Elon Musk is moving forward with his plan to save free speech and thus the American experiment but many Hollywood celebrities are not happy and are leaving or threatening to leave the platform. A few have deleted their accounts while others have stopped posting but kept their accounts active.
Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes said: “Not hanging around for whatever Elon has planned. Bye.”
Singer Toni Braxton said: “I’m shocked and appalled at some of the “free speech” I’ve seen on this platform since its acquisition. Hate speech under the veil of “free speech” is unacceptable; therefore I am choosing to stay off Twitter as it is no longer a safe space for myself, my sons and other POC.”
Mick Foley, a retired professional wrestler and actor, said: “I really do enjoy connecting with all of you on social media, but it can get overwhelming sometimes. I think I’ll be back on in a few weeks, but in the meantime, I will continue to post on Facebook and Instagram.
“I hope all of you will be kind to one another. Please vote if you can too — our democracy seems to be hanging on by a thread.
Erik Larsen, a comic book creator and artist best known for “The Amazing Spider-Man,” said earlier, “the day Elon Musk buys Twitter is the day I delete my account and leave Twitter.”
Amber Heard deleted her Twitter account after Musk took over.
Kathy Griffin said:
“I’ll stay until the midterms. In the meantime, I’m signing up for all other sites until we can settle on one. Look, I like you guys and all, but not $20.00 a month like. Inflation! I am enjoying tick-tock. I will look into blue sky and I think there’s two other ones people are talking about.

“Welp. It’s been fun Twitter. I’m out. See you on other platforms, peeps. Sorry, this one’s just not for me.”
Producer Ken Olin said, “I’m out of here. The day Elon Musk takes ownership of Twitter, I’m out. No judgement. Let’s keep the faith. Let’s protect our democracy.
“Let’s try to be kinder. Let’s try to save the planet. Let’s try to be more generous. Let’s look to find peace in the world” before telling his fans to follow him on another platform.
Billions showrunner Brian Koppelman said:
“Y’all’s, for real, come find me over on Instagram and the tok.
“Gonna really try to take a breather from here for a minute or a month come deal close time.”
He said earlier, “I can see the logic in taking a long Twitter hiatus when EM takes it over.”
Bill & Ted star Alex Winter seems to have quit the social media platform. He deleted all his posts and told his followers where they can find him before deleting his account.
