Tesla CEO Elon Musk once again sent his Twitter followers into a spin with his dive into the deep meme scene, pitting a number of older memes against other each – including a RIP Harame SoundCloud song.

Elon Musk is no stranger to memes, especially on Twitter. He memed an appearance on Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg’s Meme Review into life, alongside Rick and Morty’s Justin Roiland, in a bid to help the Swede in his fight for YouTube’s top subscriber spot against T-Series.

Following that long-awaited clip, the SpaceX head honcho followed up with a Call of Duty: Zombies revive meme based around the Mars Opportunity Rover finally going offline after 14 years.

YouTube / PewDiePieFans had been awaiting Musk’s appearance on PewDiePie’s ‘Meme Review’ for sometime.

Has Elon Musk got a music label?

Yet, his trip into the world of Tweeting memes is far from over, as he has found a new avenue to explore – SoundCloud songs.

Musk shared a SoundCloud link to a meme rap song called ‘RIP Harambe’ from an Emo G Records. The Emo G Records account listed Musk as it’s profile name but it’s unclear whether or not Musk is actually behind the Emo G Records account, or if he has stumbled upon something try to use his name in a joke.

Moments after sharing the link to the bizarre song, Musk followed up his initial tweet with: “I’m disappointed that my record label failed,” adding further to the weirdness of the whole thing and leaving puzzled onlookers even more confused.

Musk brings quality of emoji meme back 

He had earlier shared a Duck emoji, referring to a meme from 2018 where people ranked the different looks of emoji on different devices. The tweet racked up over eight thousand retweets and 59 thousand likes.

The Tesla CEO then responded to just how popular the tweet had been, posting: “The quality of emojis varies wildly,” again playing into the ranking meme. With the retweets and likes of the SoundCloud link tweet being way passed by the Duck emoji, Musk tweeted: “Duck emoji defeats Emo G Records. Crushing victory.”

It remains to be seen just if the Tesla boss reveals if he is actually behind the Emo G Records account and if so, if he releases any more ‘meme’ hits in the future.

Until then, he looks satisfied with sharing any meme he fancies with his army of Twitter followers.

A number of TikTok stars have hit out at paparazzi, asking them to stop “stalking” Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson after a video of them at the airport was uploaded to YouTube. 

With the success of TikTok around the globe, a number of creators like Charli and Dixie D’Amelio, Addison Rae, and Bryce Hall have become stars thanks to their viral videos. 

However, the fame and popularity that social media brings, fans want to know more. They’re desperate for updates on relationships, where their favorite stars are living, and how they’re getting on away from the TikTok videos. 

Many of TikTok’s stars will conduct interviews with paparazzi and other media outlets on a regular basis, but one has come under fire from TikTokjers for apparently “stalking” Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson.

Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s biggest star, and garners the most attention.

Kevin Wong posted a video of Charli and Chase reuniting at LAX. However, it didn’t go down well with some of the pair’s fellow TikTok stars. 

“You’re taking stalking to a new level. Give them some privacy,” Hype House founder Thomas Petrou said. He also added a simple message, asking Wong to stop as well. 

Additionally, Mia Haywood and Bryant Eslava posted similar messages as Petrou. “Did you really follow them to the airport? Chill with that,” said Mia. “Damn, this is too far Kevin,” added Bryant.

Wong responded with a comment of his own, claiming that he was already at the airport waiting for somebody else, and hadn’t actually followed the D’Amelio’s anywhere. 

“I was already at LAX waiting for someone to show up, then I saw a big white Rolls Royce drive around and saw Mr D’Amelio & Charli,” he said. 

Neither of Charli or Chase have responded to the drama themselves, and it might just be a case of others fighting the battle for them. 

We’ll just have to wait and see if any similar responses come up in the future, or if the pair decide to respond themselves.
