Musk booed at Chappelle show


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.

Face in butter


trump-butterA Missouri vegan woman claims to see Trump’s face in a tub of Earth Balance organic spread.

This was pretty much before I had coffee, so I was easily amused. I needed to put on my glasses to make sure it was him.

She considers posting the butter to Ebay and donating the funds to Hillary Clinton, but eats it instead.

It was the only butter I had, so I had to make the sacrifice.

Williams to guest star


Williams is slated to guest star in an upcoming episode of Doctor Who.

I’m so excited to be working on Doctor Who, as it’s such a big and important part of British culture. I can’t wait to meet the cast and crew and start filming, especially as we’ll be shooting not too far from my home town.


We’re thrilled to have Maisie Williams joining us on Doctor Who. It’s not possible to say too much about who or what she’s playing, but she is going to challenge the Doctor in very unexpected ways. This time he might just be out of his depth, and we know Maisie is going to give him exactly the right sort of hell.

Palo Alto


In this high school drama directed by Gia Coppola and based on the collection of short stories by James Franco, Kilmer plays Stewart,  April’s (emma Roberts) video game playing, stoner stepfather. The brief role finds Kilmer offering fatherly advice and support to his less than appreciative charge.  Co-starring James Franco and Jack Kilmer. Jack:

Yeah, he just kind of said like dad stuff. [Laughs] He’s really supportive and he would say like, ‘You just got to breathe and be super honest and tell the truth and take risks and just have so much fun.’ And that was kind of it. I’d ask him for advice sometimes, but he also understood that I wanted to figure a lot of it out on my own, because that’s kind of just my style.
