A man who reportedly describes himself as a projection activist has trolled Twitter CEO Elon Musk by displaying messages criticizing him on the exterior of the social media company’s San Francisco headquarters.
The footage has gone viral on Twitter — with around 4 million views — after being posted Wednesday night by NBC Bay Area journalist Gia Vang.
“Elon Musk: mediocre manchild, pressurized privilege, petty racist, megalomaniac, worthless billionaire, bankrupt baby, supreme parasite, petulant pimple, apartheid profiteer,” read the scrolling words projected on the side of the building.
The display comes as Twitter is reportedly losing more employees after Musk gave them a deadline to choose to work “hardcore” or resign with severance pay.
In a company-wide email sent Wednesday, Musk told employees the choice had to be made by 5 p.m. ET Thursday. After the deadline, some employees took to the social media platform to announce they were “signing off,” according to the Associated Press.
It is not clear how many staff members decided to leave after Wednesday’s email, but Musk recently booted half of the company’s 7,500 full-time workforce and an undisclosed number of contractors.
In the early hours Friday, #RIPTwitter was the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter followed by Elon. Other trending topics were Twitter Off, Since Twitter, Before Twitter, and #TwitterIsOverParty.
