After Elon Musk Takeover, Gigi Hadid Quits Twitter, Demands For “New Leadership”

Gigi Hadid

Gigi Hadid announced her departure from Twitter on Instagram, after nearly a decade of communicating with her admirers on the popular network.

Gigi Hadid is speaking out against Twitter’s “new leadership” and has lately announced her departure from the platform. The model took to Instagram and uploaded a post in her stories explaining why she had canceled her Twitter account.

Hadid also tweeted a screenshot indicating that Twitter’s Human Rights team had been fired off. Taking to her stories, Gigi did not spare her words when speaking out against layoffs and other actions made by the new leadership when Elon Musk took over.

Tesla’s founder took over the microblogging platform last week, and some celebrities have spoken out against him and abandoned Twitter since then. Producers such as Shonda Rhimes were among the first to declare their departure from the site.

Twitter, according to Gigi, is a “cesspool” of hatred.

The 27-year-old supermodel stated on Instagram on Friday that she had canceled her Twitter account due to the mass layoffs.

She wrote,

“For a long time, but especially under its new leadership, it’s become more and more of a cesspool of hate & prejudice, and its [sic] not a place I want to be a part [sic] of,”.

“I can’t stay it’s a secure place for anyone, nor a social network that will bring more good than damage,” Hadid said, apologizing to her admirers with whom she has been linked on Twitter for over a decade.

Toni Braxton’s Twitter departure

Several other celebrities, including legendary singer Toni Braxton, left the platform before Hadid. “I’m astonished and dismayed by some of the ‘free speech I’ve seen on this platform since its acquisition,” she wrote in announcing her departure.

Hate speech disguised as ‘free expression’ is intolerable; so, I am opting to stay off Twitter since it is no longer a safe platform for myself, my sons, and other people of color.”

Shonda Rhimes, the producer of Bridgerton, also tweeted, “I’m not staying around for whatever Elon has planned.”

Other significant names who have spoken out against Twitter’s new leadership include George Takei, Josh Gad, and Rob Reiner, among others.

Meanwhile, after taking over the platform, Musk was said to have eased the limits placed on Kanye West’s account following his anti-Semitic posts, though the SpaceX founder denied any participation.
