Dave Chappelle had a treat for attendees at his comedy show in San Francisco last night. He brought attention-starved hectobillionaire Elon Musk on stage. Cameras weren't allowed at the show, but someone with the Twitter handle Cleo PatrA posted a video of Musk getting booed and jeered by the audience. Curiously, Cleo PatrA's account was deleted.
One attendee wrote on Twitter:
Was at the Dave Chapelle show at SF tonight and who comes on but Elon Musk! A good 80% of the stadium boos. 18k people. and he withers. Like absolutely turns into a corncob. 'What should I say??' He says. Dave tries to salvage the situation but to no avail.
"Cheers and boos, I see," Chappelle said after Musk walked on stage.
Musk looked stunned and stuttered, "Times like this, I think we're in a simulation. Like, how can this be real?"
Yes, Musk, how can it be real that people think you suck for inviting Nazis back on Twitter, disparaging LGBTQ people, promoting far-right lies, and posting reckless speculation against former Twitter employees that have resulted in death threats? Beats me!
