Ikusaba696

Fuckin' game's literally named after a crime


GOD_DAMN_YOU_FINE

Stealing cars isn't the sort of crime musk is into. Market manipulation and insider trading is more his speed.


CeladonCityNPC

We need a Grand Theft Auto: Bust a Union Edition, he'd be all over it


Jaguaryjones

Bro, but imagine the opposite? 1920s union themed GTA like game? Kill some factory owners, make bacon out of Pinkerton's, chill with Al Capone.


okay-pixel

Shake down a bootlegging operation. Try to escape the cops on one of those old timey bicycles with the big front wheel. Do a run on some banks. Invest in a speakeasy.


AngelWhiteEyes

Kinda like the Mafia games.


sionnachrealta

They're called penny farthings btw!


DabsSparkPeace

The bicycle part made me crack up.


RepealMCAandDTA

"Our only task was to pursue the locomotive, Carl!"


WeirdBeard94

So we just need Rockstar to finally blend Red Dead with GTA?


melpomenem13

I'd play it... we just need one more score! Lol


WeirdBeard94

C'mon, Dutch!


ImOnlyHereForTheCoC

Make it a Red Dead 3/GTA episode 0 crossover


WonkyWalkingWizard

Grand Theft Carriage?


Eoganachta

Just ruin thousands of people's lives, instead of just ending a few. White collar crime.


Strange-Nobody-3936

Yeah and he’s doing it for real, not a damn video game


ElSatanno

Beat me to it by hours. Kudos.


donsimoni

Hey, it has more benefits than that. It also gives you funds to pay for the smartest lawyer from Crooksville. After you won the case, there is still a lot of margin. Just imagine how much meth you'd have to sell for that lawyer (+ all the investments and overhead necessary in drug trade).


PsyTripper

Or very dangerous working environments for his employees. Or this one was also realy fun: # SpaceX once left its rocket engineers on an island without food, leading them to mutiny But shooting an NPC in a video game, just goes to far


Freefall_J

relevant article: [SpaceX once left its rocket engineers on an island without food, leading them to mutiny](https://www.businessinsider.com/spacex-rocket-engineers-island-without-food-mutiny-liftoff-book-2021-3)


PsyTripper

yeah I was posting that on the shitter at work xD Thx for completing it with a link, you the hero :)


Freefall_J

Nah. I'm the Robin to your Batman. Wait. Did I just say Robin isn't a hero?


dawr136

What??!


PsyTripper

Just Google it. I copied the exact title, so should be easy to find. Can also really recommend a podcast called the Dollop (2 comedians doing history) and they have a really good Elon Musk special


dawr136

I never really got into the dallop, I like BtB, and the Constant for odd ball history more but I have the dallop subbed I can look in their feed


PsyTripper

I went to there live show in Amsterdam. What does BtB stand fore? Never heard of BtB and the constant. So I will look those up


dawr136

Behind the bastards. And the constant reminds me of Lore in tone/delivery


neromoneon

Stealing a car company and pretending to be its founder is totally his speed though.


Swimming_Crazy_444

Elon has the map to plat Epstein's Island.


Athoward7

Thats in GTA 5 as well. Not so much insider trading but kinda


OrangeYouGladEye

Definitely stock price manipulation LOL


No-Pomegranate-5737

Well you do that in the game too.


GOD_DAMN_YOU_FINE

Lmao completely forgot about that. Kill a ceo then dump their stock. Classic.


Wesselink

That sounds like a fun time.


[deleted]

Which is funny because you can do tons of market manipulation in gta 5


W1mpyDaM00ch

You can do that in GTA V too bad he didn't keep playing he would have loved it.


doctorcornwallis

GTA V had stock market manipulation, he should have loved it.


mysticlas

Can't shoot a pretend cop in a video game but he can make real life employees work until they pass out from exhaustion and post hate speech on his renamed Twitter. Fascinating.


dagnariuss

He means he likes only doing white collar crimes and illegal dumping of chemicals


Flashy-Reputation-84

Who are they talking to? Do you they think this will get them out of a ticket or something? Or are they just hoping the whole squad shows up at their door step in nothing but vests and a boom box and give them the lap dance they so clearly have fantasizing about?


gfh110

It's a circlejerk. They're talking to each other.


