Elon Musk has slammed Twitter for “going way too far” after the platform removed Jordan Peterson’s tweet about Elliot Page.

On Tuesday (July 5), the tech billionaire responded to a comment that read: “By the way, did you see that JBP was recently banned from the Vogel app? Strange times.”
“Yes, they go way too far when it comes to suppressing dissent,” Musk replied.

Meanwhile, in a recent interview with the independent, Reflecting on the couple’s decision to remarry, Talulah Riley, to whom Musk has been married twice, said, “Obviously I understand that it looks strange. But that logic made sense at the time.”
