Musk to sue the Jewish Anti-Defamation League ?

Unknown comments -

Elon Musk is now planning to sue the Jewish Anti-Defamation League for defamation and harm to his Twitter X business, speaking of a compensation figure between $4 billion and $22 billion.

Musk is also speaking of a 'giant data dump' where the ADL's communications requesting censorship of various people, are publicly disclosed for all to see.

The ADL has previously paid out millions for unfairly defaming people.

Jewish News of Northern California:

'Judge fines ADL $10.5 million in Colorado defamation suit'



"Elon Musk, owner of the platform X, formerly known as Twitter, has threatened to ban the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) from his platform, adding that he had “no choice” but to file a defamation lawsuit against the advocacy group, which previously called for a pause on ad spending on the social network.

Musk tweeted:

"To clear our platform’s name on the matter of anti-Semitism, it looks like we have no choice but to file a defamation lawsuit against the Anti-Defamation League … oh the irony!"

News of the potential lawsuit comes after news broke that -

X is still down around 60% in US ad revenue as the ADL continues to put pressure on its advertisers to avoid the social media platform.


"In our case, they would potentially be on the hook for destroying half the value of the company, so roughly $22 billion ... I don't see any scenario where they’re responsible for less than 10pc of the value destruction, so [around] $4bn [at least]”

Musk also suggested that X will expose - Twitter-Files-esque - the ADL’s requests to ban and censor X accounts it deems anti-Semitic next week, prompting a hashtag for #TheADLFiles... "A giant data dump would clear the air."