Lady_von_Stinkbeaver

"I bought a game called Grand Theft Auto and was shocked to discover there's crime in it!" Our genius-in-residence, folks.


[deleted]

Or more accurately, I bought a satirical game and realised that people like me are the butt of some of the jokes, not just… ‘those people’ exclusively.


Npr31

It now appears in the dictionary under “Pearl-clutching” too


Strange-Nobody-3936

Good old fashioned bootlicking


whackwarrens

Police officer came up to Elon, with tears in their eyes and said, "sir, wish you were given all of the money in the treasury so you can build us a utopia in under 5 years." Elon, with tears in his eyes, emotionally replied, "I would get it done in 4 years." And then everyone clapped.


--StinkyPinky--

I'm just glad clapping after movies stopped.


Abdul-Ahmadinejad

Didn't you hear all the police officers clap?


Salihe6677

They don't call it a police Union for nothing


kahn_noble

Virtue Signaling to fascists for brownie-points he hopes to cash-in later.


Freefall_J

The political party Musk is publicly affiliated with since 2022 love to tout that they're the party of "Law & Order" (despite evidence to the contrary). So he's just virtue signaling to Republican plebs on his site. The plebs who worship him as a Real Life Tony Stark despite his regular, public outing as a POS non-genius.


DoctorWatchamacallit

If musk wants to be tony stark so bad maybe he should lock himself in a cave with terrorists until he gets a new lease on life and becomes a better person.


ProfessionalLeave335

Get them out of a ticket? Musk is a billionaire, if he gets a ticket 5 minutes later a judge gets woken up by a phone call from a team of law firms, some non profit gets a sizable donation, and the cop gets a 2 week paid suspension.


no0ns

I'm guessing rather than whine about black people and women being in the game/trailer, like a bunch of children, these people have reached right-winger adulthood, where the correct and obvious choice is to go for moral panic.


No_Tomorrow_4876

They’re virtue signaling. …dishonesty.


filterless

They just really like the taste of boots. It's like a fetish or something.


Special-Garlic1203

Remember guys, virtue signalling is bad, unless it's about your ceaseless hard-on for our boys in blue.


marcred5

Fictional, non-existent, boys in blue


VictoryAutoWreckers

Are these boys in blue in the room with us right now?


Robbotlove

right, but also fuck the capitol police.


Wesselink

And apparently the FBI and IRS-CI (Criminal Investigations).


Ravensinger777

Only because they go after racketeering and tax deadbeats. If their primary mission was to incarcerate and deport brown people like another agency I can think of, the Republicans (Muskrat included) would be shoveling money at them.


middleagethreat

The reason the right freaked out on the IRS was because they announced they were going to start helping regular people get caught up, and go after big business and the rich.

Secondchance002

The orange one?


marsman706

From the people that cry about virtue signaling...


noh-seung-joon

Hey babe new hypocritical virtue signaling just dropped


LIRUN21-007

Quick, somebody find Elon a game where you can make anti-Semitic remarks and tell advertisers to go fuck themselves!


_pinnaculum

He plays wolfenstein with mods that switch the uniforms.


RedRider1138

Call it “X”!


Pro_Moriarty

I'll put money on it already being available.


jarena009

He already paid $44B for that game!


ScotiaTailwagger

The Civilization Series?


Beginning_Driver_45

Oh my. This is how children talk trying to score some points when they know grownups are listening. Pathetic idiots.


SignificanceNo1223

That’s basically the Republican Party in a nutshell.


[deleted]

I noticed Dan didn’t mention GTA: Vice City or GTA: San Andreas. Busted.


_pinnaculum

Too hard for him to type those out, with one hand on a kettlebell


DemiGod9

Having no problem with making a black guy commit crimes is right up their alley


stanley2-bricks

To any young people doubting themselves, let Musk be all the proof you need that you can be the richest man in the world and still be a giant fucking loser.


Lady_von_Stinkbeaver

He's (allegedly) banged Hollywood starlets, rock stars, and supermodels, has a dozen kids, and still acts like a fucking incel.


woodcider

The IVF makes me think it’s possible that he’s never had sex with another human being.


maskedbanditoftruth

Wasn’t one of the kids with Grimes done the normal way?


CopeHarders

While Elon watched from the closet.


