Linda Yaccarino Openly Backs Musk & X's Free Speech Stand

Amidst the departure of advertisers due to antisemitic content, Elon Musk and his social media platform X (formerly Twitter) persist in their efforts to defend free speech on the platform.

Linda Yaccarino Supports Elon Musk

In light of Elon Musk’s direct remark to departing advertisers on X, “Go F*** Yourself,” CEO Linda Yaccarino defended Musk and the platform’s free speech policy.

Elon Musk provided advertisers with an explanation, an apology, and a clear position regarding their stance on antisemitic content.

However, Musk has previously stated that he opposes antisemitism but maintains his stance on the platform regarding free speech.

“X is enabling an information independence that’s uncomfortable for some people. We’re a platform that allows people to make their own decisions,” said Linda Yaccarino.

Regarding “Free Speech and Main Street,” she considers X to be situated at an intersection.

Strong members of the X community support the platform.

She expressed appreciation to advertisers and stakeholders who support X’s meaningful work.

Elon Musk slams advertisers who are trying to blackmail him for money; he pointed out Disney CEO Bob Iger during his interview on The New York Times’ DealBook Summit.

Crypto Community Supports Musk

Dogecoin supporters are vocal in their endorsement of Elon Musk’s DOGE meme coin.

Dogecoin founder Shibetoshi Nakamoto said, “ADL helped perpetuate this moronic “oppressor vs oppressed” cult ideology that has brain-rotted so many otherwise potentially intelligent people and turned them into psychopaths, and now are having to face the consequences of it.”

John Deaton, a pro-XRP lawyer, responded to Elon Musk’s remarks by describing it as an “Incredible interview,” thereby attracting the interest of the XRP community.
