Twitter CEO Elon Musk reinstated the official account of former President Donald Trump. The reinstatement of the former president of the United States caused liberals and celebrities to suffer a complete meltdown.
Musk ran a poll asking Twitter users if Trump should be reinstated on Twitter. The 24-hour Twitter poll resulted in 51.8% of users voting “Yes” to reinstate Trump, compared to 48.2% of users saying to permanently ban Trump. More than 15 million Twitter users voted in Musk’s poll.
Musk tweeted, “The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated.”
Twitter was quickly overflown with reactions, some positive, some negative. And while a lot of people praised Musk for reinstating Trump, he did face some criticism, particularly from liberal Twitter users and celebrities.
Here are some responses:
“How many Americans will die because @elonmusk brought @realDonaldTrump back onto Twitter? He’s Back and every American who dies because of @realDonaldTrump being back on Twitter is @ElonMusk’s fault,” tweeted David Leavitt.
“Elon Musk is letting a man who led a violent Insurrection to overthrow the United States Government back on this platform. Letting the Lies and Disinformation continue to poison the American bloodstream,” added filmmaker Rob Reiner.
“Any advertiser still funding Twitter should immediately pause all advertising now,” commented NAACP president Derrick Johnson.
“There it is. He paid $44 billion and destroyed Twitter to reinstate Trump,” commented liberal writer Julia Ioffe.
Blink 182 singer Tom DeLonge also weighed in, writing, “Elon is a trail blazer holding massive insecurities. His desire to be funny, and cool is loud. He is seemingly most moved by, literally, people just liking him? It now seems like a disease to me? But supporting this racist, treasonous f*** makes me want vomit and quit Twitter.”
“With Trump back on Twitter, it’s a good time to watch this Jan 6 hearing. It covers each of Trump’s tweets that day, including those that have been deleted, and features multiple Trump WH staff describing his inexcusable conduct during the violence,” wrote Rep. Liz Cheney.
“WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? This a**hole is going to give that lying sack of s**t another crack at the brass ring! Vote NO to reinstate him on TWITTER!” panicked actress Bette Midler.