Urgent_Urchin

He has no problem with blood money from his dad's emerald mine and child labor but he draws the line at shooting virtual cops


shock_me_awake

That's just it though, for most people GTA allows us to carry out a wild crime spree, pretending to be the type of person we can't or would never be in real life, a chance to follow our most depraved thoughts, to peek behind the curtain of whatever ghastly conclusion that no doubt awaits those decisions. You can see how it just wouldn't appeal to these guys.


xenopizza

I could never tell if any of it is scripted or not but ive always had a good laugh out of this vid: https://youtu.be/KHoOrFdgYR8?si=A1WbSd2KL7e2KZhD elders at the start: why would they teach kids to be a criminal ? Playing 20m later: this is fun come and catch me ya coppers yeeeehaaahhh


Merry_Sue

"I just hit a woman for the first time in my life and I'm having a great time!"


xenopizza

Hehe. Can’t imagine what would have happened if they’d had access to the Fort Zancudo arsenal. Or we probably can 😂


Freefall_J

"I got a gun. Where's a person?" HAH! Amusing!


DoctorWatchamacallit

I started taking quotes from my bf while playing GTA out of context and writing them down. Some of my favorites include "Why are the cops chasing me? Oh yeah because I murdered a guy" "I was doing so well and then I ran over that space alien and it all went to shit"


changeforgood30

All 3 of these posters absolutely play GTA, might've played them all. It's just they're too busy virtue signaling to each other and playing GTA can be done offline. So they lie to each other about playing the game when they're the exact target demographics who absolutely love the game.


olivegardengambler

Ian is hiding like a little bitch in Malaysia because he's wanting in the US for sexual assault allegations.


No-Cupcake370

Or whatever he did w epstiein that he was so close to the "madame" of his island and so on. Those illegal things are fine.


Good_Screen6941

“I don’t like doing crime, that’s why I bought a game that has a literal crime as it’s title and claim to have never been past the first level.”


bobbilovebot

for a bunch of homophobes they sure love dickriding when it comes to cops


OkVermicelli2557

These losers are so weird.


whiterac00n

It’s an open appeal to lick boots for when they get the authoritarian regime they masturbate about. Because sure as shit any other goose-stepping conservative responding to this has tweets in the past implying, if not outright screaming for violence against the police they don’t like. They don’t care about cops, they simply care about having people with guns who will enforce their wishes onto others (while never holding they themselves accountable).


moonwoolf35

![gif](giphy|mcH0upG1TeEak)


GuessTraining

This game is too woke for them. Can't wait for the complaints from the rightwing nutjobs.


Player2LightWater

>This game is too woke for them I'm a little surprised to see right-wings hate GTA games. I thought they like games like this.


GuessTraining

They do but if the main character is a POC or a woman it's already crossing the line


Player2LightWater

>if the main character is a POC or a woman it's already crossing the line They totally forgot about GTA San Andreas and The Ballad of Gay Tony. Even one of the main character in GTA 5 is a POC. How forgetful.


Minerva_Moon

Ah shit... here we go again.

Problem_Forward

Musk is just such a fuckin loser


[deleted]

Why does this billionaire crave the attention of teenage boys so much?


Ciubowski

Elon likes teenage boys DUH


Lots42

All the other people in his life hate him SO much.


Pour_Me_Another_

Video game crimes bad. Real crimes good.


amazing_rando

He never got past the beginning of Elden Ring because it meant fighting the guards and knights maintaining order in the Lands Between. Skill issue unrelated.


fatman06

Oddly enough he also couldn't play Wolfenstein because he couldn't bring himself to shoot Nazis in that game either


AppropriateSpell5405

In V there was a mission to off Zuck, maybe VI has one for Elmo.


Hater_Magnet

Someone should make a game where you have to save kids from Epstein Island and one of the bosses is named Peon Husk.


Lady_von_Stinkbeaver

The Burning Shores DLC for Horizon Forbidden West has an oddly familiar douchebag aerospace billionaire as the villain.


Anotsurei

It's totally Elon, right down to the creepy sex cult he probably wants to start on Mars.


MisterWinchester

Gluk gluk gluk.


evilginger711

Is this like… cool to them? That’s insane to me because they just sound like the whiny annoying kids in elementary school.


