It’s no secret Elon Musk‘s latest 44 billion dollars purchase of Twitter has been controversial. Likewise, it’s no surprise that rockers have continuously shared critical views on the situation, with a growing number pledging to leave the platform altogether.
As reported by The Hollywood Reporter last Friday (Nov. 18), Nine inch seam mastermind Trent Reznor definitely planning to “leave” Twitter. He explained: “We don’t need the arrogance of the billionaire class to feel like they can just come in and fix everything. Even without [Musk] involved, I just think it’s become such a toxic environment. For my mental health, I need to tune out. I don’t feel good about being there anymore.”
Corresponding Blink 182‘s Tom DeLonge has been secondment about the situation for a while on Twitter. Yesterday (Nov. 19), he retweeted Musk’s Nov. 19 tweet about reinstatement earlier President Trump and commented: “Under 8 different grand juries for treason, crimes against humanity, money laundering, espionage, rape and RICO. Wtf is @elonmusk doing? Why would he stand by something like that?”
Ten minutes later, DeLonge added The said decision may also cause him to leave the platform: “Elon is a trailblazer who holds massive insecurities. His desire to be funny and cool is loud. He seems most touched, literally, that people just like him ?Now that seems like a disease to me?But supporting this racist, traitorous fuck [Trump] Makes me want to throw up and quit Twitter.”
Earlier this month The battles‘ Julian Casablancas stated the following in a Instagram posts are now deleted: “PS dear Robert Baron asshole who makes ugly ass cars and thinks billionaires show don’t pay no taxes… (elon musk) . . . Maybe twitter could handle it if you don’t (as a typical CEO asshole bottom line hungry supervillain) fired half your staff. What a great symbol of 2020s shit.”
The Nov. 18, respectivelySkid Row frontman Sebastian Bach satirized Musk’s post about new policies, concluding: “Your identity is worth $8. Reality TV stars should run the country, not elected politicians. Got it.”
Back in April 2022, Kiss‘ Paul Stanley voted his proposal for what Musk could have done instead with the $44 billion. Around the same time, several other rockers responded to Musk’s then-proposed purchase of Twitter.
It is clear that Musk has done plenty to ruffle feathers in the past month, such as fire thousands of employees (including those who have criticized him online), promises to charge users for “verified” statuses and as previously mentioned, recovery earlier President Trumplast night (Nov. 19).
Therefore, it makes sense that so many musicians are openly upset, if not exactly jumping ship.
