In a controversial move that has sparked outrage among Flat-Earthers around the world, billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk has announced that he will be banning all followers on Twitter who believe the Earth is flat.
The move comes after months of heated debates on social media between Musk and Flat-Earthers, who have accused the SpaceX founder of spreading false information about space exploration and the shape of the Earth.
In a statement released on Twitter, Musk declared, “I’m sorry, but we simply cannot tolerate this level of ignorance on our platform. The Earth is round, and it’s time for people to accept this basic fact.”
The announcement has been met with anger and frustration among Flat-Earthers, who have accused Musk of trying to silence their opinions and ideas.
“Elon Musk is just afraid of the truth,” declared Flat-Earth activist Karen Johnson. “He knows that if people start to realize that the Earth is actually flat, it will undermine his entire space program and the billions of dollars he’s invested in it.”
But Musk remains undeterred, and has vowed to continue his crusade for scientific truth and knowledge.
“I’m not trying to stifle debate or dissenting opinions,” he explained. “But there are some things that are simply beyond debate, and the shape of the Earth is one of them.
It’s time for us to move forward and focus on real scientific progress, rather than these silly conspiracy theories.”
The ban on Flat-Earthers has already taken effect, and thousands of Twitter users have already been blocked from Musk’s account.
It remains to be seen whether this move will have any long-term impact on the ongoing debate over the shape of the Earth, but one thing is certain – the controversy surrounding Elon Musk and his views on science and technology is far from over.
