The View’s Sunny Hostin weighed-in Tuesday on Elon Musk’s recent purchase of social media platform Twitter, saying he’s only interested in free speech rights for ‘straight white men.’
“On Twitter, it is predominately straight, white men. So when Elon Musk says, ‘wow, this is about free speech,’ seems to me that it’s about free speech of straight white men. So let them have it! I enjoy the block button!” said Hostin.
The fallout continued Tuesday less than 24 hours after news broke that Elon Musk will soon purchase Twitter for $44 billion, with some employees reportedly “too shocked to speak.”
“Totally understand that this is entertainment for some,” one Twitter employee tweeted. “But please understand that this is certainly not entertainment for me.”
“The news today is so crazy I literally forgot I have COVID,” another posted.
