Jameela Jamil is not cool with Elon Musk’s recent purchase of Twitter.
The ‘Good Place’ actress said “Hasta La Vista, Baby” to the social media platform on Monday, April 25.
We previously reported on Musk’s purchase of the company for a cool $44 billion.
Elon Musk Buys Twitter!
The Hollywood Reporter and other outlets reported that the Tesla founder and Twitter reached a deal on Monday. This deal takes place less than a month after Musk had secured a 9% stake in the company, which, at the time, made him the largest shareholder of the company.
Today, Musk tweeted, “I hope that even my worst critics remain on Twitter, because that is what free speech means.”
Elon Musk Hopes His Worst Critics Stay On Twitter
Well, it looks like one of his worst critics doesn’t agree with his belief of “free speech.”
Jamil first tweeted, “Ah he got twitter. I would like this to be my what lies here as my last tweet. Just really *any* excuse to show pics of Barold. I fear this free speech bid is going to help this hell platform reach its final form of totally lawless hate, bigotry, and misogyny. Best of luck.”

She continued to say, “One good thing about Elon buying twitter is that I will *FINALLY* leave and stop being a complete menace to society on here. So it’s win win for you all really.”
Jameela Jamil Is FINALLY Leaving Twitter
The company’s board chair, Bret Taylor, was first approached with the deal to buy Twitter through text messages for $54.20 per share earlier this month. On Monday, Taylor released a statement through the company announcing the deal.
“The Twitter Board conducted a thoughtful and comprehensive process to assess Elon’s proposal with a deliberate focus on value, certainty, and financing,” he said. “The proposed transaction will deliver a substantial cash premium, and we believe it is the best path forward for Twitter’s stockholders.”
Earlier this month, Musk explained why he wanted to buy the company at TED 2022: A New Era, which was being held in Vancouver, British Columbia, as per The Hollywood Reporter.
“Twitter has become kind of the de facto town square, so it is just really important that people have the reality and the perception that they are able to speak freely within the bounds of the law,” he explained. Musk stated that he also wants to “open source the algorithm” to improve trust in the social media service.
“This is not a way to make money,” the Tesla CEO stated. “My strong intuitive sense is that having a public platform that is maximally trusted and broadly inclusive is extremely important to the future of civilization. I don’t care about the economics at all.”
