Elon Musk Makes Amazon’s Reacher Star MELTDOWN & Quit Twitter Over Blue Check Verification

According to BoundingIntoComics:

Reacher star Alan Ritchson recently shared a video to Instagram declaring Elon Musk’s Twitter as “dangerous” and explained why he’s quitting the social media site.

Ritchson began the video telling a story, “There was a king who loved wine and generously wanted to lavish upon the good citizens of his kingdom his love of wine and so he invited all the villagers far and wide from the countryside to his castle for a feast.”

“And so the banquet hall was filled on feast day with friends and strangers alike,” Ritchson continued. “Everybody eagerly awaiting to taste the king’s prized wine. As the king asked the good citizens to have a seat around the banquet hall table, he began to pour wine, but he poisoned a few glasses along the way. Some of the citizenry noticed this and asked the king why he was poisoning the cups.”

“And he said, ‘This is essential that everybody enjoy the wine as is whether its poison or not.’ And, of course, as you can imagine his kingdom lost a few citizens that day,” he finished.

Explaining the purpose of the story, Ritchson said, “This is who Elon Musk is as a free speech absolutist. Knowing that some of the cups are going to be poisoned and insisting that we all partake in this feast together anyway will not bode well for all us.”

“There must be some intolerance for the poisoned cups among us,” he asserted. “We cannot be tolerant of everything. That’s the tolerance paradox. It requires us to be intolerant of the intolerant.”

Ritchson continued, “As a free speech absolutist Elon Musk believes that all speech whether it’s hate speech or misinformation, something that he has a pension for, should proliferate his site.”
