Elon Musk is getting a frigid shoulder in San Francisco — as if the Twitter sitch wasn’t bad enough — he got onstage with Dave Chappelle, and was practically shouted out of the arena.
The comedian was performing Sunday at the Chase Center, and toward the end of his set … Dave brought Twitter’s CEO up onstage as a special guest, which the S.F. crowd did not receive well — raining a chorus of boos down on EM.
A few cheers could be heard as well, but as Dave noted … it was mostly folks who weren’t happy, but he kinda told them to shut it and tried to drown out the noise with a few jokes about how much he actually liked Elon, despite him being public enemy #1 online.
As for Elon … well, he rolled with it as best as he could. He sarcastically asked Dave if this is what he was expecting — and DC responded, “It sounds like some of the people you fired are in the audience.”
That got a laugh, as did some other cracks from Dave about the tense situation — and all the while, Elon just sorta stood around and took it. Some were expecting him to say more, as he does on Twitter, but in the end … Dave wrapped it up by telling people there were better ways to express their protests with the man.
Another surreal moment … when, at one point, Dave asked Elon to shout his old show’s signature outro line — “I’m rich, bitch!” — which Elon did … to mixed results. Fun times.
