Sara Bareilles, a musician who has won a Grammy, has lost her mind and said she is leaving Twitter because Elon Musk is taking over. Sarah’s song “Brave” is a big hit. In it, she sings:
“Say what you want to say, and let the words fall out,” I really want to see you be brave, say what you want to say, and let the words come out.
But she isn’t brave when genius Elon Musk is trying to protect free speech in America, which is important because if we lose that, we lose everything. Sarah said:
“Welp. Twitter is a lot of fun. I’m out. People, I’ll see you on other sites. Sorry, but I’m not interested in this one.”
She hasn’t posted since she “quit,” but her account, which has 2.8 million followers, is still up and running.
She isn’t the only well-known person who is upset about Musk.
Ken Olin, a producer, told his 300,000 fans, “I’m out of here. I’m leaving Twitter the day Elon Musk buys it. No judgement. Let’s not lose hope. Let’s protect our democracy.
“Let’s try to be kinder. Let’s do what we can to save the earth. Let’s try to be kinder and more helpful. Let’s try to make the world a better place,” he said, before telling them to follow him somewhere else.
Billions showrunner Brian Koppelman said:
“Y’all, seriously, find me on Instagram and the tok.
“I’m going to try to get away from here for a minute or a month when the deal is almost done.”
He had said before, “I can see why you might want to take a long break from Twitter when EM takes over.”
Alex Winter, who was in the movie Bill & Ted, seems to have stopped using the social media site. Before he deleted his account, he got rid of all of his posts and told his followers where they could find him.
He also put up a meme that showed Musk, former President Donald Trump, and Kanye West as the Three Musketeers.
The British actress Jameela Jamil, best known for her roles in “The Good Place” and “She-Hulk,” deleted her account and said, “Oh, he got Twitter. I would like this to be the last thing I tweet.”
But she did come back.
Mia Farrow told us:
“Well, if Twitter gets even worse, with more Trumpy-treasonous lies and more hatred, it will be taken less seriously, and people like me will quit for peace of mind.”
But Rob Reiner changed his mind and decided to stay and fight.
He said, “Now is not the time to leave Twitter if you are fighting to keep our Constitutional Democracy alive. It’s time to VOTE BLUE!”
