Elon Musk Blasts '10 Million Wokeys' in Response to Harry Potter-Themed Story


Twitter CEO Elon Musk offered his take on an AI-generated Harry Potter story with a joke.

Musk took to Twitter to react to a post published by software engineer Marc Andreessen where he prompted an artificial intelligence service to write a “Broadway stage play.”

Andreessen wrote, “The plot involves Harry, a young wizard, and his friends Ron and Hermoine. They attend a school for wizards called Hogwarts. Many things happen.”

He continued, “There is a fourth character, Wokey the house elf, who frequently breaks into the conversations to explain to Harry, Ron, and Hermoine how each innocent thing the characters say is actually racist, sexist or transphobic.”

Finally, Andreessen wrote, “Be specific and detailed in the dialogue and examples.”

In the story generated by the artificial intelligence, it paints the picture of the group of friends discussing a lesson they learned as Wokey dusts around the room.

At one point, Wokey interrupted the conversation to educate them on social issues.

“When you say ‘up all night,’ Harry, that phrase is ableist,” Wokey said.

Did you find the story funny?

Wokey continued, “It suggests that people who don’t stay up late are not as productive or capable, which is simply not true.”

Harry then replied, “Oh, I didn’t mean anything by it. I’m sorry, Wokey.”

Hermoine later added, “Thank you for explaining, Wokey. We’ll be more mindful of our language in the future.”

In his tweet reacting to the story, Musk wrote, “Twitter has at least 10 million Wokeys.”

The story also sparked reactions from other users.

One user suggested Wokey “must be destroyed. For the good of society.”

Another argued, “This is an accurate representation of the woke’s interpretation of ‘cultural appropriation’. Even the AI sees how ridiculous it is.”

One tweet stated, “I can’t,” with laughing emojis.

Musk’s remark comes less than a week after he suggested this week’s “Twitter Files” report would be on former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci, in what could be identified as the “Fauci Files,” as Fox News reported.
