“Stop defaming me”: Elon Musk responds to criticism after reinstating Trump's Twitter account

Elon Musk received a wave of criticism after reinstating Donald Trump’s account on Twitter. In one of his responses, the tycoon responded with: “Hey, stop slandering me.”

Musk had promised that a moderating council would decide whether Donald Trump’s Twitter account would be reinstated. However, unexpectedly, the Tesla CEO submitted the decision to a poll on the social network and won, with 51.8% of the vote, the option to accept Trump on Twitter. Musk was quickly the target of criticism.

Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, shared: “That @elonmusk is allowing Donald Trump back on Twitter, apparently after a short survey, shows that he is not serious about protecting the platform from hate, harassment and misinformation.”.

In response, Musk only managed to answer: “Hey, stop slandering me!”.
