Marques Brownlee, a popular gadget reviewer on social media, tweeted a link to an article about a Tesla fan site talking about a new leaked images of Model 3. The tweet regarding the most anticipated electric car says: “Yo Tesla Model 3 looks better and better in every leaked photo. Gotta love the incremental updates.”

Today, a report from The Verge claims that the leaked photos from the link tweeted by Brownlee ignite an internet power struggle. However, the next day, Brownlee woke up and find out that his tweet had been removed and restated with this information: “This tweet from @MKBHD has been withheld in response to a report from the copyright holder.”

According to Brownlee, the photographer named as You You Xue demanded the removal of the previous tweet on the grounds of copyright infringement. After understanding the request, he then followed up the information with another tweet wondering if the request attempted is in order for the photographer to promote the leaked images on Flickr or something else.

On the other hand, Xue claims to have randomly detected the Tesla Model 3 in San Matteo, California. In fact, he was right there and able to take a shot on the upcoming car by saying that he “jumped straight out of the car and started snapping photos!” However, Xue has been highly protective on the photos he took, even getting posts on Facebook or other social sites have been removed.

However, many car enthusiasts are very eager to see the in and out of the EV. In fact, the interior shots of the Tesla Model 3 show a simplistic-bordering-on-spartan dashboard. It has a touchscreen with the size of about 17-inch and not much else, according to BGR. CEO Elon Musk has said he intends to keep the driving experience of all the Model 3 users worth it that is why they came up with such designs and displays.

Aside from that, Musk also said that the Model 3 is not intended to be the third version of another electric car for the company, instead of a paired-down version of the Model S. Tesla’s confidence around the vehicle’s rollout has somehow created a black market for these types of spy shots. These rumors also made the Internet go a little crazy.
