Fortune Editor Alan Murray on Friday discussed his war of words with Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk over Tesla's handling of a deadly crash involving autopilot.
Musk and Murray tweeted back-and-forth earlier this week debating whether the May crash was "material" to Tesla's stock price.
Though the dust has settled, Murray still posed what he called "legitimate questions" for Musk and Tesla during CNBC's "Closing Bell."
"Should [Tesla] have also told the shareholders before they went out and asked them to buy the stock?" Murray asked.
A Fortune report claimed Tesla and Musk made a combined $2 billion by selling stock on May 18 in a public offering without disclosing the May 7 crash, which the company and founder knew about at the time.
However, it was not until May 18 that the company was able to inspect the car and crash site, and did not complete its own investigation into the accident until the last week of May, Tesla said in a blog post Wednesday.
Murray also raised the question of "whether someone [will] file a shareholder lawsuit," a possibility he believes is a "worry" for the company.
It spite of Murray's questioning and tweets, he admitted, "I am a big fan on Elon Musk" and said he thinks "the technology is great."
