Elon Musk Takes Aim at Jimmy Kimmel

Elon Musk, the mastermind behind Tesla and SpaceX, recently took to X โ€ฆwait, I mean Twitter, to express his rather unusual sentiment towards late-night show host Jimmy Kimmel. The bone of contention? Kimmelโ€™s remark categorizing Donald Trump as a โ€œgreat white supremacist.โ€ A bold, albeit questionable, choice of words.

The Infamous Trump Joke

A user shared a snippet of Kimmelโ€™s latest episode where he delves into what can only be described as an โ€˜unhinged rant.โ€™ The focus of Kimmelโ€™s monologue? None other than the former President himself, Trump, whom Kimmel labeled as โ€œthe Great White Supremacist.โ€ Musk, unimpressed, chimed in with a succinct, โ€œHeโ€™s so unfunny!โ€ adding, โ€œThe other Jimmy is way better.โ€ Muskโ€™s preference for a different Jimmy couldnโ€™t be clearer.

Muskโ€™s Stance on Comedy and Politics

This isnโ€™t the first time Musk has brushed shoulders with comedians and politics. His aversion to endorsing political candidates is well-documented, not until the final stages of the presidential race in 2024, at least. A pivot away from Joe Biden has also been subtly signaled by the tech tycoon.

In the Comedy Crosshairs

In a blast from the past, Musk had a run-in with comedian John Oliver, who likened him to the quintessential movie villain. Muskโ€™s response was as cutting as ever, calling out Oliverโ€™s shift from comedic gold to being enveloped by โ€˜wokeness,โ€™ where humor, in Muskโ€™s eyes, is almost an offense.

The Academy Awards Snub

Not one to shy away from controversy, Musk also chose to bypass the 96th Academy Awards, helmed by Kimmel himself. His justification? Musk cited the diluted nature of awards, asserting that respect wanes when accolades lose their shine.
