Principal Elon Musk It was tumultuous On Sunday night, the comedian was given a standing ovation by one group, others as he took to the stage. Dave Chappelle in San Francisco, as seen in a video that went viral on social media on Monday.
In a video shared on Twitter, the crowd can be heard chanting Kasthuri for several minutes.
San Francisco is home to Twitter, a platform the Tesla CEO bought for $44 million this year and has come under fire for its mass layoffs and less rigorous content moderation.
“Cheers and boos, I see,” Chappell said as Musk moved across the stage.
“You weren’t expecting this, were you?” Musk asked Chappelle, to boos in the background.
“Looks like some of the people you fired are in the audience.Chappelle joked, then tried to get the crowd excited again by saying the booing was because there were “terrible seats.”
However, the shouting continued for several minutes, during which Musk only said: “Thank you for inviting me.”
Then the SpaceX founder also asked: “Dave, what can I say?” And Chappell replied: “Say nothing. Hear that noise, Elon? That’s the sound of pending civil unrest.”
This Monday, Musk said in a tweet that “technically” he got “90% claps and 10% cheers,” though a viral video suggests otherwise.
“Still, it’s new to me in real life (but) gets shouted down often on Twitter. It’s like I offended the crazy leftists in SF… but no,” he added.
