Musk was booed onstage during Dave Chappelle’s San Francisco comedy gig, with crowd members refusing to let Musk speak into the microphone. Let’s see why Elon Musk boobed at the Dave Chappelle show in detail.
Elon Musk at Chappelle Show- Video leaked:
The now-deleted Twitter videos include Musk stumbles alongside Chappelle and Chris Rock. Although phones were not permitted inside the stadium, some people leaked videos of the performance.
Chappelle said during a performance at the Chase Center, “Ladies and gentlemen, make some noise for the richest man in the world” (via Gizmodo). “Cheers and boos, I see. Elon… It appears that some of the individuals you fired are present.
Musk completed his purchase of Twitter in October and quickly began restructuring the social media company, including a series of severe layoffs. An investigation is presently underway to determine whether Musk converted The Bay Area office space into residential quarters for employees working around the clock.
“All these people who are booing, and I’m just pointing out the obvious, you have terrible seats,” Chappelle said. “What kind of pussy they got up there? That’s what we’ll be doing.”
Why did the crowd jeer at Elon?
Chappelle welcomed Elon, while the crowd booed him on stage on Sunday at a stand-up performance in San Francisco. He was seen wearing a Twitter T-shirt at San Francisco’s Chase Center venue. The reason that Elon was booed is mostly because of his recent activities after he becomes CEO.
Chappelle was alluding to Musk’s brutal layoffs that followed the $44 billion acquisition of Twitter in late October. Musk sacked the top management group after becoming Twitter’s legal owner and then named himself CEO. Since then, he has fired half of Twitter’s 7,500 employees and demanded that the rest adhere to a “very strict” work culture (a fiat that reportedly led to the exit of another 1,200-plus workers).
Chappelle made a joke about “titty bars” in space, which SpaceX majority owner Musk had opened. He declared, “The first comedy club on Mars.”
Over jeers, Musk remarked, “Thanks for having me up on stage. What should I say, Dave? ” Don’t say anything, Chappelle retorted. It will merely spoil the occasion. Elon, do you hear a sound? That’s the sound of pending civil unrest.
“I’m rich, bitch”- says Elon:
I’m eager to see what store you decimate next, motherfucker. You shut the fuck up. I wish everyone in this auditorium peace and the joy of feeling free. And your pursuit of happiness. Amen.”
Musk then imitates Chappelle when he is prompted to declare, “I’m rich, bitch,” into the microphone. An official stadium sound department trumpet stops the booing.
As Musk moved around the stage with a microphone in hand, the jeers grew louder. Musk began to pace and wave, obviously unsure of how to handle such a backlash.
“Cheers and boos, I see. Elon…”said Chappelle. “Hey Dave,” Musk said, drawing another round of boos from the audience.
