By now, everyone knows Elon Musk finalized his purchase of Twitter which caused quite a bit of commotion in the last couple of months because of the sensitivity of the entire issue. The concerns were mostly related to the major changes Musk wants to implement on Twitter that would enable more free speech and bring back some previously banned people on the platform.
LeBron calls out Elon Musk
Many famous and regular people are concerned because of Musk taking over Twitter, and one of them is none other than LeBron James. In one of his recent tweets, he called out Elon because of recent news on The Washington Post stating how the use of the N-word has increased by over 500% since he took over Twitter. LeBron said he doesn't care who owns Twitter and never personally met Elon Musk but believes this issue needs to be looked into with the utmost urgency.
LeBron is known as someone who often comments and shares his opinion on social and racial issues in the US. This is a topic that obviously he deeply cares about, and even though he has no real influence here except stating his opinion on the matter. It's up to the Twitter employees and Elon Musk himself to figure out how they can best handle this sudden surge of inappropriate words that are now being said on the platform. Everybody is up for having the freedom of speech and not being afraid to get canceled, but this is a different type of problem that needs to be terminated from social media platforms forever.
