Courtney Love Cobain, Elon Musk, Bernie Sanders and Kendall Roy are all in the running to be Friday Main character on Twitter after just one tweet where the 90s grunge music queen scolded Tesla CEO on Twitter for his nasty response to the Vermont senator (we’ll get to Kendall in a second).
According to Love, she was in copy on Musk’s “PayPal str8 mafia messaging group, male” for months. “With this information in mind, don’t you think that in a ‘civilized society’ we should be willing to pay our fair share of taxes? She tweeted on Thursday. She attached a screenshot of Musk’s November 14 response to Sanders’ tweet which stated, “We must demand that the extremely rich pay their fair share. Period. “Being one of those extremely wealthy people, Musk apparently took offense and replied to the 80-year-old senator,” I always forget you’re still alive. ”
It didn’t suit Love, apparently. “Don’t take it out on Bernie. That’s Kendall Roy’s shit, ”she told him, adding the name of the former number one boy from the HBO drama. Succession. Kendall, you see, tried to score points in the court of public opinion by exposing the many wrongdoings of his family’s business, especially Patriarch Logan Roy. If you have watched Succession, you know how ridiculous it is for Kendall to present himself as the “good” guy (if you haven’t watched him fix that ASAP) and that he’s a very rich guy, usually crazy, who for some reason craves approval, sometimes looking for it random tweets to Twitter.
@Elon Musk Do you know your str8, male, PayPal mafia email group? I was on bcc for MONTHS on this thing. With that information in mind, don’t you think that in a “civilized society” we should be willing to pay our fair share of taxes? Don’t take it out on Bernie. This is Kendall Roy’s shit. pic.twitter.com/cW4gRCxvjU

The internet has been anxiously waiting for Love to spill the tea (she even put a teapot emoji in the tweet) on what was actually in those str8, male, PayPal mafia emails, but her collective hopes were dashed. when she later tweeted she was a “good queen,” noting that capitalism and the American dream had been good for Musk, and that he should be good in return by paying taxes.
Lest you think this is a pop culture lesson with no moral to the story, Love actually brings up a point that Musk himself has given his 65million followers thought about: how much he pays. or pay no taxes. Musk has strongly criticized a proposal to tax unrealized gains on publicly traded assets for some of the richest Americans and said in a discussion thread last month that the only way for him to “pay taxes personally is to sell shares “.
We know Love is all too aware of the power of Twitter; her former lawyer Rhonda Holmes sued her (unsuccessfully), claiming that a wandering DM that Love tweeted publicly had damaged Holmes’ reputation. A jury concluded in 2014 that Love should not be held responsible for the tweet since deleted. It seems unlikely that she will tweet about having private emails without the receipts to substantiate her claim.
We also know that love knows her Succession; in a recent episode, Kendall rigged speakers to interrupt her sister Siobhan (Shiv, to her friends) as she gave what was to be an important speech in front of the employees. “Rape Me,” a controversial song by Nirvana, the founding grunge band led by Love’s late husband Kurt Cobain, played over the speakers. Love said on Instagram that she has “never been so proud to endorse any of Kurt’s songs” for the show. “I’m sure wherever he is, he’s proud of it.
As of this writing, Musk hasn’t publicly responded to Love, but he apparently has his email address, so maybe they’ve sorted things out privately. If she wanted to receive one of those Bcc emails, the fallout from doing so would surely rival even the craziest of Succession’episodes.
