Dave Chappelle asked the audience during his comedy show to “make some noise for the richest man in the world”.
The spectators roared. Lots of boos.
It was a pretty uncomfortable performance for Twitter’s new owner Elon Musk at Dave Chappelle’s show with Chris Rock on Sunday night at the Chase Center in San Francisco. At the end of the show, the comedian talked about the need to associate and communicate with people with different perspectives and views.
He invited Elon Musk on stage. The billionaire agreed, and loud boos filled the arena with cheers.
Chappelle joked with Musk that he was probably dealing with “people he fired.” As boos continued to ring out, the comedian pointed out that anyone who was upset was in “bad seats”.
Twitter has undergone massive changes since Elon Musk took over the social media platform, with the first few weeks of his tenure marked by widespread firings and the reinstatement of several suspended accounts, including former President Donald Trump’s and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Musk stayed on stage for a long time, shaking hands with many artists who had joined Chappelle. Spectators had been asked to lock their phones during the show, but a few videos of the event surfaced online.
