Let's start with the thing that everyone is talking about, everyone is always talking about, which is Elon, Elon has got himself in trouble. A couple Of times this week first, he tried selling some house plants or office plans. I should say just employees to raise money and then also ridiculed and sort of kind of fired an employee. Who is disabled your thoughts on the endless drama of you on? Cringe. What do you think?
Yeah, you are news. Is the cringe Master. He has to make everything about him, like he's just me, me me, he's now known as Milan musk in my house is guy, he loves this guy's too much. The the crazy thing Sam did you watch this all go down with the the guy that was like, hey am I fired? I think we should. We should explain this. Yeah. So
do a recap, I didn't understand all that. At first, I had to like click-through.
So guy goes on Twitter, who's got? I never heard of this guy, but he's got like a hundred fifty Followers and he says, hey you nine days ago? I lost access to my work computer. Just can't I can't access Twitter anymore. I work at Twitter, it can access my work. My work computer doesn't login anymore. It doesn't work. Can't get into my email. Can't do anything. I'm not sure if I'm fired. Nobody told me I'm fired but I just can't get into my email or my computer. I've emailed them, I've waited nine days. I've got no reply from HR from I'm from anybody. So I guess hey, at Elon Musk, am I fired and so that you know he tweets that out.
When's he getting They'd still, I
don't know, I don't think so because everybody was one of it was only nine days and maybe it was in between yet. So he tweets that out and he goes maybe if this gets enough retweets then I'll get a response so gets retweeted a bunch of like, he's people, you know, there's a whole group of people that you love to hate me Lon, myself, included, and so people are like, this is another example of how poorly Twitter's being run right now. Like why would you if you're gonna fire somebody, tell them their fire that's, you know, common decency, right? Like I feel like you only got this flow chart. It's like I'm firing this person. Should I tell them? It's like, yes. And it's like no, I'm gonna go with. No. Okay. What happens after know? Like she should I just should I, you know meet with them in person. (expletive). Cut off its like that. Dude. He's like
Irish good. Buying their jobs. It's basically, this is walking out without saying goodbye. Exactly.
And so anyways, this thing goes viral. So basically you londen, you know, again he sees the all he sees this thing going viral. So instead of actually just eval you are fired or confirmed Yes, you were fired. He instead says what have you been working on? Like what have you accomplished is the? So then he goes well you know if I say what I'm working on, I think I'd be breaking my NDA. Do I have permission to break my India and tell you what? Like can I say publicly here? What I work on any one flies? Yes go ahead good. What an attic
start to the story. That's already pathetic. He goes.
All right. Well, I've been working on this. This and this and then he'll on replies, basically being a jackass. Like the guy, the bad guy goes You know, leveling up the design of this, I was working on this and, you know, I was helping save money on this contract or whatever and it goes Ilan, replies level up the design from what to what pictures are it didn't happen. And like you know dipshit you cut off his computer access I was he supposed to have screenshots of us and work if you took away his computer he's not you not even able to do it and then he's like mocking a basically just replying with like the crying laughing emoji. He's replying trolling him with like a clip from Office Space and now here's what you all went wrong. So So elon's not dumb, but he's a dumbass as a big difference between dumb at a dumb (expletive) dumb is, you're just not smart, dumb (expletive) is your smart but you do dumb things. And that's what he'll on does here. So he basically picks on a guy that it comes out. So this guy sold his company to Twitter it, so you on comes out. Here's what he says about the guy he goes, somebody was like dude this is the this guy Alex Cohen has great to meet you guys. I'm not gonna lie. This is the most entertaining exit interview ever. There's watching this whole thing, go down in public, and then the guy you want, says the Is this is a guy that who was independently wealthy did, no actual work and claimed as an excuse that he has a disability preventing him from typing yet. Here he is. Tweeting out a tweeting up, a storm.
Wait. And so it's a the disability thing. Ilan, said that first he
goes he claimed as his excuse that he has a disability preventing on typing yet was simultaneously tweeting up a storm. I can't say I have a lot of respect for that.
