Elon Musk, the billionaire entrepreneur, has threatened to sue the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) for allegedly causing a decline in advertising revenue on the social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter.
Musk accuses the ADL of falsely labeling him and the platform as anti-Semitic, which he claims has led to a 60% drop in U.S. advertising revenue.
This comes after the ADL published a report highlighting a surge in hate speech on X following Musk’s takeover and the reinstatement of previously banned accounts.
Meanwhile, X is also suing the Center for Countering Digital Hate for making “false” claims about the platform.
The ADL has not commented on the legal threats but remains committed to fighting “hate speech.”
