Elon Musk says he has no mercy for such people – Times of India
Musk has been facing requests from people belonging to far right groups to remove the ban on Jones. “Is it time to let Alex Jones back on Twitter, @elonmusk ? If not, why not?” tweeted author Sam Harris. “Alex fucked up with Sandy Hook. He admitted that and apologized. He also got a lot of “conspiracy theories” right. If serial liars like Biden and Trump are allowed on Twitter then Alex Jones should be allowed too. Please reconsider in the interest of real free speech,” wrote Kim Dotcom, tagging Harris and Musk.
Why the ban on Alex Jones
A jury in the US state of Connecticut last month ordered Jones to pay $965 million in damages to the family members of victims of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. Jones was sued by the families of victims after he claimed that the shooting on December 14, 2012, at the school in Newton, Connecticut, was a hoax staged by US authorities to impose gun control measures. The shooting at the US school had left 20 children aged six to seven and six adults dead. He later accepted that the attack was “100 percent real”.
