Shatner criticised Musk for refusing to stay in his lane as the CEO is known for expressing his opinions on numerous topics.
The legendary actor even said Musk's actions are "much like a Tesla on auto-pilot."
A clip in the background of the video also showed Musk hyping up Tesla in its beginnings – promising the future of full self-driving technology.
This vision occurred in 2014 when Musk expressed his confidence "that in less than a year" people could go from highway on-ramp to highway exit without touching any control."
However, the following clip showed a YouTuber testing a Tesla and said that the car just ran a red light.
The 91-year-old actor also mocked SpaceX for sending the first car into space after it made history in 2006 by launching the first reusable rocket.
Musk has been very transparent about the hurdles he has endured while trying to get both Tesla and SpaceX off the ground, and said that both companies were on the brink of bankruptcy.
In the words of Shatner, "Musk enjoys life's simplest pleasures, such as boating shirtless and spending a lot of time on Twitter."
"Twitter is not just a fun place for the billionaire, but a place for him to attempt to make the world better", Shatner said, referencing his October 2021 that said he would solve world hunger with $6bn only if the World Food Program can explain how the money would be spent.
Still, Shatner did praise Musk for building a future that humans imagined was only possible in films.
"And that's why Elon Musk truly is a visionary future man," Shatner concluded.
