Elon Musk Tells Hollywood to Pound Sand: ‘There Shouldn’t Be a Different Standard for Celebrities’

Elon Musk has set Hollywood straight after a major star whined about getting charged for a blue checkmark on Twitter.

One of Musk’s first big moves after taking over the social media platform was to allow anyone to buy a coveted blue check mark.

The check mark was previously available based on a murky process that favored the rich and famous and the whims of Twitter’s “woke” staff.

There were also reports of employees getting selling the check marks as well.

Musk democratized the platform and then turned the tables on the elite telling them that they would have to pay for their check marks just like everyone else.

They didn’t like that and complained.

Hollywood legend William Shatner yelled the loudest.

Captain Kirk said: “Hey Elon Musk what’s this about blue checks going away unless we pay Twitter?

“I’ve been here for 15 years giving my time & witty thoughts all for bupkis.

“Now you’re telling me that I have to pay for something you gave me for free?

“What is this-the Colombia Records & Tape Club?”

Musk fired back: “It’s more about treating everyone equally.

“There shouldn’t be a different standard for celebrities imo.”

A Twitter user said:

“I find it hilarious that @elonmusk is going to end all the legacy blue checks and make them pony up $11 per month on April Fools’ Day.”

Musk responded:

“It will be glorious.”
