Elon Musk says he will not be signing any autographs ever again (video)


Tesla & SpaceX CEO, Chief Twit of Twitter, and the world’s richest billionaire Elon Musk just said that he will not be doing any more autographs from now on. He said this to a small crowd of fans as he came out of an airport terminal a few days ago.

Since Elon Musk bought Twitter in October, he has been traveling between San Francisco and Austin a lot to manage the affairs of his companies with HQs in California and Texas.

So, this was probably the Oakland, CA Airport where Musk’s fans were already expecting him to come out of the General Aviation Terminal. As soon as he appeared from the terminal, guys started requesting his autograph signatures but Musk refused from a distance.

“To be clear, I’m not doing any more signings ever again,” Elon Musk said to the people waiting in line to get his autograph. Someone asked if he’s not signing even tonight, and Musk said “No” while he was surrounded by his bodyguards.

Elon Musk’s recent changes to Twitter, political comments, and reinstating the former US President Donald Trump’s account have attracted a significant amount of hate towards him. These factors must have raised security concerns for Elon Musk who’s one of the most important and influential people of the 21st century.

The security concerns and political debate on Twitter are resulting in a distance between Elon Musk and his fans both in the online and the real worlds. Just last year before his SNL appearance, he was swarmed by fans in New York and he freely gave signings to them.

This is the first time Elon Musk has openly refused to give signings to his fans. This might put a dent in the passionate community of Tesla & SpaceX enthusiasts he has built over the past decade — which Twitter seems to have changed in a matter of few months.

A lucky Elon Musk fan got an autograph on Elon Musk’s Times Square picture with a Tesla Roadster a few years ago.
