And here we go. . .
Billionaire inventor Elon Musk is under fire for flashing the okay sign during his appearance on “Saturday Night Live” last night during the “Weekend Update” segment where he played a nerdy cryptocurrency expert:
I haven’t seen anyone commenting that he gave the white power sign pic.twitter.com/zfhgy3BHkT

Watch for yourself but don’t blink because it’s really, really quick:
We’re really doing this again?
It seems the defense of white power signs is that the people who see it are crazy conspiracy theorists who can’t recognize an old-fashioned contorted OK symbol. Not sure why they think Elon Musk was flashing OKs.

And he did it not once, but twice!
Elon Musk did the white power hand gesture during weekend update. Twice with each hand. NBC got Norm out of that desk for way less. Times are changing, I guess? This whole white supremacy thing is very retro.

And this blue-check was so angered by it that she hopes Musk dies in a Tesla fire:
When you’re a verified lib, Twitter lets you do it?
Still retains that blue check mark, doesn’t get temporarily or permanently suspended for promoting violence, doesn’t even get the post take down

I love when verified accounts wish a fiery death on someone because they are a crazy person who sees a gesture and loses their shit. https://t.co/be88fJSPgj

Jackie Robinson played through all the hate mail and racism — Meanwhile Daisy Barringer can’t handle a skit on Saturday nights. Hang in there, Daisy. No one gives a shit. https://t.co/FlPNxXXgHH
