Time magazine unveiled its ‘Person of the Year’ yesterday, giving the title in 2021 to billionaire Elon Musk.
The title, which has previously gone to the likes of George W Bush and Melinda Gates, is not necessarily in recognition of a ‘good’ person but of an individual who has had the most influence on events for any given year, be it for good or bad. In Musk’s case, some see it mostly as bad.
The Chaser today unveiled their own version of the Time cover, revising the title so as to read ‘Cunt of the Year’.
Wrote Chaser, John Delmenico: “The man, who has spent much of the pandemic lobbying against Covid-safe policies that would keep his workers safe, was hailed by Time’s editors as one of the biggest cunts they’d ever encountered.
“Elon Musk has spent much of the pandemic selling off his fortune in case tax laws in America change so that off-shore banking, stock-based wages and crypto money laundering won’t allow billionaires to avoid tax anymore.
“He dreams of living on Mars in the hope of avoiding international law, even though international laws mainly just protect basic human rights and human dignity. Lately Musk even likes to live-tweet his union busting.
“After everything Musk has ever said and done, the man deserves to be remembered alongside other winners like Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, Rudy Giuliani and Adolf Hitler.”
Musk has often had to shake off haters since being brought as a rich, privileged white guy in South Africa.
Currently he is worth an estimated US$255 billion and is the founder, CEO and chief engineer at SpaceX though some have said he’s hardly ever picked up a tool.
Whenever he’s caught out doing something immoral, Musk likes to notch it up to his Autism Spectral Disorder.
Some cunt, alright.
