Whoopi Goldberg Announces Plan To Leave Twitter
(USNewsMag.com) – Elon Musk took over Twitter just two weeks ago, and he’s already started implementing changes. Numerous celebrities have left the platform as a result of its new leadership. Whoopi Goldberg recently announced she plans to leave as well.
On Monday, November 7, Goldberg discussed the Twitter takeover on “The View.” According to Fox News, the actress claimed, “Some speech is not OK free speech.” She told the other co-hosts she’d be leaving the platform later that day because “it’s so messy.” Though she has decided to deactivate her account, Goldberg said she might come back down the road if she feels “comfortable.”
After the show, Goldberg wrote a final tweet to her followers, thanking them and saying, “Until we meet again! Love, Whoop.”

Goldberg is the latest celebrity to quit the platform. Shonda Rhimes, the television powerhouse who created “Grey’s Anatomy,” left Twitter shortly after Musk took over. HOLA! reported that Gigi Hadid also decided to quit the platform, saying it “is becoming more and more of a cesspool of hate [and] bigotry,” and she doesn’t “want to be a part of” it anymore. Singer Toni Braxton also quit, telling her followers that since Musk took over, it isn’t a “safe space” for people of color.
