On April 22, 2024, a Facebook page named Love Style posted, “Elon Musk Fires Entire Cast of ‘The View’ After Acquiring ABC.” The first comment on the post led to an article on with the headline, “Elon Musk Shakes Up Television with Daring Acquisition and Dismissal.”

However, this was not a true story. Musk did not acquire ABC, nor was the cast of “The View” dismissed from the show. The article was likely written by an unknown artificial-intelligence (AI) tool, according to scans of the full text by AI-detection tools, and

Posts on other Facebook pages promoted the same article published by other websites. It was possibly a coordinated effort to spread the fictional story.

The Love Style Facebook page featured one of the most engaged-with posts but was not the first profile to share the story. Many websites that published the article hosted malicious content apparently meant to scam users. This malicious content included full-screen takeovers with potentially dangerous pop-up ads.

We searched Facebook for users who have publicly shared the article about Musk and “The View.” Based on their comments and captions, some of them seemingly believed the story.

“I really like this guy. ‘The View’ should have been gone a long time ago. Thank you, Elon!!,” one person remarked. “About time. Someone had to raise the intellectual standards of the American viewer,” another user wrote. “ONLY WATCHED IT A FEW TIMES AND THEY TICKED ME OFF,” someone else wrote.

There appears to be no shortage of false rumors about Musk, Goldberg, Behar and “The View,” as we’ve reported on numerous rumors about them in the past.

However, in the above-mentioned case, the websites posting the article did not have satire or parody labels.

We previously debunked a similar rumor that Musk offered $17 and a coupon for a free appetizer at Applebee’s to buy the “The View.”
