These celebrities aren’t happy about it.Everyone who has left the app since the new boss took over can be found here.
After tweeting that he was “out of here” on October 28, “Thirtysomething” actor and “This Is Us” producer Ken Olin was one of the first to leave the social media platform.”Let’s protect our democracy” was Olin’s message of optimism as he signed off.Let’s try to be more gentle.Let’s work together to save the planet.Try to be more generous, please.Let’s look for peace all over the world.

Alex Winter Winter, an actor who is most well-known for his role in “Bill & Ted,” locked his account, which has since been deactivated.”The platform has immediately become more prone to hate speech, targeted attacks, and the spread of disinformation since Elon Musk took over Twitter and made it a private company with less oversight,” Winter told NBC News, adding that many users would return if the company went public again.
In a Facebook post on Oct. 28, Mick Foley, a retired wrestler and actor, said that he would not be on the platform anymore.He wrote, “I decided I needed a break from @twitter, since the new ownership – and the misinformation and hate it seems to be encouraging – has my stomach in a knot,” noting that he would probably return to the app in a few weeks.
