Jack White Slams Elon Musk Over Donald Trump’s Reinstatement On Twitter

Jack White has pulled his record label, Third Man Records, from Twitter after Elon Musk allowed former president Donald Trump to return to the social media platform.

“Shame on you for giving trump and other professional liars the platform you are now in control of, and shame on anyone who does,” White wrote on his Instagram page. “And shame on you if you think it’s no big deal. It is.”

In a lengthy post, the rocker said the action was “absolutely disgusting.” “That is officially an a**hole move,” he wrote.

“Trump was removed from Twitter because he incited violence multiple times, people died and were injured as a result of his lies and his ego – let alone what his coup did to attempt to destroy democracy and our Capitol,” White said, referring to the January 6 Capitol riot, allegedly instigated by Trump.

White concluded his rigorous attack on Musk by saying, “You took on a big responsibility with your purchase, and ‘free speech’ isn’t some umbrella that protects you from that.”

During their friendship days, White had praised Musk, calling him the “Henry Ford of the 21st century.”

White is the latest artist to leave Twitter in protest against Musk’s policy decisions.
