Daisy Barringer, a freelance writer and editor, said she hopes Tesla CEO and SpaceX founder Elon Musk dies in a Tesla fire after his appearance on Saturday Night Live (SNL).
Barringer wished for Musk’s demise after the businessman flashed the “O.K.” hand sign while hosting SNL. Barringer claimed that the hand sign is a symbol of white supremacists before locking her Twitter account after receiving blowback online (screenshots of her tweets can be viewed below.)
“Wait. Whaaaaaaaaa… did Elon Musk just … like… aggressively flash the white power sign during the Weekend Update? Please tell me I’m insane. Please. No really. Going to need you to tell me I’m insane,” Barringer tweeted.
