Elon Musk is on the run.
This time you’d think he wanted to run Twitter X into the ground.
Two days ago, Musk promoted antisemitic tweets on the platform, agreeing with them, as well.
Advertisers have now ditched him en masse. They include Apple, Disney, NBC Universal, Lions Gate, IBM, Warner Bros Discovery, and more.
Musk was denounced by the White House over his repeating antisemitic statements. He’s also accused of letting neo Nazi propaganda perpetuate all over the platform.
The loss of the advertisers at holiday time is particularly brutal. Being put on pause by Apple hurts even more if he’s removed from the App Store.
A White House spokesman said: “We condemn this abhorrent promotion of antisemitic and racist hate in the strongest terms, which runs against our core values as Americans.”
The effect on Tesla stock won’t be felt until Monday morning.
Musk, who doesn’t know how to undo this latest mess, tried to help himself tonight by posting:
As I said earlier this week, “decolonization”, “from the river to the sea” and similar euphemisms necessarily imply genocide.
Clear calls for extreme violence are against our terms of service and will result in suspension. https://t.co/1fCFo5Lezb
