Gigi Hadid has announced her departure from Twitter.
Gigi Hadid said on her Instagram on November 6th (local time), “I deactivated my Twitter account today. Especially with its new leadership, it’s becoming more and more of a cesspool of hate and bigotry, and it’s not a place I want to be a part of.”
Earlier, Elon Musk changed management immediately after taking over Twitter, causing controversy by firing more than half of his employees.
Twitter employees filed a class-action lawsuit in federal court in San Francisco, claiming that the layoff without notice was a violation of U.S. federal and California law.
This isn’t the first time celebrities have announced they have left Twitter.
Singer Toni Braxton pointed out that when Elon Musk took over Twitter on October 29th, hate speech was rampant on Twitter.
“I’ve decided to stay away from Twitter because it’s no longer a safe place for me, my son and other people of color,” Toni Braxton said, deactivating the account the day after Elon Musk took over.
Singer-songwriter and Grammy Award-winner Sarah Bareilles, and Erik Larson, who drew the animation “The Amazing Spider-Man”, also announced they were no longer active on Twitter.
Celebrities such as wrestling legend Mick Foley, famous American TV writer Shonda Rhimes, and actor Alex Winter are leaving Twitter one after another.
