A Job That Should Have Included a Seppuku Knife

That would be for the use of Linda Yaccarino, who was hired by Musk to marked Twitter X to advertisers.

Elon Musk, in his first interview with mainstream media since his antisemitic post on X earlier this month, apologized Wednesday for what he called his “dumbest” ever social media post. But he lashed out at advertisers leaving his platform because of rising antisemitism on X.

“I don’t want them to advertise,” he said at the New York Times DealBook Summit in New York. “If someone is going to blackmail me with advertising or money go f**k yourself. Go. F**k. Yourself,” he said. “Is that clear? Hey Bob, if you’re in the audience, that’s how I feel” he added, referring to Disney CEO Bob Iger, who spoke earlier at the summit on Wednesday.
Musk made the remarks as the X CEO, Linda Yaccarino, sat in the audience. Yaccarino was brought into the company to woo back big-name advertisers

Space Karen is blaming advertisers for hurting his company, which is akin to a firebug blaming the water department because pressure to the fire hoses was too low. It wasn't the advertisers who turned the Company Formerly Known as Twitter into a cesspond of racism, bigotry and antisemitism. That was the doing of Space Karen, all by himself.

Musk, after saying that he regretted his antisemitic post, doubled down by blaming Jews for pro-Hamas demonstrations.

It's hard to see how a rational person cooud have ever thought that they'd make money by turning Twitter into Truth Social 2.0. But nobody is calling that Nazi-Adjacent little jerkoff "rational".

Seems he has developed TDS that Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Its a cult syndrome. Usually koolaid laced with nasty stuff
makes an appearance.

I don't know the circumstances. Probably I would treat this Linda Yaccorino the same way as the guys she runs with. Which means she doesn't get any tamales. I would snitch on her, just because she is not the person I want to live with. Let her people do this.

Then there's this from Linda....
X CEO Linda Yaccarino called owner Elon Musk "candid and profound" in a memo to staff addressing the public interview in which Musk told advertisers to "go fuck yourself."

"Elon's interview was candid and profound," Yaccarino wrote in a memo to employees of X (formerly Twitter) yesterday. "He shared an unmatched and completely unvarnished perspective and vision for the future. If you haven't watched it, please take the time to absorb the magnitude and importance of what we're all a part of."
Yaccarino's full memo to staff addressing Musk's interview was published by CNBC. "Our mission at X is bold: to be an open platform without censorship of thought—one that provides people information and the freedom to make up their own minds," she wrote. "Our principles do not have a price tag, nor will they be compromised—ever. And no matter how hard they try, we will not be distracted by sideline critics who don't understand our mission."

Yaccarino said she is "immensely proud to lead this company," and told employees they should feel the same. "You're at X because you have the courage and conviction to build and operationalize the most consequential platform that exists. That's quite an enviable position to be in," Yaccarino wrote.

Yaccarino told staff that X is part of a "one-of-a-kind constellation of companies" led by Musk. "We're at one of the most maverick companies in the world and we get to do things that have never been done before," she wrote. "X sits in a one-of-a-kind constellation of companies that are changing the world—from helping to conserve the planet through Tesla's electric vehicles, to exploring new planets with SpaceX, to the seamless global connectivity of Starlink, to the potential of transforming lives with Neuralink, to responsibly reimagining the benefits of AGI through xAI."


Sorry Linda, but the only thing profound and deep is how far up Elon's #$$ (and fantasy world) you are. Thanks, but I'll pass on the Elon-flavored Kool-Aid.

What with climate change, Trump and a vast assortment of deranged conspiracy idiot tribes, mankind will be lucky to survive....we're not just rushing towards the existential challenges of an abused finite planet, but simultaneously playing Russian Roulette with a loaded cylinder. AGI...shudder.

He was doing OK when we really didn't know who he was. Now that he has opened his pie hole a few times we begin to get the measure of this man. Egocentric, Biggoted, Antisematic, and pro-nazi. Not exactly what we want our CEOs to be known for. Some people still think he's great, just because he is rich. The way he is going, that won't likely last too much longer. Too bad he felt so inclined to speak up, he once had a lot going for him. Pushing that godawful ugly 'want to be a truck' thing though, would sink anybody.
