A freelance writer and editor who goes by the name of Daisy Barringer wishes that Billionaire Elon Musk will die in a horrifying car crash after he apparently displayed a “white power” hand sign, otherwise known globally as the OK gesture.
Barringer took to Twitter to make her displeasure known:
“Wait. Whaaaaaaaaa… did Elon Musk just … like… aggressively flash the white power sign during the Weekend Update? Please tell me I’m insane. Please. No really. Going to need you to tell me I’m insane,” Barringer tweeted.
“Listen, usually when I say I hope someone dies in a fire, I’m being hyperbolic. But, like, Tesla’s do burn for four hours straight, so like … I’m not gonna be mad about it,” she continued. “I kept watching because I really hoped one of the cast members was going to walk to the front of the stage at the closing and punch him out.”
“Definitely never thought Saturday Night Live would send me into a tornado of existential despair. But here we are. I almost don’t have words but I will say I hope his Tesla catches on fire and he dies. :)” Barringer said.
She quickly locked her Twitter account after the mad tirade due to significant pushback from the public.
However, she doubled down, obviously seeking attention:
“SUPER shocking that the white supremacists are searching Twitter to ‘correct’ people about the never-been-more-obvious Elon Musk white power sign. It’s like … I want to just roll my eyes, but that’s the last thing to do with Nazis,” Barringer said.
“Omg the people excusing Elon Musk saying it’s the ‘okay’ symbol. Wow wow wow. I guess they never learned about context,” she added. “Why would [he] be saying okay at all, much less forwards and backwards.”
The Daily Beast also criticized Musks performance, calling Musk “union-busting billionaire who’s repeatedly spread COVID and vaccine misinformation,” and further “mocked Musk for sharing some incredibly lame ‘skit ideas for SNL.’”
They added to their criticisms: “He stumbled nervously — albeit somewhat endearingly — through the rest of his scripted speech, sharing his ‘vision for the future’ (‘renewable energy’ and how ‘humanity must be a multiplanetary, space-bearing civilization’), and poking fun at his habit of making 4/20 and 69 jokes on Twitter,” the Daily Beast wrote.
It is important to note, that when they insulted Musks show for feeling “scripted”, its a pointless insult as the show is recorded live, and actors’ lines are presented to them without preparation, it is absolutely scripted, its the whole point!
