“Coordinated efforts to censor and ban him from social media will only deepen his base,” JT Lewis told Elon Musk of Twitter’s Alex Jones ban

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA: Elon Musk, once branded a free speech absolutist, has now denied reactivating the Twitter account of Alex Jones, a right-wing conspiracy theorist and Sandy Hook shooting denier. This sparked a massive debate online, with some supporting Musk’s decision and others criticizing him. However, there was one surprising comment from someone who lost their little brother in the Sandy Hook shooting and that’s JT Lewis. He’s in favor of bringing Jones’ account back.

When asked to rehire Alex Jones, Musk immediately responded with a “no” and moved on. Jones made remarks about the school shooting that were later deemed defamatory as he called the shooting a fake. JT Lewis lost his brother Jesse Lewis, 6, a first grader in the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. However, he tweeted at Musk, convincing him to bring Jones back with the explanation that a ban would only provide more confirmation. Lewis wrote: “Elon, I lost my brother in Sandy Hook. My family has been harassed by scammers for a decade. But you should put back Alex Jones’ eyes backing up your crazy conspiracy theories!”

After his death, his mother, Scarlet Lewis, founded the Choose Love Movement, which teaches character development, social and emotional learning (SEL), teaching children how to manage their emotions, feel connected, and have a healthy relationship.
