Elon Musk booed by crowd after Dave Chappelle brings him on stage at comedy gig

In a Twitter video, the mob jeers Musk, whose takeover of the social media network has raised concerns about mass layoffs and weaker content moderation.

“Ladies and gentlemen, make some noise for the richest man in the world,” Chappelle says. Despite loud boos, several audience members cheered.

“All these people that are booing, I'm simply pointing out the obvious—they have lousy seats in the stadium,” Chappelle says afterwards.

At the Chappelle show, James Yu tweeted: “A good 80% of the stadium boos. 18k.”

“Dave offered him so many chances to talk but he just placed his hands in his pockets,” Yu said.

Musk's Sunday post on outgoing U.S. chief medical advisor Anthony Fauci, who led the White House's Covid-19 response, was criticised.

Transphobic tweets were criticised on Twitter. Chappelle's Netflix special "The Closer" was criticised for transphobic humour.
