Elon Musk booed warmly when making a surprise appearance at Dave Chappelle’s concert – National

Twitter CEO Elon Musk was invited on stage by comedian Dave Chappelle during his San Francisco stadium performance on Sunday night – and things didn’t go as planned.

Chappelle was performing at the Chase Center in San Francisco, which happens to also be the home of Twitter’s headquarters, when he suddenly announced near the end of his performance: “Ladies and gentlemen, make some noise richest man in the world”. And make the noise they did.

At first, audience reaction was mixed, with cheers and boos, but soon the mockery spread throughout the packed stadium, according to videos posted to Twitter and YouTube.

The Twitter CEO, who has faced rebuke for laying off half of the platform’s employees and overhauling its moderation policies, doesn’t have much to say while on stage. and mostly go around.

Chappelle joked as the boos continued: “Looks like some of the people you fired are in the audience.

Chappelle then taunted his audience, saying, “All these booing people, and I’m just pointing out the obvious, you have terrible seats.”

One Twitter users who posted a video of the awkward turn of events wrote: “The reaction to Elon clearly speaks for itself, but @DaveChappelle just bluntly rips off the ‘poor people’ at the top who paid the right amount. literally coming to see him perform is possibly the most unsettling part of this. Pretty crude.”

Cellphones are not allowed into the venue, but at least one person captured video of the incident. The original video posted to Twitter has since been removed and the account suspended or deleted. Since then, it has been re-uploaded on YouTube and by other Twitter accounts. (You can check out a spoiler recording below – note that there’s vulgar language in the clip.)

Twitter user James Yu said he was at the show and tweeted about the encounter: “80% of the stadium boos. 18k people. and he withered. Like completely turned into a cob.

“Dave gave him a lot of opportunities to speak but he just put his hands in his pockets,” Yu wrote.

Yu wondered why Musk appeared on stage with Chappelle in the first place, writing: “The only thing I read is that he thinks it will be a change. Ppl feel good after placing chaple. SF home ground.”

Towards the end of the night, Yu said he “really feels bad” for Musk because of the shame.

Musk responded to the antics on Sunday night by replying to a tweet on Monday.

Musk previously tweeted a sublime joke saying his pronoun was “Prosecutor/Fauci” and responded to his own tweet saying “The truth resonates.”

Musk defended himself by writing: “Technically, that’s 90% cheering and 10% booing.”

(Chappelle himself has also been criticized for making sublime jokes on his comedy shows.)

According to videos posted online, Chappelle would tell a joke and the audience would cheer and laugh, but when Musk started, the boos would drown him out.

“Dave, what should I say?” Musk said at one point, frustrated by the whistling sound.

“Don’t say anything. Chappelle said. “Did you hear that sound, Elon? It was the sound of pending civil unrest. I can’t wait to see which store you’ll destroy next, m———-r. You shut up.

Musk’s Twitter was recently investigated by the city of San Francisco over reports that the company had set up illegal bedroom suites in its headquarters. These beds are thought to be for the remaining “stubborn” employees to spend the night in the office to build on Musk’s “Twitter 2.0” vision.

San Francisco’s Department of Building Inspection is seeking to inspect its headquarters at 1355 Market St.
