Elon Musk Gets Viciously Booed by Stadium Crowd at Dave Chappelle Show

“You shut the fuck up,” Chappelle said as the crowd booed the billionaire.

Elon Musk, the billionaire who wants nothing more in life than to be adored by legions of fans, was loudly booed by a crowd in San Francisco on Sunday night after he was invited onstage by comedian Dave Chappelle. And the footage is pretty rough, even if you don’t particularly like Musk.

“Ladies and gentlemen, make some noise for the richest man in the world,” Chappelle said near the end of his set at the Chase Center.

The crowd erupted into a mixture of cheers and boos, before the boos clearly won out, according to footage posted on Twitter. The booing got louder as Musk wandered around onstage with a microphone in hand. Musk started pacing and waving, clearly unsure what to do about such a negative reaction.

“Cheers and boos, I see. Elon…” Chappelle said.

“Hey Dave,” Musk responded, prompting another wave of boos from the crowd.

“It sounds like some of the people you fired are in the audience,” Chappelle joked.

“All these people who are booing, and I’m just pointing out the obvious, you have terrible seats,” Chappelle said, apparently trying to save Musk’s dignity by calling the people who are booing poor.

Phones weren’t allowed inside the stadium for the show, but at least one person snuck theirs in and captured the bizarre exchange, posting it to Twitter.

Chappelle tried to salvage the encounter, according to a second video posted to Twitter, joking, “his whole business model is fuck Earth, I’m leaving anyway.”

“What kind of pussy they got up there? That’s what we’ll be doing,” Chappelle said, according to the video.

After Chappelle’s jokes about “titty bars” in space, the crowd seemed to be properly won over and Musk started to speak again.

“Thanks for having me up on stage,” Musk said awkwardly to more boos.

“The first comedy club on Mars….” Chappelle said, as Musk stood by awkwardly just saying “yeah.”

As the laughs for Chappelle’s jokes would get drowned out by boos anytime Musk tried to talk, the comedian said that people could boo all they want, because Musk had given him a jetpack last Christmas.

But every single time Musk began to speak, the crowd started booing again, much to the frustration of Musk.

“Dave, what should I say?” Musk said, clearly desperate and getting embarrassed at the roar of booing.

“Don’t say nothing. It’ll only spoil the moment,” Chappelle said. “Do you hear that sound, Elon? That’s the sound of pending civil unrest. I can’t wait to see what store you decimate next, motherfucker. You shut the fuck up.”

The mood in the stadium definitely changed when Chappelle started to get hostile in defense of Musk.

“I wish everyone in this auditorium peace and the joy of feeling free,” Chappelle said, clearly exhausted that bringing Musk on stage had been such a failure. “And your pursuit of happiness. Amen.”

Musk, who used to have a rather bipartisan appeal in the U.S., has outed himself as an entitled right-wing prick in the short span that he’s owned Twitter. Musk bought Twitter, along with a number of investors, for $44 billion at the end of October when he almost immediately instigated brutal layoffs.
