The Hollywood Reporter reports that celebrities from all over Hollywood are threatening to leave Twitter if Donald Trump’s account is reactivated.
Rob Reiner, a filmmaker and activist, tweeted: “The moment is not right for people who are working to protect our constitutional democracy to stop using Twitter. The moment to vote blue is right now!”
On the other hand, amid Elon Musk’s takeover, many celebrities left Twitter.
Executive producer Ken Olin of This Is Us tweeted to his 300,000 followers, “I’m out of here.”
“The day @elonmusk takes possession of Twitter, I’m gone,” the producer had already pledged. “Nothing to judge. Let’s not lose hope. Let’s defend democracy. Try to be kinder, please. Try to protect the planet, please. Let’s make an effort to be more generous. Let’s try to bring about world peace.” He said he would instead try Tribal social.
Brian Koppelman, the showrunner on Billions, tweeted, “You can find me on Instagram and the Tok, for real. Come the time for the deal to close, I’ll attempt to take a break from this for a few minutes or a month.”
“I can see the logic in taking a long Twitter break when EM takes it over,” the Rounders writer had previously tweeted.
Alex Winter, who was featured in Bill & Ted, also left the platform. He left a Linktree URL and removed his tweet history. Sharing a meme portraying Musk’s takeover of Twitter’s new leader alongside Kanye West and former President Donald Trump as the Three Musketeers at the same time.
