Gigi Hadid wrote, “I can’t say it’s a safe place for anyone or any social platform that does more good than harm.”

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Several improvements have been made to Twitter since Elon Musk took control of the social media platform. And Gigi Hadid doesn’t seem too happy about it. On Friday, November 4th, she announced that she was leaving Twitter. In response to the massive layoffs, which also afflicted the human rights team, the 27-year-old supermodel took to Instagram to say she had deactivated her Twitter account, calling it a “cesspool of hate and bigotry,” Page Six reported.

Hadid wrote on her now-deleted Instagram stories, “For a long time, but especially with his new leadership, it’s becoming more and more of a cesspool of hatred and bigotry, and it’s not a place I want to be a part of.” Hadid continued as she expressed her regrets to her Twitter followers, who she was happy to interact with. She wrote, “I can’t say it’s a safe place for anyone or any social platform, which does more good than harm,” reported Page Six.

Hadid included human rights adviser Shannon Raj Singh’s tweet about the dismissal from the social media company in her statement. On Friday, November 4, Twitter laid off about half of its employees, saying in an email to employees that the layoffs were “necessary to ensure the company’s continued success.”

Many Twitter users have offered their opinion on Hadid’s decision to delete her account, with one saying, “I guess she hasn’t used Twitter much in the last 8 years.” Another wrote, “A less pretentious person on Twitter . Almost everything celebs post is disingenuous and designed to protect their brand. In private, they mostly despise us.” This other person, delighted to be a part of the new changes, wrote: “No, I’m good, I’m staying. I would rather be a part of what is changing than be a sheep following the flock.”

A fourth user pointed out that there are far worse issues than Musk’s suggestion, writing, “People are acting like making fun of disabilities has gotten worse with Elon and none of that has ever been removed since it was reported.” Nothing has changed.” Many other celebrities made the decision to stop using Twitter when American B&B singer Toni Braxton announced she would be skipping the social networking site as well. She wrote last month, “I am shocked and appalled by some of the ‘free speech’ I have seen on this platform since it was taken over hate speech under the veil of ‘free speech’ is unacceptable left twitter as it is no longer a safe place for me, my sons and others POC is.”

Shonda Rhimes, Sara Bareilles and Téa Leoni also reportedly said goodbye to Twitter in October. On the other hand, Musk caused controversy just last week when he announced he would charge a monthly fee for the once-coveted blue verification tick.
