Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails has been called a “crybaby” by Elon Musk after he left Twitter. Reznor said over the weekend that he was “ready to leave” the platform and that Musk’s acquisition was “embarrassing”.
He said, “We don’t need the conceit of the billionaire class to think they can simply go in and fix everything. “I simply feel that it has turned into such a poisonous atmosphere, even without him engaged. I need to unwind for the sake of my mental health. I no longer feel comfortable being there.
The lead singer of Nine Inch Nails has subsequently followed through on his pledge and quit the social networking site, whereas Kanye West and Donald Trump have both come back to Twitter after their accounts were previously suspended due to a slew of antisemitic tweets.
Musk replied to a tweet that read, “And it turns out that ‘nine-inch nails’ Trent Reznor is really a crybaby,” which was sent 48 hours after Musk reactivated Trump’s Twitter account and the world still hadn’t ended.
One person reacted negatively to his statement, writing, “You are an ignorant moron. One of the greatest artists of all time is Trent Reznor.
I appreciate his music, to be honest, but maybe Etsy is more his thing, Musk said.
He assumed formal control of Twitter in October, and since then, he has been under heavy fire for his dubious conduct there. Numerous celebrities, including Jack White, who also left the forum over the weekend, Kathy Burke, Stephen Fry, Julian Casablancas of The Strokes, comedy group SpitLip, and Stephen Fry are among those who have criticized him.
Twitter itself is said to be about to go under because Musk has fired hundreds of workers recently and because advertisers have started leaving the site in large numbers. Hate speech on Twitter apparently skyrocketed within days of Musk’s takeover as well; for example, within a single day, usage of the N-word rose by over 500%.
Additionally, Musk apparently threatened to fire any remaining Twitter employees last week, telling them to “work hard hours at great intensity” or quit the business. Shortly after, rumors of the site’s demise spread.