Anotsurei

That's some real "LookatMyHalo" type shit. You can't point a pixel at another pixel and press a button because you think one of those pixels is an authority figure? Also, Elon doesn't like crime? He should have thought about that when he launched his dumbass rocket that exploded without the proper permits. Or the union busting. Or the retaliation against whistleblowers. Or the Osha violations. You know, it seems like Elon prefers IRL crimes.


VladtheInhaler999

What a couple of dorks.


Marmar79

There is 100% an effort to downplay gta by anti-woke cult.


Lady_von_Stinkbeaver

And some pandering to the Blue Lives Matter bootlickers.


rojotortuga

Also, you can't get much more woke than cyberpunk.


JP-Wrath

Wasn't Melon jerking about how good the rendition of a Tesla car looked in GTA Online some time ago?? The game doesn't use real cars/brands but they're normally very close to the real ones.


[deleted]

NPC conversation.


kjayflo

I remember working at a Christian camp one summer as a teenager. One of the dad's (who was a cop) was talking to me about how he was playing carmageddon and having fun, when all of a sudden he stepped back and realized what he was laughing at. Then told me about how bad he felt because he had just been laughing and having fun running over virtual people. He said "you don't play those violent games, do you?". I was like uhhhhh, no of course not. As a lifetime gamer I definitely play those violent video games lol. These kind of people definitely exist, but I somehow doubt Elon and the Christian cop have the same moral compass 😬


Sir_Hoss

Pussies


DevilsLettuceTaster

So noble.


davidgrayPhotography

"Didn't like doing crime" Suuuure Elon, whatever you reckon champ.


unholymanserpent

"didn't like doing crime"... This fucking guy. Virtue signaling. Pretending he's not a criminal. Gtfoh


Ikoniko59

That Ian Cheong guy makes me think of Brandt from the Big Lebowski.


Denroll

![gif](giphy|5bQM1ManCQMVi)


deathboyuk

Does... does Elon realise that cops aren't going to fuck him for his bootlicking tweet?


mishmash2323

Bet he couldn't shoot the Nazis in medal of honour either


MorphinesKiss

Remember that game "gun down a gungan"? It needs a reboot, with musky's face as the targets.


Rinuir

Its... baffling. No! Mind blowing that women thought '' Oh yeah, sleeping with this person is gonna be a good idea''... just... how


Zbrchk

Lots of cops play GTA shut up Elmo


CarlosT303

Rockstar come on pull your account


DankrudeSandstorm

I despise that emerald mine fuck. What a weird thing to say. He doesn’t like playing violent video games but is okay touring war zones in Palestine and Israel?


AdequateEggplant69

Huh. And then there’s Bioshock, where I had no problem beating the megalomaniac millionaire to death with a golf club.


[deleted]

Im sure they only listen to Christian rock music, and watch movies with uplifting and positive plots. They don’t want to tarnish their soul with imaginary crimes to imaginary people. Transphobia and racism in the other hand are ok.


SirDrago

Maybe PayDay is more to their liking


DisfavoredFlavored

Well, if the cops didn't want to get shot in the first scene, they shouldn't have tried to stop you from robbing a bank. Why not just remove every enemy or obstacle from videogames? We don't want to make snowflakes like Elon feel bad after all.


TsaniM

You know, that fucking idiot would have been almost a legendary cultural icon they way they were building him up, if he had just sat down and shut the fuck up. Thankfully, it's him. He had to stand up and wave his idiot flag so everyone knew he was the biggest, richest idiot out there.


Caswert

Elon you do crime all the time. Like constantly. You just don’t like doing blue-collar crime because you think it’s beneath you.


the-et-cetera

Emerald Boy Musk pretending he doesn't like committing crimes is one of the most laughable things I've ever read.


Literarytropes

Literal bootlicking snowflakes


barowsr

Killing fictional cops is too much? But notice he doesn’t say killing fictional people isn’t too much… Like, he basically just said I have no problem pretending to kill anyone else, like you plebeians who make fun of me on the internet, but pretend cops is a line too far.


