Elon Musk got booed on stage at Dave Chappelle’s show in San Francisco

It’s not that I haven’t been paying attention to Elon Musk in recent weeks, it’s just that I needed a break from his utter vileness. Musk has only owned Twitter since late October. Musk began hemorrhaging money immediately by alienating advertisers and shutting down vital parts of Twitter, leading to an exodus of brands and celebrities. Musk is also trying to look cool to the white supremacists, Nazis and QAnoners online, which led to Musk tweeting this over the weekend: “My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci.” That really tells you all you need to know about Musk’s anti-science, pro-fascist ideology.

Musk did something else this weekend – he stepped on stage at a Dave Chappelle show and his ass got booed. You would think, hey, an audience full of people who paid for tickets to Dave Chappelle’s right-wing minstrel show will be full of bigots, transphobes, antisemites and morons, right? Of course they’ll love Elon Musk. Apparently not. Musk got booed so hard. Chappelle tried to save Musk’s flaccid ego by making a crack about “All these people who are booing, and I’m just pointing out the obvious, you have terrible seats.” Ah, that’s it – only poor people hate Elon Musk, and joke’s on the poor people who… paid for tickets to a Dave Chappelle show. Gizmodo has a more thorough breakdown about what happened.

Currently, Musk is trying to furiously delete all of the videos where you can hear him getting booed.

    Elon, about all that booing…to borrow your favorite phrase:
    vox populi, vox dei

    • Maida says:

      Elon’s now claiming it’s just the “unhinged leftists” in SF who booed him and it was only “10%” boos. He is tragically thin-skinned and thirsty.

      Amazing to watch all the Elon fans praise everything this middle-aged guy in a Party City demon outfit does.

  2. girl_ninja says:

    Ahhhhh…two Losers in a Pod. Musty should be booed anywhere and everywhere he goes.

  3. Liz in A says:

    This is glorious to see. I mean, this crowd is anti trans or at least ok with Dave Chapelle to start with, yet STILL booed Musk for minute after minute after minute. I love it, my petty feel good moment of the day

    • mia girl says:

      omg he just tweeted to someone dragging him “ Technically, it was 90% cheers & 10% boos (except during quiet periods)”

      He’s trying to gaslight his way out of his crushing embarrassment.

    • Tacky says:

      This is part of a global trend of negative responses towards people in power, institutions, and those with excessive wealth. People are fed up with the status quo.

    barftastic 🤮 & uncool to attack the good Dr Fauci

    I love 💕 San Francisco. The City 🏙️ By the Bay does it again!! Save us San Francisco 🎶 🎧 💕 🖖 👏 👏

    Oh weird he got booed in the city where he fired a bunch of people for no reason? Who could have possibly seen that coming.

    Also I went to Chapelle’s show a few years ago and it was awful. f*ck them both.

  6. HeyKay says:

    I am fine with boo-ing Elon Musk. Carry on.

  7. Solidgold says:

    This will cut Elons fragile ego deeply.
    Chapelle is really starting to annoy me.

  8. Jennifer says:

    This makes me happy. Money can’t buy you love when you’re a shithole to everyone. Even Dave seems to have turned on him in this article after awhile. And even freaking Chappelle fans hate him.

  9. Lizzie Bathory says:

    I love this for Elon & Dave. Both of their egos will be hurt from this & it was amazing to see them both learn in real time that Elon’s brand is poison.

    Elon is going to cocoon himself further into conspiracy theories & echo chambers while his businesses flounder from mismanagement, regulatory pressure & lawsuits. My guess is he’ll wind up a Howard Hughes-esque hermit.

  10. Betsy says:

    Darn. I had hoped that the videos of the muskrat being booed would be more clearly “BOO” but it’s a mix of cheers and boos to me. What was that internet video where some people heard one word and others heard another? Anyway, I wish I was just hearing boos and I’m going to go look for video of that. 😀

    • Colby says:

      You’re right but also, it was bad enough that they had to address it multiple times, so it had to be pretty bad in the room, regardless of how Musk tried to spin in.

  11. Concern Fae says:

    The people in SF who would go to a Chapelle show are also folks who would realize that the tech billionaires are screwing people over. I think people are waking up to the fact that an Elon Musk could buy the company you work for, run it into the ground, destroy your life, and actually end up with more money than when they started.

    Also, if you want to know why people aren’t reading newspapers or watching TV news, that this was a surprise is why.

  12. The Recluse says:

    I guess Chappelle doesn’t care that for all intents and purposes Muskrat is keeping Visa-dependant employees like serfs in the Twitter office building, making them live there in improvised apartments or cots. I hope Muskrat FAFO real soon.

    • Rnot says:

      Oh he’s already FA well beyond the point of self-destruction. The FO train is just starting to move.
