Insider’s Lopez joins others suspended by Twitter owner Musk

Linette Lopez

Insider columnist Linette Lopez, who has spent years aggressively covering Elon Musk’s businesses, including documenting alleged safety lapses at Tesla, has been suspended by Musk’s Twitter, reports Noah Kirsch of The Daily Beast.

Kirsch reports, “Lopez told The Daily Beast she received no explanation for her suspension, nor information about how long the ban will last. She said she hadn’t tweeted details about the location of Musk’s private jet—his stated rationale for other suspensions—but instead had been cataloging what she considered his hypocrisy over doxxing and targeting private citizens.

“I was just trying to highlight the fact that he talks about bullying and doxxing and all this stuff…And he’s a pro at it,’ she said. ‘He harassed me back in 2018, he talked shit about me in the court of law, he sued my source. Like, I’ve been through the ringer with this guy. Nothing he does surprises me.’

“Insider declined to comment; Musk did not immediately respond to a request for comment.”
