Twitter CEO Elon Musk slammed Bari Weiss on Friday afternoon after she called out his decision to suspend several journalists that had shared information about the location of his private jet.
The suspensions came after Musk announced a new policy change Wednesday after an incident happened involving his child.
Accounts that were suspended included left-wing propagandist and former Vox journalist Aaron Rupar, CNN reporter Donie O’Sullivan, New York Times reporter Ryan Mac, Washington Post reporter Drew Harwell, The Intercept journalist Micah Lee, and hardcore leftist Keith Olbermann.
“Any account doxxing real-time location info of anyone will be suspended, as it is a physical safety violation,” Musk said. “This includes posting links to sites with real-time location info. Posting locations someone traveled to on a slightly delayed basis isn’t a safety problem, so is ok.”
“Last night, car carrying lil X in LA was followed by crazy stalker (thinking it was me), who later blocked car from moving & climbed onto hood,” Musk continued. “Legal action is being taken against Sweeney & organizations who supported harm to my family.”
Weiss responded to the suspensions by tweeting, “The old regime at Twitter governed by its own whims and biases and it sure looks like the new regime has the same problem.”
“I oppose it in both cases. And I think those journalists who were reporting on a story of public importance should be reinstated,” she continued. “I don’t need to dwell on how mesmerizing it is to watch those journalists who defended — even celebrated! — Twitter’s bans under the old regime under the guise of ‘safety’ now call it censorship, and say it infringes on freedom of expression,” she continued. “It did then as it does now.”
Musk responded to Weiss, “What should the consequence of doxxing someone’s real-time, exact location be?”
“Assume your child is at that location, as mine was,” Musk continued. “Bari, this is a real question, not rhetorical. What is your opinion?”
Musk then dropped the hammer a short time later, writing: “Rather than rigorously pursuing truth, you are virtue-signaling to show that you are ‘good’ in the eyes of media elite to keep one foot in both worlds.”
