Elon Musk Shuts Down BBC Reporter: You Want Me to Censor Content You Don’t Like?

‘I am asking for specific examples’
By Grabien Staff


MUSK: “Content that you don’t like or hateful? Describe a hateful thing.”
CLAYTON: “Yeah, I mean, you know, just content that would solicit a reaction to something that may include something that is slightly racist or slightly sexist, those kinds of — those kinds of things.”
MUSK: “So you think if something is slightly sexist, it should be banned? Is that what you’re saying?”
CLAYTON: “No, I’m not saying anything, I’m saying — “
MUSK: “Well, I’m just curious, I’m trying to see what you mean by hateful content and I’m asking for specific examples. And you just said that if something is slightly sexist, that is hateful content. Does that mean that it should be banned?”
CLAYTON: “Well, you’ve asked me whether my feed, whether it’s got less or more. I’d say it’s got slightly more.”
MUSK: “That’s why I’m asking for examples. Can you name me one example?”
CLAYTON: “I honestly don’t — honestly, I don’t — “
MUSK: “You can't name a single example?”
CLAYTON: “I’ll tell you why, because I don’t actually read that for-you feed anymore, because I don’t particularly like it.”
