Musk booed at Chappelle show

Cameo/Guest Appearance0 Comments

At the San Francisco stop on his joint tour with Chris Rock, Chappelle brings Musk on to the stage as a special guest…

Ladies and gentlemen, make some noise for the richest man in the world!

…to loud boos and cheers from the 18,000 people in the audience. Chappelle:

It sounds like some of the people you fired are in the audience…You shut the f*ck up with your boos.

During the few minutes that he was on stage, Musk deferred to Chappelle for instruction on how to handle the negative reactions, asking: “What should I say?” to which Chappelle said: “Don’t say nothing, it’ll only spoil the moment. You hear that sound, Elon? That’s the sound of pending civil unrest.” In an attempt to cut through the awkwardness, Musk borrowed a line from Chappelle’s Show, yelling, “I’m rich, bitch!”

Musk, in a deleted tweet, later claimed that the cheering to booing ratio was 90% cheers to 10% boos.

But, still, that’s a lot of boos, which is a first for me in real life. It’s almost as if I’ve offended SF’s unhinged leftists … but nahhh.
