The Washington Post has continued its crusade against Tesla CEO Elon Musk, after claiming that “women and people of color may suffer the most” after his purchase of Twitter.
On Friday, the post promoted an article questioning Musk’s policy of moderating content after finalizing his $44 billion deal to buy the social media company. The newspaper published the article later on Saturday on its Twitter account.

“With Elon Musk looming, the future of Twitter content moderation is uncertain. Experts say women and people of color may suffer the most,” the Washington Post wrote on Twitter.
Critics mocked the tweet, calling out the newspaper’s insistence that women and minorities would suffer from the moderation of Musk’s content.
“They won’t stop,” Contributing Editor Stephen L. Miller wrote in a tweet to The Spectator.
“This stunt has lost its effect,” Grabien founder Tom Elliott wrote.
Typical phrasing of the liberal media: ‘Experts say women and people of color will suffer the most,’ wrote Tim Graham, executive editor of Newsbusters.
The Washington Post has long criticized Musk’s purchase of Twitter since the billionaire’s initial purchase of 9.2% of the company’s stock in early April. With Musk’s increasing control over the social media company, Washington Post reporters and contributors have become more critical of Musk and his policy on free speech.

In particular, Washington Post columnist Max Boot published a column in which he claimed that Musk should be “the last person to take over Twitter.”
“No one who thinks the problem with social media is that too much content moderation, not too little, should own one of the internet’s most powerful platforms,” Bot wrote.
The attacks came despite a similar purchase of the Washington Post in 2013 by Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos.
