US Capitol Siege By Protesters: Elon Musk Triggered Wave of Controversial Comments on Social Media

Elon Musk has once again triggered a wave of controversial comments on social media, posting a meme concerning the US Capitol siege by protesters.

Events that took place on Wednesday afternoon seem rather grim, considering that at least 4 people died. However, the Tesla CEO decided to entertain his 41.5 million followers with a photo of a Trump protester occupying the presiding officer’s chair in the Senate Chamber. To add more fun, the man was actually seen shirtless wearing a horned fur cap.

“This is what happens when you cancel Burning Man,” the caption read, apparently hinting at the annual festival at Black Rock Desert in Nevada that was unfortunately cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Musk’s tweet sparked a wave of reactions, including a lot of follow-up jokes from netizens, as well as pictures of other protesters inside the building, and even references to how this and other events were “predicted” by The Simpsons series.
