Twitter censorship lawyer
cried during a team meet over Elon Musk takeover
Stung by tech tycoon Elon Musk’ takeover of Twitter, the social media giant’s top lawyer Vijaya Gadde reportedly had an emotional moment during a meeting with the legal and policy teams she oversees.
As the news of her sobbing at the meeting was confirmed, Gadde’s new boss Musk targeted the lawyer
over censoring exclusive stories related to US President Joe Biden’s son Hunter’s laptop.
“Suspending the Twitter account of a major news organization for publishing a truthful story was obviously incredibly inappropriate,”
Musk wrote slamming the Indian-origin lawyer’s key move in the run up to the 2020 US presidential elections where
she suspended the account of New York Post over an exclusive article about Hunter Biden’s laptop that has since
been verified by many outlets which had initially dismissed the report as misinformation.
Musk, 50, was replying to podcast host Saagar Enjeti who shared a Politico report about Gadde’s reported tearful virtual meeting with her teams after the Tesla CEO, a self-proclaimed
“free speech absolutist”, took over the company’s reins after a $44 billion deal.
