Elon Musk Cries Advertisers ‘Blackmail’

Speaking at the 2023 DealBook Summit in New York, Elon Musk, the owner of social media site X (formerly Twitter), lambasted advertisers for leaving the platform because of antisemitic posts he amplified on the outlet.

“If somebody’s going to try to blackmail me with advertising? Blackmail me with money? Go f—yourself. Go. F—. Yourself. Is that clear?” Musk singled out Disney CEO Bob Iger in the audience, saying “Hi Bob!”

He also implied that his fans would boycott those advertisers in kind.

“The whole world will know that those advertisers killed the company, and we will document it in great detail,” Musk threatened.
