Elon Musk Tells Shocked Media Crowd That He Won’t Be Blackmailed by Advertisers: “Go f*ck yourself” (Watch Video)


Elon Musk has already shocked us over and over.

But now watch him tell Aaron Ross Sorkin that he won’t be blackmailed by advertisers dumping him over antisemitic tweets and Neo Nazi posts.

What does he tell them, Sorkin asked? “Go f*ck yourself.” The room at the New York Times Media Summit is stunned into silence. So Musk says it again, and refers to it again. He says “the world” will hold advertisers responsible for killing Twitter X.

He also references “Bob” as in Iger, CEO of Disney.
