Leftists online are seething after African American billionaire Twitter CEO Elon Musk was spotted sitting alongside Rupert Murdoch at Super Bowl LVII on Sunday night.
The two wealthy men were seen having a conversation shortly in the stands at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona after musical artist Rihanna performed her halftime show.
As the pair was featured on the screen, NFL anchor Kevin Burkhardt remarking that there are “brilliant minds in that box.”
“Rupert pays our checks too, so that’s always good,” Burkhardt added.
Shortly after the nation was made aware of Murdoch and Musk’s Super Bowl attendance together, leftists online and on mainstream news outlets began to express their grievances.
Speaking to Ben Smith, SEMAFOR Editor-in-chief, CNN host Don Lemon discussed how frightening it was to see Musk and Murdoch together.
“Elon Musk is at the Super Bowl with Rupert Murdoch. Two non-American right wing billionaires who use their money and power to help fascists win elections,” tweeted radical leftist and Democrat activist Dash Dobrofsky.
“Elon Musk and Rupert Murdoch were sitting next to eachother at last night’s Superbowl. The two crooks must be brought down back to earth. They are colluding with far right groups to destroy democracy. Just boycott their company,” tweeted one leftist, perhaps ironically, on Musk’s very own big tech platform.
One Twitter leftist exploded into an all-caps explicative rage upon discovering Musk and Murdoch sitting together, repeatedly tweeting “FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, FUCK YOU, and FUCK YOU.”
“I’m not encouraging it, but at some point people are just going to spit on every Tesla they see out of disgust,” tweeted user @NIK_VENTURE.
After attending the Super Bowl on Sunday night, Musk on Monday enraged leftists once more by declaring his intention to not escalate the Ukraine conflict into a potential Third World War with Russia, Valiant News reported.
In urging former NASA astronaut and the twin brother of current U.S. Senator Mark Kelly (D-AZ) to stop buying into warmonger “propaganda bs” in the face of a potential World War 3, Musk maintained that he is still trying to do the right thing.
“SpaceX commercial terminals, like other commercial products, are meant for private use, not military, but we have not exercised our right to turn them off,” Musk said after Scott Kelly begged him to “restore the full functionality of your Starlink satellites.”
“We’re trying hard to do the right thing, where the ‘right thing’ is an extremely difficult moral question,” Musk added.
