Elon Musk called ‘space Karen’ in a projection at Twitter headquarters

/ 09:27 AM November 18, 2022

A series of insults were projected outside Twitter’s headquarters in California. It was directed towards the new owner, Elon Musk, dubbing him a “space Karen.” This is following reports that hundreds of employees quit after his ultimatum of intense longer working hours.

Outside Twitter’s office in California, a barrage of insults was showing via projector. The display hurled the following messages. “Elon Musk: supreme parasite, pollutant pimple, apartheid profiteer, dictator’s a**kisser, lawless oligarch, insecure colonizer, cruel hoarder, space Karen, mediocre manchild, pressurized privilege, petty racist, megalomaniac.”


According to NBC Bay Area, “someone across the street” from Twitter’s headquarters made an effort. They trolled the billionaire and new Twitter owner on Thursday night. An NBC Bay Area reporter linked the projected messages to  individuals calling themself “a projection activists.” 

Although it wasn’t clear yet as to who was behind the insults, it was similar to the insults displayed in the same place by projection artist Alan Marling on Nov. 7. Marling said via email at that time that “as humans, we have a moral duty to defend our neighbors against hate speech and white supremacy.” These two negative traits he also attributes to Elon Musk due to his recent actions with Twitter.

Twitter employees quit

Furthermore, these projections of insults came after hundreds of Twitter employees quit. Musk demanded the employees sign up for long hours at high intensity. If the staffers don’t abide, they can leave by Thursday, Nov. 17. 


Musk sent the message. “Please continue to comply with company policy by refraining from discussing confidential company information on social media, with the press or elsewhere.” Signs are showing that numerous workers have decided to resign because they disagree with Musk’s terms.

When Musk took over Twitter, mass layoffs had been in place. After this incident, more workers quit, including some in the top management. Furthermore, he recently imposed removing remote work options even for disabled employees.

His continuous changes in the work environment cause mass resignations. But the billionaire seemed unaffected when he tweeted, “the best people are staying.”
