Elon Musk Shuts Stephen King Down with Epic Comeback: ‘I’ve Donated $100M, How Much Have You Donated?’

Twitter CEO Elon Musk shut down Stephen King by humiliating the author with an epic comeback.

Musk responded after King challenged him to donate to Ukraine while complaining about having a blue checkmark on Twitter, despite not paying for it.

“My Twitter account says I’ve subscribed to Twitter Blue. I haven’t,” King said.

However, Musk revealed that he trolled King by paying for his blue check verification after the author vowed to refuse to pay the $8-per-month subscription fee.

“My Twitter account says I’ve given a  phone number. I haven’t,” King continued.

“I think Mr. Musk should give my blue check to charity.

“I recommend the Prytula Foundation, which provides lifesaving services in Ukraine.

“It’s only $8, so perhaps Mr. Musk could add a bit more.”

Musk fired back: “I’ve donated $100M to Ukraine, how much have you donated? (We turned down the DoD money btw).”

Musk is referring to Starlink – his satellite Internet network from his other groundbreaking company SpaceX.

SpaceX has been paying for terminals, new satellites, satellite launches, and satellite maintenance to keep Ukraine’s Internet online after the country’s infrastructure was taken out by Russia, according to media reports.

Without Musk’s service, Ukraine citizens would not have reliable Internet access, which has been especially crucial for its armed forces.

“Something doesn’t add up.”
