Model Gigi Hadid deleted her Twitter account after billionaire Elon Musk’s acquisition of the social media giant.
She calls it a “cesspool of hate” that is no longer “a safe place for anyone.”
Although leftists like Gigi Hadid and NBA superstar LeBron James suggest an increase in “hate speech” following Musk’s takeover, Musk says Twitter hasn’t made any changes to its content moderation.

Musk also explains, “In fact, we have actually seen hateful speech at times this week decline *below* our prior norms, contrary to what you may read in the press.”
Again, to be crystal clear, Twitter’s strong commitment to content moderation remains absolutely unchanged.

Hadid said, “It’s becoming more and more of a cesspool of hate & bigotry, and its not a place I want to be a part of.”
Hadid also said she “only sorry to the fans” with whom she “loved connecting with for a decade.”

More on this story via Breitbart:
Hadid had over 10,536,819 followers before her departure from Twitter.
According to the Daily Mail, the data firm Bot Sentinel recently reported Twitter “may have lost over a million users since Musk bought the tech company for $44 billion, indicating that some users have been suspended by the company and others may have deactivated out of protest.”
Multiple left-wing celebrities, from Debra Messing to Mark Ruffalo to Tea Leoni to Shonda Rhimes to Alex Winter, have all pledged to leave Twitter in the wake of Elon Musk’s acquisition of the platform.
“Twitter has seen an exodus of Hollywood elites after Musk completed his $44 billion takeover of the social media platform last week,” Breitbart News reported. “Among the quitters are Shonda Rhimes, Tea Leoni, NBC’s This Is Us producer Ken Olin, Showtime’s Billions producer Brian Koppelman, and Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure star Alex Winter.”
