Elon Musk called ‘Space karen’ projected onto Twitter’s HQ: Video goes viral on social media

During the Twitter Crisis, 9 million people have seen a video by Elon Musk called “Space Karen.”

More than 9 million people have seen a video on social media that depicts anti-Elon Musk taunts that were projected into Twitter’s HQ last night, including “supreme parasite” and “Space Karen.”

Following the billionaire’s purchase of Twitter in October, hundreds of employees left the firm, and thousands were fired. The projections were made from a building across the street from Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters.

The hashtags “#Musk’s hellscape,” “#StopToxicTwitter,” “launching to bankruptcy,” and “Elon Musk, STFU!” was also used to criticize Musk.

In a widely shared 2020 tweet, a scientist referred to Musk as “Space Karen” for doubting the value of COVID-19 testing and lambasting the creator of Space X.

After claiming to have tested both positive and negative, Musk commented on his Twitter account, “Something totally fake is going on.”

Emma Bell, a researcher in the field of bioinformatics, provided a response to the billionaire by stating, “What’s fake is that Space Karen didn’t study up on the test before whining to his millions of followers.”

The post went viral, and Musk was given the moniker “Space Karen”—a combination of his desire to explore space and a meme making fun of affluent, excessively entitled white women.

The ridicule of Musk comes at a difficult moment for Twitter’s new owner.

His recently implemented policies and leadership seem to be driving away both users and workers after eventually closing his $44 billion purchase to buy the social media site in October.

Following a request to quit or remain “to develop a breakthrough Twitter 2.0,” hundreds of staff allegedly made the decision to depart the firm on Thursday.

The solution was a mass departure, which, with Musk’s decision to remove half of Twitter’s 7,500 full-time employees, might endanger the company’s ability to function efficiently going forward.

The exact number of employees who chose to quit on Thursday is yet unknown. The New York Times cited sources saying that Musk and his advisors met with a few “important” Twitter workers to try to persuade them to remain, but by Thursday night, hundreds of resignation letters had been sent.

Twitter users are talking about going to other services, such as Mastodon, and using the hashtag #RIP. Doomsday prophecies are popular on Twitter right now. Musk and Twitter have been contacted by SpaceXMania for comment.
