Business Insider reports that Elon Musk may have alienated some of his liberal fans with a donation to a conservative cause.

The Tesla and SpaceX CEO donated $38,900 last month to Protect the House. The political committee is dedicated to helping Republicans maintain control of the US House of Representatives. This according to new records released by the Federal Election Commission.

Musk drew fire from some Twitter users after the donations were reported by the Daily Beast.

A Twitter user named Terri, wrote, "I was considering a Tesla. That definitely won't happen now."
