In a shocking turn of events, it has been reported that Whoopi Goldberg is suing Elon Musk for defamation on Twitter. The lawsuit, filed yesterday in a California court, alleges that Musk’s tweets have caused irreparable harm to Goldberg’s reputation and emotional well-being.
According to Goldberg’s lawyers, Musk’s tweets have been consistently insulting and degrading toward the beloved actress.
In one tweet, Musk reportedly referred to Goldberg as a “washed-up has-been who hasn’t been relevant since the 90s.” In another, he allegedly called her “a talentless hack who owes her entire career to affirmative action.”
Goldberg, who has won an Oscar, a Grammy, an Emmy, and a Tony award, has been a fixture in Hollywood for decades. She is beloved by fans around the world for her iconic performances in movies like “The Color Purple” and “Ghost,” as well as her role as a co-host on the popular talk show “The View.”
Musk, on the other hand, is the billionaire founder of Tesla and SpaceX, and is known for his controversial statements on social media.
He has previously been sued for defamation by other high-profile individuals, including the British cave diver Vernon Unsworth, whom he called a “pedo guy” on Twitter.
While some have criticized Goldberg’s lawsuit as frivolous and a waste of time, others have expressed sympathy for the actress and praised her for standing up to Musk’s bullying behavior. Many on social media have even started a hashtag campaign in support of Goldberg, using the hashtag #WeStandWithWhoopi.
Musk, for his part, has yet to comment publicly on the lawsuit. His Twitter account, however, has continued to be active, with the billionaire tweeting about everything from cryptocurrency to his plans for space exploration.
Only time will tell how this legal battle will play out, but one thing is for sure: Twitter drama is never dull, especially when it involves two larger-than-life personalities like Whoopi Goldberg and Elon Musk.
