Elon Musk Says The ADL Tried to Pressure X To Ban Libs of TikTok

Sep 12, 2023 | Political News

X owner Elon Musk has signaled that the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has allegedly exerted a certain degree of pressure over the platform, pushing it to muzzle the Libs of TikTok account. The news cements concerns around the state of free speech on online platforms and amplifies calls for transparency.

The claim from Musk, who himself is no stranger to online controversy, shines a light on a disturbing caveat in the world where platforms are ubiquitous for proliferating ideas and unmasks the potent influence of certain organizations like the ADL to push narrative control.

Libs of TikTok, known for its bold and often polarizing content, reached out to the tech mogul in a bid to break the story wide open, requesting that Musk unveil any potential correspondence that might have transpired between X and the ADL revolving around orchestrated censorship.
