Elon Musk announced on Monday that he is considering suing the Anti-Defamation League to clear the X (formerly Twitter) platform name.
This comes after news broke that X is still down around 60 percent in US ad revenue as the ADL continues to put pressure on its advertisers to skip the wildly popular social media platform.
Further, it was revealed that the ADL has put pressure on X to deplatform popular anti-woke account Libs of TikTok, which is run by a conservative Jewish woman, Chaya Raichik.
Musk claimed that the ADL has been trying to see his platform destroyed by making erroneous claims that both he and X are “anti-semitic.”
The tech mogul additionally stressed that he is “pro free speech, but against anti-Semitism of any kind.”
These remarks from Musk come after ADL CEO Joseph Greenblatt made a post to X about a meeting he held with X CEO Linda Yaccarino pertaining to problems of so-called ‘hate speech’ on the platform. Hashtags for #BanTheADL started trending on X following the meeting.
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
