The CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, Elon Musk, took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the much-discussed performance by Sam Smith and Kim Petras at the Grammys, in which Smith dressed as the devil.
The performance attracted a lot of attention and criticism from various conservative figures, including Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, Donald Trump Jr., and Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
In his tweet, Elon Musk called the performance “End of days vibes” and added: “If that’s satan, we have nothing to worry about.”
His comments were in reference to Smith’s attire as the devil, complete with a top hat adorned with devil horns and a red latex outfit, surrounded by red-robed worshippers.
However, Smith’s performance wasn’t the only topic of discussion.
Marjorie Taylor Greene took to Twitter to push baseless conspiracy theories about the event being sponsored by Pfizer, a pharmaceutical company. Ted Cruz, the Republican senator for Texas, also denounced the performance as “evil.”
The Grammy’s featured Sam Smith’s demonic performance and was sponsored by Pfizer.
And the Satanic Church now has an abortion clinic in NM that requires its patients to perform a satanic ritual before services.
American Christians need to get to work.

Despite the criticism, Smith and Petras received recognition for their hard work as they won the Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Unholy.”
Petras became the first transgender woman to receive the award. Smith, who is non-binary, uses they/them pronouns.
Elon Musk is known for sharing his opinions on a wide range of topics, including LGBTQ issues, race, and transgender rights.
He recently commented on a hypothetical scenario involving the use of a racial slur, calling the ChatGPT response “concerning.”
The chatbot had responded that it’s “never morally permissible” to use a racial slur even if it would save millions of lives.
In another tweet, Musk expressed his views on the role of Twitter in shaping societal values.
He said: “Going forward, Twitter will be broadly accepting of different values, rather than trying to impose its own specific values on the world.”
