Whoopi Goldber has left Twitter and deactivated her account as a result of billionaire Elon Musk’s takeover of the network.
Whoopi Goldberg has said that she is the latest Hollywood liberal to leave Twitter as a result of Elon Musk’s purchase of the social media network.
Goldber made the announcement on Monday’s broadcast of her ABC talk show “The View.”
WhoopiGoldber declares on #TheView that she’s “done with Twitter as of today.” “I’m oin gonna eat out, and if things calms down and I feel more omfortable, I might come back.”
Goldberɡ Deletes Twitter
“It’s been little over a week since Elon Musk took over Twitter, and this place is a shambles,” Goldber stated on her show. “I’m ettin off today because it just seems so nasty, and I’m weary of now having ertain types of attitudes bloked now ettin bak on.”
“So I’m ɡonna ɡet out, and if it settles down enouɡh and I feel more ᴄomfortable maybe I’ll ᴄome baᴄk. “However, as of today, I’m done with Twitter,” she said.
Goldber went on to complain about everything Musk has done since taking over Twitter, like abandoning his plans to charge users $8 for blue hekmarks and suspending lefty comedian Kathy Griffin after she impersonated him on her account.
“People keep saying it’s free speeh, but not all speeh is free speeh,” Goldber explained. “Some speeh is not acceptable free speeh. So everyone must agree on that, but if people keep saying, ‘You harm my free speeh,’ there will be a problem. What do you think? This is our issue. But it’s not my concern today because I’m not here.”

Other Celebrities Leave Twitter
Goldber isn’t the only celebrity who has stated her intention to leave Twitter in protest of Musk’s acquisition. Shonda Rhimes, creator of series such as “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Sandal,” is another celebrity who has done so.
“I’m not hanging around for whatever Elon has in store. “Bye,” she tweeted days before deleting her account, according to The New York Post.
Gii Hadid came to Instagram on Sunday to announce that she was leaving Twitter.
“I deactivated my Twitter account today,” she told US Weekly. “It’s been a cesspool of hate and bias for a long time, but especially under its new leadership, and it’s not a place I want to be a part of.”
“I’m sad for the fans, who I’ve enjoyed onnetin with for over a deade via Twitter, but I can’t claim it’s a safe place for anybody, or a social network that will do more good than damage,” she continued.

Téa Leoni, the star of “Madam Secretary,” is another celebrity who has canceled her Twitter account, claiming that she did so because Musk’s version of the site “exposed too much hatred, too much in the wrong direction” for her liking.

Toni Braxton said that she was leaving Twitter due to harassment, but at the time of writing, she had yet to remove her account.
“I’m shocked and dismayed at some of the ‘free speeh’ I’ve seen after this platform’s acquisition,” she wrote. “Hate speeh under the guise of ‘free speeh’ is intolerable; so, I am opting out of Twitter since it is no longer a safe space for me, my boys, and other POC.”
Some of the “free speeh” I’ve seen on this site after its acquisition has shocked and sickened me. Hate speech hidden behind the guise of “free speech” is unacceptable; so, I have decided to remain away from Twitter since it is no longer a safe space for myself, my boys, and other people of color.
