--Space Exploration Technologies Corp. on Thursday fired some employees who helped write and distribute an open letter that criticized the behavior of Chief Executive Elon Musk, The New York Times reported Friday, citing three employees with knowledge of the situation.

--The Times said it obtained an email from Gwynne Shotwell, SpaceX's president and chief operating officer, in which she said the company had investigated and "terminated a number of employees involved" with the letter.

--"The letter, solicitations and general process made employees feel uncomfortable, intimidated and bullied, and/or angry because the letter pressured them to sign onto something that did not reflect their views," Ms. Shotwell reportedly wrote. "We have too much critical work to accomplish and no need for this kind of overreaching activism."
