Musk Says Audience Booing Was ‘A Real-Life First For Me’

  • Elon Musk said the audience booed on Dave Chappelle’s comedy show was “a real-life first for me.”
  • Last month, an early Twitter investor warned that the billionaire is surrounded by “yes men.”
  • In October, a series of texts between Musk and big names in tech and media painted a similar picture.

It seems the richest man in the world isn’t used to being booed – at least not in person.

After being booed by the audience at Dave Chappelle’s comedy show on Sunday, Elon Musk took to Twitter to clarify the situation, calling it “a first for me in real life”.

“Technically, it was 90% cheering and 10% booing (except during quiet times), but still, this is a lot of booing (on Twitter often), which is a real-life first for me,” Musk tweeted. “As if I offended SF’s irrational leftists… but nahhh.”

The billionaire Tesla CEO commented after a Twitter user responded to him. thread on twitter this seemed to mock both the use of pronouns and the White House chief medical adviser, Dr Anthony Fauci.

“Truth resonates,” Musk tweeted on Monday morning.

“So is a crowd full of boos,” said the Twitter user.

“I see cheers and boos,” Chappelle said in the videos.

“You didn’t expect that, did you?” Musk replied.

In the videos, the Twitter owner appears to be free from negative feedback. At one point he asked Chappelle, “Dave, what shall I say?” he asks.

Musk did not respond to a request for comment from Insider prior to publication.

Both Musk and Chappelle faced backlash for anti-LGBTQ+ comments.

It’s no surprise, though, that Musk was surprised by the displeasure of the audience on Sunday night. He is surrounded by praise in many areas of his life.

Earlier this year, a batch of text messages emerged between Musk and some of the biggest names in tech and media as part of the discovery process of Twitter’s lawsuit against Musk. The texts showed that the billionaire received a lot of praise for his plans to keep Twitter private.

Included are offers to run the company on his behalf, requests to reinstate accounts, requests for meetings, and names of relatives to consider for roles. Billionaire investor Marc Andreessen, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Axel Springer CEO Matthias Döpfner, and media figures such as Joe Rogan, Tim Urban, and Gayle King immediately praised Musk or offered to help. (Axel Springer is the parent company of Insider.)

Last month, during a trial on Musk’s Tesla compensation package, a Tesla shareholder argued that he brought some of his closest friends to the electric car maker’s board of directors, from billionaire brother Kimbal Musk to longtime associates like Antonio Gracias and James Murdoch. .

On Twitter, Musk brought in some of his closest friends, including PayPal mob member David Sacks and personal attorney Alex Spiro, to help with the transition.

Recently, early Twitter investor Chris Sacca warned that Musk is surrounded by “yes men” who “fuel madness.”

Sacca, founder of Lowercase Capital, said, “One of the biggest risks to wealth/power is that there is no one around anymore who can push you back, give you candid feedback, suggest alternatives, or just let you know that you’re wrong.” “He has many ‘friends’ and is the life of parties and dinners,” he added on Twitter last month.

The tweet thread was later deleted.
