Comedian Larry David reportedly confronted Elon Musk over the latter’s public statements in support of Republican candidates. According to the newly released Walter Isaacson biography of Musk, David and Musk attended the wedding of businessman Ari Emanuel and fashion designer Sarah Staudinger last year, in Saint-Tropez, France. The co-creator of “Seinfeld” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” asked the billionaire, “Do you want to just murder kids in schools?”
The wedding took place just days after the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School, in Uvalde, Texas, where 19 young students and two teachers were murdered by a teenager wielding an AR-15. According to Isaacson, a “baffled and annoyed” Musk responded that he was “anti-kid murder,” to which David asked, “Then how could you vote Republican?” MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, who was nearby at the wedding, confirmed the confrontation, says Isaacson.
Representatives for David also confirmed to Insider that he said these things to Musk. David had explained to Isaacson that Musk’s posts on X (formerly Twitter) attacking the Democratic Party in service of Republicans were “sticking in my craw.”
