Gigi Hadid Deletes Her Twitter Account Amid Elon Musk’s Takeover

Gigi Hadid revealed that she is only sorry to the fans she has loved connecting with for a decade on Twitter.

Gigi Hadid is the latest celebrity to leave Twitter after Tesla CEO Elon Musk completed his $44 billion deal to buy Twitter last week. The supermodel recently informed her Instagram followers that she ‘deactivated’ her Twitter account due to ‘its new leadership.’ While resharing Aymanm post, the model penned in her Instagram stories, “It’s becoming more and more of a cesspool of hate & bigotry, and its not a place I want to be a part of.”

Gigi continues that she is ‘only sorry to the fans’ that she has ‘loved connecting with for a decade’ on the platform. Ultimately, she explained that she feels Twitter is no longer ‘a safe place for anyone, nor a platform that will do more good than harm.’ Additionally, she shared a screenshot of a viral tweet, penned by Shannon Raj Singh, which informed her followers that ‘the entire Human Rights team has been cut from the company.’

Despite being terminated, she said she was ‘enormously proud of the work we did to implement the UN Guiding Principles on Business & Human Rights, to protect those at-risk in global conflicts & crises including Ethiopia, Afghanistan, and Ukraine, and to defend the needs of those, particularly at risk of human rights abuse by virtue of their social media presence, such as journalists & human rights defenders..’

Hadid’s decision comes after Bot Sentinel, a data firm, found that Twitter may have lost over a million users since Musk bought the tech company for $44 billion, indicating that some users have been suspended by the company and others may have deactivated out of protest. Before her departure from the microblogging site, the Vogue cover girl had over 10,536,819 followers.

TV screenwriter Shonda Rhimes, actor Mia Farrow, as well as Madam Secretary star Téa Leoni, She-Hulk actor Jameela Jamil, as well as authors and activists Shaun King and Amy Siskind, have all threatened to boycott the platform. In the other news, Gigi Hadid is reportedly in a relationship with Hollywood hearthrobe Leonardo DiCaprio. Though the actor is better known to broke up with his girlfriend as soon she turns 25, Dicaprio is enjoying his time with the model. Leonardo DiCaprio and Gigi Hadid have spotted together at several places in recent times.
