Jack White torches Elon Musk’s “A**hole Move” with damning KKK analogy


Rock star Jack White on Monday attacked billionaire Twitter owner Elon Musk for allowing former President Donald Trump back on the social media platform.

“Absolutely disgusting, Elon. That is officially an asshole,” the founder of The White Stripes wrote to Musk on Instagram.

“That’s one of the platforms that we control and have control over, it’s not a city square run by the government,” he explained. “And if I owned a gas station, I wouldn’t sell KKK gasoline to burn crosses and wash my hands afterwards as if I wasn’t helping to promote hatred.”

“You took on a great responsibility with your purchase, and ‘freedom of speech’ is not an umbrella protecting you against it,” White warned.

The musician acknowledged his past support for Musk and his work with electric car maker Tesla.

Musk deserved “many compliments in that department,” White said.

Trump was kicked off Twitter after inciting the U.S. Capitol riot in January 2021. He has previously said he would stop tweeting, instead focusing on his own Truth Social venture.
