@heluecht I am way over explaining and justifying shitty behaviour on the part of literally the richest man in the world.
If it was any other person, especially a person from a marginalized group, plenty of people would be insisting they "get their shit together" and "get a therapist."
And yet somehow with Elon we are supposed to see the poor, emotionally stumped nerd behind the billionaire peter pan wannabe memelord.
This is completely upside-down and inside out.
@rysiek He thought "Rococo Basilisk" was the height of wit. Anything he says about humour is thereafter suspect.
> Ultimately, we hear Mr. Musk’s assessment about woke comedy. When we wrote about the Zodiac Killer, we should have considered that our joke could be potentially alienating to readers who support — or were — the 1960s mass murderer who was never caught by police. Comedy should always leave room for differences of opinion on serial killers and also VLC Media player, which was an unfortunate piece of collateral damage in the exchange.
