By now, you might think you’ve seen everything. However, reality always surpasses fiction, especially when it involves Elon Musk. The magnate has used his own platform, X, to poke fun at OpenAI’s crisis in some Andalusian ways.
Through a post shared on his X profile, Musk has used El Risitas to mock OpenAI‘s situation. Yes, just as you read. Below, we’ve included the post so you can appreciate it in all its glory.
As often happens in these situations, user reactions have been abundant, each one more original than the last. However, the award for the best response probably went to Andalucía Directo. The legendary Andalusian program replied to Musk’s post, demanding nothing less than compensation for image rights. The excerpt used belonged to “Ratones Coloraos,” an interview format hosted by Jesús Quintero and aired on Canal Sur in the early 2000s.
OpenAI and the dismissal of Sam Altman
The unexpected dismissal of Sam Altman and the departure of Greg Brockman have not left anyone indifferent. Following these departures, Emmett Shear (co-founder of Twitch) has been appointed as the new interim CEO. On the other hand, Altman’s unemployment didn’t last long, as Microsoft ended up hiring him to lead a new research team focused on artificial intelligence.
Like a house of cards, this seismic event at the top of OpenAI has ended up affecting its employees. Up to 505 workers have threatened to leave the company if Altman and Brockman are not reinstated, and they’re also demanding the resignation of the board of directors. However, new negotiations between the board and Altman might lead to the latter’s return as the CEO of OpenAI.
