    After taking on ADL, Elon Musk is going after California content moderation laws. The state plans to implement a law that would see new transparency needs for social media companies, including how they traffic police disinformation, hate speech, and extremism. Known as Bill 587, it violates its free speech rights under the US Constitution’s First Amendment and California’s state constitution.

    This lawsuit comes when Elon Musk gets a lot of flak from the Anti-Defamation League.

In turn, the former CEO of X has blamed the league for bringing X’s ad revenue down by 60%.
