Elon Musk made a huge offer to buy social media giant Twitter outright earlier this week. Musk has been at odds with the company over what he claims are free speech issues. The Tesla boss has also been scrutinized by the Securities Exchange Commission over his use of the platform to pump up stocks in his favor.

Twitter employees are terrified at the prospect of a hostile takeover by Elon Musk. With Musk in control and not having to answer to shareholders, the site could become his own personal propaganda playground. At least one major celebrity is showing big support for Musk’s efforts.

Caitlin Jenner recently appeared on Fox News’ “America Reports.” There, she said she believes “woke” employees at Twitter are ruining the site. It is a part of a continuing narrative from conservatives that believe Twitter suppresses their right to free speech.

“Right now, social media and so many big companies have become captive to their employees. These woke employees, and this woke movement we have out there.”

Twitter has joined Netflix and Disney as favorite targets of right-wing activists. Disney employees threatened to walk out before the company took a stance against Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” law. Netflix workers famously walked out after the company showed support for Dave Chappelle after transphobic comments in one of his stand-up specials.

Jenner says that Twitter would rather do what’s right for society instead of what’s right for the company. A corporation deserves better treatment than people in Jenner’s mind. Caitlyn Jenner is fully behind Elon Musk putting a stop to “woke” culture on Twitter.
