Stars aren't perfect. Although fans like to think they're without flaws, and often put their favorite celeb on a pedestal, even the most glamorous of all stars experience an awkward moment or two. From nature calling at the absolute worst moment, or an embarrassing clothes glitch on the red carpet, it's clear that celebrities are not immune to humiliation.
Elon Musk made a surprise appearance on stage at Dave Chappelle's show December 11 in San Francisco, home of Twitter’s headquarters, and was perhaps unsurprisingly met with a wave of boos. The new Twitter CEO, who had recently laid off many of its employees, and who'd tweeted transphobic statements and QAnon tropes the very same weekend, was introduced by Chappelle as the world’s richest person, and everything went south from there. After solid minutes of booing, Musk asked Chappelle what he should say and Chappelle replied, “Don’t say nothing. You hear that sound, Elon? That’s the sound of pending civil unrest.”
After the show, Musk tried to spin the story in a tweet: "Technically, it was 90% cheers & 10% boos (except during quiet periods), but, still, that’s a lot of boos, which is a first for me in real life (frequent on Twitter)." Attendees of the show, however, told NBC that Musk’s tweet was inaccurate and that the booing drowned out the cheering. Many believe the tides have shifted regarding Musk's popularity.
