Elon Musk pledges to cover expenses for individuals who have faced unjust treatment from their employers due to their interactions with X (previously referred to as Twitter).

The wealthy entrepreneur has stated that his company will offer unrestricted financial support for legal matters despite reports of financial difficulties surrounding the platform.

The process of seeking aid or receiving compensation for those impacted remains uncertain. Nonetheless, a number of individuals have expressed their interest and responded to Musk’s statement.

On Sunday, Musk shared a post, formerly called a tweet, which was seen by over a hundred million people.

“If you were unfairly treated by your employer due to posting or liking something on this platform, we will fund your legal bill,” Musk promised. “No limit. Please let us know.”

Job losses due to following of Twitter accounts

It has been the case that some people have lost jobs due to their show of support for a certain tweet by either liking or retweeting them or even just following an account.

For instance, a U.S. video game worker named Kara Lynne was fired from Limited Run Games.

The reasoning behind this was that she followed accounts that expressed negativity towards transgender individuals and expressed enthusiasm for a Harry Potter game, according to Daily Mail.

Lynne, who faced job loss due to a complaint from trans activist Jessica Blank, was mentioned in Musk’s message. He replied to her and requested further information.

Another case involves Sasha White, a literary assistant agent residing in New York. She revealed that she was dismissed from her position at The Tobias Literary Agency for retweeting a comment concerning transgender women.

Elon Musk and his opinion of freedom of speech

Musk has consistently emphasized his support for open expression on the social media platform. He has also taken steps to reinstate accounts of individuals who were previously banned when the platform was owned by others.

For instance, in December, Musk restored the Twitter account of former U.S. President Donald Trump. However, Trump has not yet resumed using the platform.

The former President was banned from using Twitter at the beginning of 2021 due to his involvement in the January 6th assault on the U.S. Capitol. During this event, a faction of his supporters aimed to invalidate the outcomes of the 2020 election.

Over time, it will be revealed whether or not Musk will do good on his vows to pay the legal costs for workers who have been unfairly treated as a result of their usage of the X (Twitter) platform.
