Jack White deleted his Twitter account after Elon Musk restored Donald Trump’s.
Twitter CEO Musk invited former US President Trump to come back to Twitter following a poll on Saturday asking users to vote on whether to lift the ban on Trump’s account.
15 million accounts responded to the poll, leading to nearly 52% of respondents voting “Yes” to lifting the ban.
The former president was barred from using the platform in 2021 for inciting violence following a riot at the US Capitol in Washington DC.
While Trump’s account has now been reinstated, he hasn’t tweeted from it yet. He previously launched his own social media platform, Truth Social.
In response to the recovery of the Twitter account, Another Way to Die singer Jack White deleted the account from his label Third Man Records. Billboard got the explanation he wrote before the account was deleted.
“So you gave Trump his Twitter platform back. Absolutely disgusting, Elon,” White wrote, addressing the CEO directly. “Trump was removed from Twitter for multiple times inciting violence, people dying and getting hurt as a result of his lies and his ego (never mind what his coup did to destroy democracy and our Capitol).”
The singer continued on Instagram, “We’re not even going to sideline you or this platform that conspiracy spreading liars and out-of-control narcissistic capitalists will help tear this country apart, all for Trump’s ego and your tax break agenda. “
