Elon Musk Invested $1B Into Mel Gibson and Mark Wahlberg’s ‘Un-Woke’ Production Studio?

On April 24, 2024, Esspots.com published an article with the headline, “Breaking: Elon Musk Invests $1 Billion in Mel Gibson and Mark Wahlberg’s New Un-Woke Production Studio.” The article posited that the billionaire wanted to support projects that aligned with this vision, and the studio was committed to “traditional values” and “non-woke” content.

The article said:

Musk, renowned for his innovative ventures in technology and space exploration, expressed his enthusiasm for this new creative endeavor, citing a desire to support projects aligned with his vision for cultural authenticity and creative freedom. The collaboration between Musk, Gibson, and Wahlberg represents a fusion of Silicon Valley ingenuity with Hollywood craftsmanship, aiming to challenge prevailing industry norms.

The decision to back this un-woke production studio underscores Musk’s broader interest in disrupting traditional paradigms across various sectors. Known for his outspoken views on culture and society, Musk has frequently critiqued the prevailing narrative in mainstream media and entertainment, advocating for a return to more genuine, relatable storytelling.

The Facebook page associated with the website, SpaceX Fanclub, also shared a post with the same headline on April 21, 2024, adding the article in the comments section days later. Many commenters under the post believed what it was saying, with statements like, “You are a Good Man Elon.… So is Mel Gibson and Mark Wahlberg.”

However, the above story originates from a site that describes itself as satirical in nature. SpaceX Fanclub’s introduction section states, “We post SATIRE, nothing on this page is real.”

This is not the first time we’ve covered related satirical stories from Esspots.com. The site has previously falsely claimed that Wahlberg and Gibson were starting a “non-woke” production studio while declaring “Hollywood is saved.” It also falsely wrote that Wahlberg refused to work with Tom Hanks, saying the latter was a “woke creep.”
