Top Lawyer for Twitter Reportedly Cried During Meeting With Employees About Musk Takeover

Top Lawyer for Twitter Reportedly Cried During Meeting With Employees About Musk Takeover

“She is seen internally as Twitter’s ‘moral authority’ and the executive tasked with handling sensitive issues like harassment and dangerous speech.”

Vijaya Gadde is a lawyer who has been a major power player at Twitter for years. She was instrumental in getting Trump thrown off the platform and may have played a role in banning the New York Post story about Hunter Biden’s laptop.

She apparently cried during a meeting with Twitter employees about Elon Musk taking ownership of the company.

Politico reports:

Twitter’s top lawyer reassures staff, cries during meeting about Musk takeover

Monday was an emotional day at Twitter — even for its executives.

Shortly after billionaire Elon Musk bought the powerful social media platform, top Twitter lawyer Vijaya Gadde called a virtual meeting with the policy and legal teams she oversees to discuss what the new ownership could mean for them.

Gadde cried during the meeting as she expressed concerns about how the company could change, according to three people familiar with the meeting. She acknowledged that there are significant uncertainties about what the company will look like under Musk’s leadership.

Twitter spokesperson Trenton Kennedy said Gadde became emotional when discussing her team’s impact and the pride she feels in them…

Gadde, who has worked at Twitter since 2011, is the key executive charged with overseeing Twitter’s trust and safety, legal and public policy functions. She is seen internally as Twitter’s “moral authority” and the executive tasked with handling sensitive issues like harassment and dangerous speech.

She is apparently deeply concerned with hate speech:

“I’m often inspired by the vigorous debates on controversial issues that occur on Twitter, but I’ve also been seriously troubled by the plight of some of our users who are completely overwhelmed by those who are trying to silence healthy discourse in the name of free expression,” Gadde wrote in a 2015 Washington Post op-ed. “At times, this takes the form of hateful speech in tweets directed at women or minority groups; at others, it takes the form of threats aimed to intimidate those who take a stand on issues.”

Ace of Spades offers this analysis:

This is how they end free speech: They claim that “free speech” can only really happen when they exclude the people who are arguing with women and minorities and especially trans people.

Disagreement with protected “marginalized” people is definitionally “hate speech:” if you’re not affirming them, it’s “hate.”

When you argue with these people, they feel chilled from expressing their opinions, and do not offer them.

So you have to censor men, especially white men, and straight people.

Then the “marginalized” people can speak freely.

Then you have “free speech.”

For… some people.

Meanwhile, the meltdown continues for many others.

Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts is reacting to Musk’s takeover by saying we need “algorithmic justice,” whatever that is.

Sunny Hostin of The View insists that Musk only cares about the free speech of straight white men.

Meathead is in a panic.

David Hogg is sure there’s something sinister afoot here.

Have you ever seen the left lose their minds over something like this before now?

I am WOMAN! Hear me… cry.

    I’m a woman, and when I cry it’s because I have a reason to. This is just embarrassing.

      I haven’t been able to cry since 1995 when I lost my son. And that was difficult. I had to force myself to cry. It just didn’t come naturally. That’s when I started to wonder about the differences between sociopaths and psychopaths.

      I had to wonder, what WTF was wrong with me? If there’s ever any time a man should be allowed to cry it’s when he’s losing his child.

      Literally, I was pounding on myself. “Cry, m**therf****er. This is the last chance you’ll ever get to be a father”

      I was torn apart on the inside. From the outside you wouldn’t think I cared.

They woke and are all a-Twitter. It’s because he’s African-American, right?

Top lawyer for Twitter is crying because she will soon be a former lawyer for Twitter. What a twit!

Watching leftist heads explode is more fun than 4th of July fireworks.

If you think of Twitter as a real- life version of The Shawshank Redemption, I guess this news makes Vijaya Gadde fit into the role of Captain Myron Hadley.

She is probably crying about the fact that Musk can now prove she repeatedly perjured herself in front of the House and Senate and that she knowingly and intentionally interferred in the 2016 and 2020 elections on behalf of the Democrat party.

Agree this is like 4th of July with heads exploding.
On other note next time you are in need of a lawyer find one who has some backbone and won’t go to tears if they don’t get their way.

Babylon Bee already predicted this. Tears cause water damage at Twitter HQ. How do they keep predicting the stuff?

All that’s happened so far is an agreement for Musk to purchase has been reached. Just think what will happen when he actually owns it and starts running it.

Let’s see — We need to preserve free speech and democracy through censorship.

Is it 1984 yet?

Cry more, fascist. You’re not going to get to act like a nazi anymore.

Nothing reassures me more than my bosses in breaking down in tears.
