The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is calling for companies to “immediately pause all advertising” on Twitter in response to former President Donald Trump being reinstated.
Musk polled users and had over 15,000,000 votes before deciding to reinstate Trump.
A 51.8 percent majority of users voted to reinstate the former president’s account.
“The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated,” Musk tweeted. “Vox Populi, Vox Dei,” which translates to “the voice of the people is the voice of God.”
Trump’s account was active shortly after his tweet.
NAACP president Derrick Johnson had a total meltdown over the news — accusing Musk of “failing our democracy.”
“You are failing our democracy. Your garbage poll means nothing,” Johnson tweeted. “Did people outside the US vote? Did you reach out to marginalized communities—the targets of Trump’s rhetoric—for their input? Your followers don’t represent America. If you run Twitter like this, God help us all.”
In a subsequent tweet, Johnson wrote, “Any advertiser still funding Twitter should immediately pause all advertising now.”
Trump has not yet tweeted from his newly restored account and has previously said he plans to remain on his platform Truth Social.
Musk had not responded to Johnson’s tantrum at the time of publishing.