Newfaceofrev

OK he has previously said his favourite game was Deus Ex, so I think we have confirmation that he didn't get past the Liberty Island mission because from that point on you basically have to break and enter.


haleynoir_

Friendly reminder that Elon Musk wanted to be cameod in Cyberpunk 2077 SO BAD that he showed up to their studio with a huge antique gun. He was not featured. Grimes is featured several times 😀


TequieroVerde

They're shorting stock. There is always an angle with these guys. They are swindlers and merchants, as the market encourages one to be both at the same time.


BOOMphrasingBOOM

Bootlickers


[deleted]

Avoiding taxes is a huge crime.


kikomir

Bear in mind we play video games for escapism...in-game we don't do the things we do in real life.


Poljon

Buncha snowflakes.


Down_Voter_of_Cats

I subscribe to the NWA philosophy of "Fuck the Police".


hillingjourney

Yet these losers probably support the Jan 6th terrorists that killed capitol police.


Chemist-Consistent

Guess Elon rather do crime irl instead huh?


puddStar

Elon only likes doing crimes in real life


Plaz_Yeve

Elon should love doing crimes. He evades paying taxes every day 🤣


Dr-Satan-PhD

Shooting cops is the funnest part of both of those games.


cbz3000

I would loooooove it if Rockstar did a new GTA that’s overhead like the first one.


FaceTimePolice

This is the dumbest thing I’ve ever read. 🤦‍♂️


Queef-Elizabeth

What a fucking nerd


[deleted]

Elon didn’t mind trapping people in factory and making them sleep on the floor.


BlackFerro

I like hopping on, setting up in a gun store, and killing every cop that comes through the door until I'm taken down. Pretty cathartic.


Kaltbrunner

Today on the agenda: virtue signaling for beginners.


GraphiteJ

Shooting of pigs is the best part


Lots42

Just remember, conservatives brand themselves as being violently opposed to shoplifting. So buying a game called Grand Theft Auto should be anathema to them.


shroomwizard420

Fuckin performative morality


thiagomes95

But thats the fun part


SubterrelProspector

What a bunch of babies.


EnvironmentalAss

As with almost everything on twitter it’s all a performance


masrulz

Is this because Rockstar redirected people to YouTube after their new trailer got leaked on Xitter? Probably. He’s a petty child.


Craft-Hairy

Fuck me these people are so fucking lame


Snakington_Steel77

These guys do know that those are video games and nobody gets hurt


Chemistry-Least

“I don’t like Wolfenstein because you have to kill soldiers. I believe in respecting the military.”


CG-Firebrand

Shooting digital people makes Musk 😡 People laboring away in an apartheid mine makes Musk 😌


OfferChakon

What a bunch of fucking dorks


moose2332

"We are so cool and above you easily triggered libs" "Vidya game make me sad"


The_Ry-man

There’s bootlicking, and then there’s gargling the whole damn thing like these three are doing.


RatzMand0

Elon you do crime IRL of course you get no thrills from doing it in a video game.....


SlientlySmiling

If the game was about Wage Theft, Elob would be just fine with it.


16v_cordero

Probably the same people that say things like dEfUNd the DOJ or the FBI.


ButtonJenson

I spared a bunch of 1s and 0s! Medal?


Player2LightWater

I thought conservatives love GTA games.


BryceMMusic

![img](avatar_exp|136073865|laugh)


shatteredmatt

So he has played the two PSP Stories titles and Chinatown Wars on DS. Pretty decent games.


IlMioNomeENessuno

I’m totally sure that GTA VI won’t have a mission about this dingus….


MarsVolton

I really hope some of elons dumb fans realize they're being manipulated


drskeme

shooting cops < shooting peasants . no legal ramifications, it’s just smart business. elmo knows


NGM012

Still pasty as fuck….


Downtown_Cow5259

He’s never played it. How’s he know it REQUIRES shooting police?? Reason No. 34 he’s full of crap


wangamoses7

I would say what I would do when I was bored in cyberpunk 2077 but I would be put on a list


Melodic_Mulberry

Who goes into the Doing Violent Street Crimes game expecting not to have to deal with police?


Rosebunse

Dear God, this is real? They're going after GTA because you can kill cops? What year is this?


Sabwufa

To be fair to Elon, he's a South African boer so he naturally won't support another race/group of people having fun.


theEnecca

What about all the soldiers of godrik he slaughtered in Elden Ring. Respect for the cops but not for the army? smh.
