Following Elon Musk’s suggestion that Dr. Anthony Fauci be prosecuted, the site’s owner has caused yet another Twitter storm. The multibillionaire laughed in an unoriginal way to show that he didn’t agree with the doctor’s pandemic rules.
My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 11, 2022
The 51-year-old millionaire seemed to be mocking the usage of pronouns when he said in a tweet, “My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci.” As of Sunday afternoon, the post had received over 560,000 likes and over 90,000 retweets.
During the COVID-19 epidemic, Fauci promoted vaccinations and the use of masks, but his limits and health opinions have drawn criticism from conservatives and conspiracy theorists.
“Even though I have strong security, I genuinely believe it’s cowardly to harass individuals who are absolutely unrelated, especially my children.” My family is now being targeted by petty trolls.
I make an effort not to let online criticism stop me from doing my work. Fauci said.
The Twitter Files: What are they?
Now, that animosity could only become worse. Elon Musk, who just bought Twitter, made a tweet saying, “My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci,” a snide reference to the practice of using a preferred pronoun to indicate one’s gender.
Recently, Musk has been bragging about the notorious “Twitter Files,” which were released in spurts during December. Many stories have come out, and many of them say that the website’s previous management shut down right-wing user accounts.
Some of the alleged “revelations” are starting to gain momentum, even if they haven’t yet had the effect Musk and his allies had hoped for. Some believe Anthony Fauci may soon be implicated by the Twitter files as a result of his not-entirely cryptic tweet from this morning.
Elon Musk had previously tweeted that things on his page were “about to get hot.” In response to a query regarding a “COVID version” of the Twitter Files, he also said that a story about pandemic disinformation will be released shortly.
Musk’s ownership of the social networking site has been a wild ride, as was to be anticipated. Some, though, worry that the IT whiz’s message to Dr. Fauci went too far. Gregg Gonsalves, a Yale professor, has recently expressed his worry about these trends.
Musk finally decided to buy Twitter in October for $44 billion after months of attempting to back out of the agreement. His detractors immediately expressed alarm about the new management and vowed to stop using the social networking site due to problems with free speech.
Musk assured users that the site would not devolve into “a free-for-all hellscape” while under his charge.
Musk recently turned Kanye West’s Twitter account back on after it had been shut down in October for making anti-Semitic comments.
Following his restoration, the rapper posted a picture of a swastika covering the Jewish Star of David with the statement, “YE24 LOVE EVERYONE.” Shortly afterward, the tweet was deleted.
