Elon Musk has a lot of internet memes, partially due to his personal love of memes. The most recent meme on Twitter is calling him Space Karen.

Elon Musk is now dubbed “Space Karen”: Inside the latest meme

Karens are just really something, huh? Is it an insult? Is it a slur? Or is just a term for someone that is the worst and most entitled person you know? Either way, Elon Musk is one now. How did he get called a Space Karen on Twitter, sparking a brand new meme that we’re all thriving with currently? Why did this happen? And who is the hero that did the deed?

Here are the basic facts that you need to know. On Nov. 13, 2020, Elon Musk shared a tweet talking about COVID-19 testing. Now, Musk has been accused of criticizing the test for COVID-19 without really understanding what’s going on. In response to Musk’s tweet, @emmabell42 wrote the following:

@emmabell42 actually did a really great thread after the first tweet explaining why Musk’s results came back the way they did, amongst other things. Either way, a new nickname and meme for Elon Musk was born, calling him Space Karen. It even spun off and turned on Donald Trump – people called him White House Karen.

We’re surrounded by Karens, people. It’s a terrible thing. What’s not a terrible thing, however, is all the great memes that have arisen from it. So now that you know the story, let’s share some of the best Elon Musk memes that have taken Space Karen and run with it.

1. Obligatory Karen haircut time

That’s right. A truly amazing soul did the thing and Photoshopped the Karen haircut onto Musk’s head. Frankly, you can’t tell the difference, can you? 

2. Oh boy, they’re multiplying

It’s time to workshop a nickname for the character in space with the Karen haircut that’s not Space Karen. Maybe Galactic Karen? Moon Karen? Are we starting to make a Sailor Moon situation, but with Karens? What kind of world are we even living in? 

3. People are living for it

Elon Musk is definitely one of the more reviled men on the internet, so people are definitely having a great time with this meme.

4. You win at meme-ing bro

Oh boy. Everyone was calling Musk the real life Tony Stark or whatever. Didn’t he appear on The Simpsons’ once? And now he is Space Karen. It’s been a year, but this person has won that particular meme though. Good job! 

5. Recommended reading

One of the Space Karen originator’s friends has recommended us some reading, people! Definitely want to check that out later to get facts rather than whatever Space Karen is doing on his Twitter. You always have to love a good fact check.

6. November 2020 has been great

From the entire internet losing their minds over Destiel two weeks ago to Space Karen, November is actually looking like the best month of 2020 so far. So, you know, way to not ruin things, November. You’re picking up the slack and you should be saluted for it, you abstract concept of time!
