Elon Musk files lawsuit against Whoopi Goldberg for ‘hate speech’ Since it was first established, the American legal system has undergone several amendments. The law has been amended several times to deal with such offenses and undesirable conduct which were quite unheard of.
The use of language that is harmful or discriminatory towards a person, group or organization is called “hate speech”. This can include any type of communication that attacks, threatens, or promotes negative attitudes towards a specific group of people.
This type of speech is considered a crime in many jurisdictions. Twitter CEO Elon Musk has filed a hate speech lawsuit against Whoopi Goldberg, claiming the allegations apply to Goldberg’s entire tenure on The View. According to Musk’s original announcement, many allegations have been made and many people have been downvoted.
A comment about the lawsuit was solicited from America’s Last Line of Defense’s own ace reporter Joe Barone. “I don’t know what is happening. When someone expresses hatred against you, how can you take legal action against him.
There is no such thing as a “26th Amendment”, nor is there any legal remedy available to someone who publicly insults you. I think this is the worst article Phyllis Gunnington has ever written.
To elicit a response, Gunnington could count on the habitual paranoia of conservatives and the resistance of “woke” culture. Will it work properly? He often makes mistakes. Whoopi Goldberg announced that she will no longer be on micro-blogging site Twitter. He announced the news on his talk show The View.
Another celebrity, American TV host Whoopi Goldberg has announced her exit from Twitter. Citing a chaotic week when it comes to Twitter for Elon Musk, Whoopi Goldberg announced she would no longer be on the micro-blogging site. She announced the news on her talk show The View and ironically, the clip was shared by the talk show’s team on Twitter!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Whoopi Goldberg said, “Elon Musk has been on Twitter for over a week and the place is a mess.” She said, “I’m going out today because I think it’s too messy, and I’m tired of some kind of approach block that keeps coming back.
Goldberg also outlined every sudden announcement Musk has made since taking control of Twitter, including slashing the price of the new Blue Tick program to US$8, and layoffs and redeployments. He also pointed out how Twitter shut down Kathy Griffin’s account for pretending to be Elon Musk.
She is not the first celebrity to leave a Twitter post since Elon Musk’s takeover. American supermodel Gigi Hadid is also no longer on Twitter, thanks to Elon Musk! Gigi announced her exit from Twitter on Instagram amid massive layoffs, including from the human rights team.
Criticizing Musk over his leadership, Gigi wrote, “Finally, but especially with his new leadership, this is becoming more and more of a vehicle for hate and bigotry, and that’s not where I want to be.
“Please accept my apologies that being the main fan I’ve had the delight of interfacing with for 10 years by means of Twitter, however I can’t say that I can’t be a place of refuge for anybody, nor a social stage that safeguards them from hurt.” accomplishes more.”
The world’s richest entrepreneur further quipped that he hopes the servers don’t melt down after celebrities including Amber Heard, Sara Bareilles and Grey’s Shonda Rhimes quit the microblogging platform.
Twitter’s new chief executive Elon Musk on Monday claimed that its usage has reached an all-time high since his takeover, even as its users range from American supermodel Gigi Hadid to iconic actress-comedian-host Whoopi. Including Goldberg. The celebrities have left the stage.
Amber Heard, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles and Grey’s Anatomy producer Shonda Rhimes had quit the microblogging platform. Some concerns about what Musk would have to offer were left unaddressed. The retired professional wrestler and actor cited on Facebook that he is taking a ‘break’ from the stage. Others, such as author Stephen King, have considered whether or not they should remain on the site.
Meanwhile, internal frequently asked questions (FAQs) shared with its sales team claimed that the platform’s monetized daily user (mDAU) growth exceeded 20 percent since Musk took the reins of the microblogging platform.
The FAQ was to be used by the sales team to negotiate with advertisers. The FAQ states that the platform has added more than 15 million MDAUs since it stopped reporting financials as a public company at the end of the second quarter, “passing the quarterly billion mark”. These figures run counter to expectations that followers will not stick with the platform after Musk’s takeover as hateful content continues to rise.
While an FAQ aimed at advertisers claimed that “hate speech levels remain within historical norms, representing 0.25 percent to 0.45 percent of tweets per day among millions of people”. In his address to advertisers following the acquisition, Musk said, “Twitter aspires to be the most respected advertising platform in the world that strengthens your brand and grows your enterprise”.
Indeed, last week several US corporates including General Mills, United Airlines and Audi of America reported temporarily halting ads on Twitter despite Musk’s promises to advertisers. The pullback comes amid growing concerns that misinformation and ‘objectionable’ content may be allowed to circulate on the platform under Musk’s leadership, and ads with such content may appear. Fearing a rise in ‘objectionable’ content under Musk, some big Indian brands are following suit.
