In a now-deleted Instagram post, Julian Casablancas called out Elon Musk’s recent Twitter turmoil. The social media platform recently rolled out its Twitter Blue paid subscription, which allowed users to pay for blue verification badges and resulted in multiple accounts impersonating public figures.
“PS dear Rober Baron asshole who makes butt ugly ass cars and thinks billionaires show pay no taxes… (Elon Musk),” he wrote in a caption which Stereogum captured before he deleted the post. “Maybe twitter could deal if you didn’t (like a typical ceo asshole bottom-line hungry super-villain) fire half your staff. What a great symbol for 2020s pieces of shit.”
Last month (October 28) Musk completed his takeover of Twitter Inc, becoming the platform’s new owner and instantly firing numerous top executives at the company including CEO Parag Agrawal, chief financial officer Ned Segal and legal affairs and policy chief Vijaya Gadde.
