The gaming culture website hard drive poked fun at Elon Musk after he tweeted a screenshot of one of his articles without attribution by replying, “hey I’ll give you horse if you stop removing our name from our articles.”
Musk, who is not known for his witty repartee, replied while tweeting:
Well, if you do something that looks like a meme and someone (not me) deletes your name, then that’s fine. Also, this is just a 6/10 meme, so maybe quit that high horse! The selfless art of anonymous mememakers is something to admire.
It was then that Hard Drive began to ruthlessly bully the infamous M&A mogul.

As of this writing, this post has 62,000 likes, eclipsing Musk’s SNL retort which sits at less than 4,000 – despite Elon Musk having nearly 100 million Twitter followers, while that Hard Drive has less than 250,000. As Elon Musk said in his riotously funny SNL Gen Z Hospital sketch, “big yikes!”
As Mr. Musk was quick to point out, the backlash serves as a harsh lesson to comedy sites like us. “The reason you’re not funny is because you’re awake,” Musk tweeted shortly after actively sharing a meme he thought was funny. “Wokism is a lie, that’s why nobody laughs.” We take those comments to heart, as we believe it likely explains why Hard Drive was trending nationally on Twitter following the incident. No one laughs on this dark day.
Ultimately, we hear Mr. Musk’s assessment of woke comedy. When we wrote about the Zodiac Killer, we should have considered that our joke might be potentially alienating to readers who support – or were – the 1960s mass murderer who was never caught by the police. . Comedy should always leave room for differences of opinion on serial killers and also on VLC Media Player, which was unfortunate collateral damage in the exchange.
