Too many blue-check celebs, alas, are finding out the hard way that nobody on the social media media platform is going to be devastated when they call it quits. The latest is Whoopi Goldberg, who called the platform “a mess” since Elon Musk took over. On Monday night, she deleted her account.
The reactions fell into two camps: 1) Bye, Felicia. 2) Wait, you were on Twitter? Goldberg — once an actual movie star and Academy Award winner but now basically only known for her punditry aboard “The View” — announced her departure on the show Monday.
“It’s been a little over a week since Elon Musk took over Twitter, and the place is a mess,” she said.
“I’m getting off today because I just feel like, you know, it’s so messy, and I’m tired of now having had certain kinds of attitudes blocked now getting back on. So I’m gonna get out, and if it settles down enough and I feel more comfortable, maybe I’ll come back. But as of tonight, I’m done with Twitter.”
