold Coast, not realising it was billionaire Tesla boss Elon Musk.

The Channel 7 Gold Coast presenter vented her frustration on Facebook on Friday, after seeing a grey Tesla swerve around a car that had stopped, with its hazard lights on, while the serpent crossed the road.

The Tesla then ran over the carpet snake.

"Absolutely mortified. If you see this asshole on the road give him the finger," she posted.

Cantor was so appalled that she later pulled up beside the Tesla and gave its driver a serve.

It was only later when Facebook friends pointed out that Musk was in town visiting ex-girlfriend Amber Heard, that Cantor recognised him.

"I can't believe I did that," she said.

"I asked him to wind down his window and then yelled at him face-to-face that it was a low act and asked him, 'Why would you do that?'

"He tried to say, 'I didn't see it,' but I replied 'Bullshit, I saw you drive for it.'

"I just really hate cruelty to animals."

The carpet snake survived the blow and slithered off the road.
