In response to Elon Musk taking over as Twitter’s new CEO, American supermodel Gigi Hadid deactivated her account. Hadid informed about her decision on Instagram in the midst of the company’s widespread layoffs.
The model took to Instagram and wrote, “For a long time, but especially with its new leadership, it’s becoming more and more of a cesspool of hate & bigotry, and its not a place I want to be a part of.”
Moreover, Hadid expressed regret to her followers for leaving the social media platform. She added, “Only sorry to the fans, who I have loved connecting with for a decade via Twitter, but I can’t say “I can’t stay it’s a safe place for anyone, nor a social platform that will do more good than harm.” She does not currently have a profile on the website.
Gigi Hadid Leaves Twitter After Elon Musk’s Takeover:
Gigi Hadid shared Shannon Raj Singh’s tweet about being fired from her job as a human rights attorney. Elon Musk took over last week and fired several workers. According to Page Six, this also applied to the human rights team.
Earlier, actor Amber Heard also reportedly deleted her Twitter account a few days after her ex-boyfriend Elon Musk’s controversial takeover. Heard is no longer on the microblogging platform. Heard previously used the handle “@realamberheard.” Prior to beginning a relationship with musician Grimes, the actor dated the businessman for about a year. Shonda Rhimes, the creator of Grey’s Anatomy, Ken Olin, Ron Perlman, Toni Branxton, Téa Leoni, and Sara Bareilles are just a few of the famous people who have left the microblogging site.
Elon Musk previously defended his intention to fire employees while discussing it and claimed that Twitter was losing more than $4 million every day. He wrote in a tweet, “Regarding Twitter’s reduction in force, unfortunately, there is no choice when the company is losing over USD 4M/day. Everyone exited was offered 3 months of severance, which is 50% more than legally required.” In addition, Twitter will launch a paid subscription service, whereby every verified user must pay $8 to receive their blue tick.
