Elon Musk “refuses” to enter Berghain over ‘PEACE’ sign

The billionaire tech mogul complained about the sign during a recent trip to Berlin

Elon Musk appears to have refused to enter German nightclub Berghain after taking offence to the night spot’s ‘PEACE’ sign.

The billionaire tech mogul took to Twitter to complain about the sign during a trip to Berlin over the weekend.

“They wrote PEACE on the wall at Berghain! I refused enter,” Musk wrote.

It is unclear whether he was refused entry into the club or whether he was so offended by the sign that he decided not enter Berghain.

A follow-up tweet suggests that it was likely to be the latter, as he added: “Peace. Peace? I hate the word. Those who do care about peace (myself aspirationally included) don’t need to hear it. And those who don’t care about peace? Well…”

His comments were swiftly mocked by Twitter users with one writing: “I think you misunderstood here something essential! Peace, Love & Unity is the founding motto of the Techno culture! Berghain THE Techno temple in Berlin.”

Another added: “Can we put our best reporters on figuring out exactly what happened to Elon Musk at the Berghain door? I’m not going to be satisfied until we have the surveillance camera footage with audio.”

It comes after Musk recently became Twitter’s biggest shareholder after purchasing a 9.2 per cent stake in the company.

Musk has a muddied history with Twitter. In December, after it was announced that Parag Agrawal was taking over from Dorsey as Twitter’s CEO, Musk posted a meme showing Agrawal as Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin and Dorsey as Soviet secret police head Nikolai Yezhov being shoved into water.

Earlier this year, he criticised Twitter’s announcement about NFT profile pictures, calling it “annoying”.
