White Stripes’ Singer Quits Twitter Over Trump Being Restored

(FiveNation.com)- White Stripes frontman Jack White announced that he would be leaving Twitter over Elon Musk restoring former President Donald Trump’s Twitter account.

In a tweet last week, White blasted Musk for restoring Trump’s account, calling it “absolutely disgusting” and an “asshole move.” He then accused Musk and Joe Rogan of only supporting Republicans because they don’t want to pay their “fair share” of taxes now that they’re rich.

White claimed Donald Trump was responsible for the January 6 riot at the Capitol, adding that Elon Musk only reinstated Trump because he wants to “help a fascist have a platform” in exchange for tax breaks. White claimed Musk’s giving Trump a platform on Twitter is no different from letting Trump hold a KKK rally from a stage Musk owns.

In addition to White, Nine Inch Nails lead singer Trent Reznor also made a great show of leaving Twitter to protest Trump’s account being restored.

Reznor left Twitter last Sunday after calling Musk’s takeover an “embarrassment.” He complained that people don’t need “the arrogance of the billionaire class” who think they “can just come in and solve everything.”

Reznor admitted that even before Musk took over, Twitter had “become such a toxic environment,” so “for my mental health,” he needed to “tune out.”

Over the last week or so, Elon Musk has been slowly restoring several of the high-profile Twitter accounts that got permanently suspended by the previous management, including the Christian satire site The Babylon Bee, the undercover journalists at Project Veritas, and Congresswoman Majorie Taylor Green.

Last week, Musk conducted a Twitter poll asking if he should grant “amnesty” to all suspended accounts that did not get suspended for breaking the law or “egregious spam.”

On Thanksgiving, Musk announced that “the people have spoken,” and he would be granting “amnesty” to all suspended accounts.
