Is There Anyone Sadder than Elon Musk?

The man just continues to get more pathetic.

At this point, I’m sure I’m not alone in coming to the conclusion that there are few people, if any, who are more insufferable than Elon Musk. Particularly since his decision to purchase Twitter, the billionaire has not only proven conclusively that he has absolutely no idea how to run it, but also that he’s nothing but an over 50 year old troll.

Frankly, it’s just getting genuinely sad.

At an event where he was appearing next to Dave Chapelle and he was met with a resounding chorus of boos that lasted for ten minutes from the attending crowd, one of the richest men in the entire world decided to yell:

“I’m rich, b***h!!”

What do you even say to this?

I truly cannot think of anyone or anything sadder..

I have never, ever been one who bought into the idea that money can’t buy happiness. It should go without saying that there are no words to describe what being financially stable and having the resources to simply have a comfortable roof over one’s head, a reliable vehicle, and the ability to travel every once in a while can do to improve mental health and reduce stress. But when you’ve reached the point of wealth that this shell of a man has reached, and this is what he’s reduced to, it’s hard to deny how utterly pathetic he is.

Imagine having more wealth than you could possibly spend in a multitude of lifetimes, and this is how you behave? Imagine being one of the wealthiest people on the planet at a time when people’s material conditions continue to deteriorate, and acting that way. On a daily basis, this man continues to show the world just how deeply insecure and miserable he is, and frankly it’s exactly what he deserves.

This behavior seems to prove that Musk genuinely thinks we’re just jealous, doesn’t he? He really thinks people want his money for themselves when in reality, normal people don’t feel the need to accumulate that amount of wealth. He’s got a God complex, while at the same time being acutely aware he would be nothing if he didn’t have his Daddy’s diamond mine money to begin with. He feels the need to show us just how smart he is, and it continues to backfire wonderfully.

I’d be lying if I didn’t admit how incredibly satisfying it is to see someone as loathsome as Elon Musk self destruct. His Tesla stock is plummeting, and all he’s got left in his corner are right wing reply guys in Twitter. The more erratic he continues to behave and the more employees he loses to his ridiculous decisions, the better. It’s exactly what he deserves.
