Twitter/X owner Elon Musk has commented on the coordinated political attempt to unperson Russel Brand, describing it as a “witch burning” and questioning “why now?”
Musk made the comments during a conversation on X Spaces Thursday, when asked about Brand being demonetized on YouTube owing to allegations of sexual assault dating back a decade.
“There needs to be, obviously, a conviction here. It can’t be guilty until proven innocent,” Musk noted, adding “we’re just sort of in the witch burning phase here; just being declared a witch is enough to make you a witch and be burnt.”
