NBA star LeBron James referred to as on new Twitter proprietor Elon Musk Saturday to take motion to handle a disturbing explosion on the social media platform of the usage of the “N Word.”
“I hope he [Musk] and his people take this very seriously because this is scary AF. So many damn unfit people saying hate speech is free speech,” James tweeted.
Musk has railed up to now at Twitter’s content material restrictions on misinformation and hate speech, characterizing it as biased and unjustified censorship. But unfettered content material could possibly be dangerous for his new enterprise and even in some instances weak to lawsuits.
Musk tried to reassure advertisers in a message final week that Twitter won’t turn out to be a “free-for-all hellscape.” But customers are apparently already difficult that promise.
Musk on Friday tweeted that he wouldn’t make any “major content decisions or account reinstatements” till a brand new content material “moderation council” is convened.
He didn’t instantly reply to James’ tweet.
