Elon Musk is not going to live this one down. Despite his Twitter staff’s warnings, Musk advertised the documentary ‘What Is A Woman?’ The documentary did start a conversation, but not in the ways Musk wanted. Among other things, Musk has been accused of flaming the hated against the trans community.
The world’s richest man’s stance seems to have confused people. Twitter, often called the final frontier of democratic speech, is going into business with providers of vicious misinformation. After endorsing the documentary, Musk took his gloves off and called for the criminalization of doctors and parents transitioning their children. A lot of people were mad.
Elon Musk Accused Of Promoting Anti-Trans Propaganda Through Twitter
Elon Musk took to his Twitter account to promote the documentary ‘What Is A Woman?’ The documentary from Daily Wire host Matt Walsh has come under fire for his harmful views against the LGBTQIA + communities. Ironically, the platform meant to preserve democracy has given voice to hate speech.
Elon Musk lent the documentary his support with the tweet, “Every parent l should watch it.” The tech billionaire doubled down in another tweet by calling for imprisoning therapists and doctors helping trans children under the age of 18. Musk’s tweet read, “Consenting adults should do whatever makes them happy, provided it does not harm others, but a child is not capable of consent, which is why we have laws protecting minors.”

@lauferlaw was confused by Musk’s inconsistency and tweeted, “Twitter labeled this hate speech and you offered, I suppose, a compromise to not have it posted in the for you timeline. Now, you buckled and are out and out promoting it. Strange.”

@CWBOCA congratulated Musk for bringing the documentary to people. He also had more suggestions in his tweet, “Elon, you should fire whoever was behind the decision to initially censor this film. They dont share your vision and will undermine you again.”