What a douche, why? We could, how could he reveal
that? Here's the other side of the story. This guy has like this guy's in a wheelchair he's had like mustard is just e for 25 years that so he goes. So this guy came back with just kind of some fire so he goes Thunderclap I think you called it is so loud Thunderclap basically. So he comes back. He is glad to see you're taking such an interest in my health. I assume what you're talking about when you are sharing my private health information online is the fact that I've had muscular dystrophy for 25 years and I guess I'll go ahead and tell the story now. So you know, I lost, I lost the ability to My legs 20 years ago, I've been in a wheelchair, unfortunately, it's been spreading and I've my arms have been getting weaker over time. In fact, that's why I sold my company. Remember you said I was independently wealthy. I guess what you mean by that is I built a successful company and sold it. Unlike, you know, somebody else you might have inherited an emerald mine which is that, you know, elon's Dad owned a camera, which
is bullshit, which is, that's a bullshit thing is good, but whatever, we'll use it
in this case, it's good. And so he goes, I guess that's what you mean by independently wealthy, and And you know so here's what here's the story. This guy's got muscular dystrophy. He's losing feeling in our strength in his arms becoming very painful to type he decides. Okay. I'm gonna sell my company and instead of taking a lump sum payment, he chose to get paid out through like a salary instead of an upfront money which is like, dude who would do that. Why? Because he wanted to pay more taxes in Iceland. Where he's from, wait,
really want to pay more
taxes. Why do you want to pay more taxes? Because he felt like he's as a disabled person. He had benefited a lot from like the social welfare system there and was I want to contribute as much as I can to that, which honestly sounds like too good to be true. Like, whatever. So different than me. I almost can't fathom that I'm almost like, why don't you just take the money and donate it instead of paying taxes? I don't understand that, but either way, this guy, so build a company had 100 employees working for them. It was profitable decides to sell. It was bodies basically been giving out on them. He's like you know financially it wasn't the best decision. My company was making a lot of money. Twitter's offer was lower than other companies but I made a bet on Twitter, it was growing at the time and he goes, by the way he goes, So anyways, I digress. Are you still reading or your bathroom break over? Okay, what was I saying? And he goes, oh yes, so you bought the company told employees, you weren't firing them, firing 75% of them and then you did I was not in the first batch or the second batch of the third batch of layoffs. I don't know which bachelor on Matt now, but I think I'm fired now. I'm not sure I'd want to make sure I get paid out because in his contract, he had it. Where, okay, I'll take the money as a yearly salary, rather than an upfront payment. But if you ever fire me, then you have to pay out the rest, right? So, I'm guaranteed Money, I'll take it, you know, slower rather than faster but you know that that's fine. And so anyways this guy this guy not only how
he's typing, what's that? He also mentioned, how he was typing. Yeah, I think he was
just like yeah I can't do like sustained thing but like I can type with big one finger on my phone and Belmont. And so anyways he explains this. He goes like this guy was literally named person of the year and Iceland this guy like his. His side hustle is he's building wheelchair ramps. Throughout Iceland. So that other disabled people can do, like he's building hundreds of these wheelchair ramps. Like, that's who you are. That's who you pick it on here. That's who. That's who you chose to fight with. I saw this great quote. He goes, he'll on man. This guy's a dumbass. He (expletive) with the wheelchair mr. Rogers because, what is this guy thinking? You know, like it. So, this guy, you know, I read this thread and I was literally, like, I don't want, I'd like to report a murder, right? Like, the ultimate clap back and then he loves try. Backtrack and he basically goes some random dude Tweets in the thread goes, I know Hallie. And this is, you know, you're saying that he's a liar and was just trying to do no work and get paid out. That's not who this guy is random guy tweets. And then you'll on treats back, this is the most bullshit of all the bullshit he goes based on that. Comment, I decided to call Hallie rather than just tweet it to each other and you know, have a video chat with him, turns out, you know, there was a misunderstanding, the Operation. I was given was either incorrect or correct but not important.
That white flag, bro. You lost and
you know, and we've discussed him in a staying with the company and you know this is the ultimate backtracks like first of all you you want him to stay with the company because you have to pay them out if you fire them. So that's like, you know, the first thing. Second thing, you basically (expletive) up and stepped in it and this guy could sue you for like, you know, a whole bunch of money for like basically you know discriminating it's a disabled person, did he apologize? Well is disclosing his private health information as well as probably three or four other you know? Issues that there were labor laws that were broken in this process but it's like, dude, you decided to have a video chat. Not when the guy said he's, your employee said he hasn't heard from you not when he asks one at for an explanation, but when a random guy on Twitter said, know how he's a good guy. You decided there to stop in your tracks and do a video call with him bullshit. Like this whole, this whole thing is bullshit and Elon continues to be, you know, king the king of bullshit. Have
you heard the Song. (expletive), it feels good to be a gangster.
Have you ever have? There's
a line, there's a line in it. I can't say the real line, but it basically says, real gangsters, don't flex nuts, because real gangsters know that got him. And right now elon's, he is pretty gangster. I mean, he's the man, he and I, he ain't acting like it. He's flexing nuts hard and he shouldn't be flexing as hard as he is, and I get the personality type versus some people are like, dude, he's just saying whatever he wants the same thing with Trump or he's like, he just
saying, He says it like it is it says
it like it is and I actually just like that. I like that like to an extent but I'm like there's just punched someone like hitting people isn't good. You know what I mean? It's like yeah I want to do what i what does that mean about it? Like go take a dump in the corner of the room like you know there's like do you let's be polite to one another also if possible we don't we're not going to be needlessly needlessly, rude to one another and that's kind of how I feel he acts right now. And that's not cool
to learn to other parts of this new story. One, it's going around at this guy. His payout was a hundred million dollars which makes no sense anybody who's had businesses like well, that number makes no sense. There's no way he's getting paid nine million dollars a year of salary. There's no way that they bought his Agency for a hundred million dollars. It's not how much you would act will hire an agency. For it's probably more like 10 but, it'll and I went, I found it just started with some random guy who goes, oh man, Ilan backtracking now because he realized he that Hallie has a hundred million dollar payout and like five tweets. And somebody's like, where'd you read the hundred million? I never saw that he goes, I'm just Meaning like you know, Aqua Aqua hers are million dollars a head that 100 employees so you know a hundred million dollars. And now that's just like, in a bunch of places. It's like that's how bad like
information suffix News starts.
The second thing is you want owned himself when he goes the end of his thing, he goes better to communicate through talking instead of communicating on Twitter. It's like that's not
how you roll do literally (expletive)
on his own platform by the way, you know, so so self owning, you know, all around so that I thought that was touching.
