Speaking at the 2023 DealBook Summit in New York on Wednesday, Elon Musk, the owner of social media site X (formerly Twitter), scoffed at advertisers leaving the platform because of antisemitic posts he amplified there.
“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.
He also told interviewer Andrew Ross Sorkin, “I have no problem being hated. Hate away.”

Disney subscriptions are getting destroyed by Users backing Musk.
Disney is to entertainment what the legacy media is to journalism. They are both Leftist activists first.
He’s been growing on me by the week.
Elon Musk is crazy smart, and crazy, smart. He enjoys being able to be dismissive of the Village Idiots who think they are important and intelligent..
And his way of dealing with them is wickedly delicious. 😎
Musk gets it. He is red pilled. He’s on Trump’s side though it’s not public yet or maybe he doesn’t even realize it yet.

Bud Lighting everyone
good that disney is being canceled
but i have to ask
unless you are a woke leftist
why havent they already
Even though Twitter/X has grown its REAL users, has eliminated (mostly) the fake accounts and bots that ran rampant when Twitter was a deep-state propaganda organization - suddenly NOW, large corporations all agreed that they will stop advertising on Twitter/X
DC Woke Government and Crony capitalist fascism, at its finest!
Musk blames all of these people for turning his kid into a tranny and now wants revenge lol.
It is very difficult to cancel the world’s richest man.
It is also very difficult to cancel or blackmail a billionaire.
Mr. Musk and president Trump are in the Left’s bullseye.
Too bad Musk is ineligible for the presidency.
Well Musk is one of the few people in the world that has “go F yourself” money, he likely could self-fund Twitter on what he earns from his other companies if he wanted to do so.
Woke companies are trying to strong-arm Musk and he reacts not by giving in to their threats but by fighting back.
BTW, Bob Iger is in a very weak position already. He doesn't need the publicity about a possible boycott of his already poorly performing Disney.
Side note: Musk has clarified the issue about him permitting and even appearing to support anti-Semitic comments on X (formerly known as Twitter). Musk is in no way anti-Semitic.
The problem for those boycotting Musk is that those companies, being Woke, are truly anti-Semitic and Musk knows it. Woke companies are pro-Palestinian and Musk knows it.
These Woke companies are picking a fight with the one guy in the universe that will expose their anti-Israel anti-Semitic positions.
Nice when it all gels together......Musk is a genius.
Elon gets the most out of his F Y $$. love him.
Generally agree, I believe Musk is a generally a Builder and Creator first, and a Technical Genius in certain areas. The Builder Creator aligns with President Trump’s general inclinations.
