Fauci over his changing public health statements during the coronavirus pandemic, and especially over Fauci’s previous argument that his criticism represents disrespect for science.

Musk replied, “Any person who says tending to them is tending to science can’t be seen as a specialist.”

Musk has spoken of going after Fauci, and his announcement indicates that Twitter will move away from taking action against those spreading misinformation on Covid and other topics. The main tweet went so far as to post a meme mocking liberals who “blindly” follow science.
