Musk teased that there would be more releases of Twitter files focusing on the company’s content moderation efforts.
Last year, Rittenhouse, who was accused of murder in self-defense in the shootings during the 2020 Wisconsin riots, was found not guilty of all charges in a trial that was heavily covered in the mainstream media. It is called “white supremacist” and many outlets repeated the lie that he smuggled the gun he used in the killing across state lines.
NICHOLAS SANDMANN ASKED MUSK to release ‘secret’ Twitter files on authorized death threats against him.
Former Covington High School student Nicholas Sandmann, who was similarly targeted by the media in 2019, also took the opportunity to demand transparency regarding death threats made against him and his school as a teenager on Twitter. He shared several screenshots of the threats, including one of “MAGA kids” stuffed into a “wood chipper.”
“As I watch this all unfold, I wonder if @elonmusk has any secret twitter files related to what happened here,” Sandmann said on Twitter on Sunday. “Let’s be clear: @Vijaya is under control [Gadde] When I was 16 years old, these illegal threats were made.”
Sandmann was at the center of controversy after she was photographed wearing a Make America Great Again hat and smiling as she faced Native American activist Nathan Phillips during the March for Life in Washington. About white teenagers stalking an elderly Native American, but the full video of the incident shows Sandmann and his fellow students keeping calm after initially confronting Phillips.
Sandmann eventually sued several media outlets for defamation for their original portrayal of the incident, several of which resulted in settlements.
