Elon Musk Pledges to Fund Lawsuits for People Fired over Tweets

Aug 9, 2023 | Political News

Elon Musk, owner of X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, has made a broad promise: that his company will fund the lawsuits of anyone who faces unfair treatment at work due to their activity on his platform.

Over the past ten years, it has become a common fear: that your activity on social media — a post, retweet, or even just a “like” can become weaponized by a mob, the media, or professional activists to torpedo your career.

Now, Elon Musk is promising to fight back.

“If you were unfairly treated by your employer due to posting or liking something on this platform, we will fund your legal bill,” said Musk in a post on X over the weekend. “No limit. Please let us know.”
