Disturbed singer David Draiman has reacted to a post by Elon Musk on X, formerly Twitter, where the tech pioneer threatened to file a lawsuit against the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).
Musk alleged that the civil rights organization is responsible for “destroying half the value of the company, so roughly $22 billion.”
Musk issued a series of posts regarding a threat to sue the ADL, which he claims has been pressuring advertisers to stay clear of advertising on the social media platform.
“Based on what we’ve heard from advertisers, ADL seems to be responsible for most of our revenue loss. Giving them maximum benefit of the doubt, I don’t see any scenario where they’re responsible for less than 10% of the value destruction, so ~$4 billion,” Musk tweeted.
In response, on September 5, Draiman responded to Musk, calling for a “one on one to discuss the issues and clear the air”.
Draiman, who is Jewish and has campaigned against anti-Semitism on the platform, told Musk that “my family.my people [sic] are at risk”.
“I think this whole thing was reactionary, and understandably so, given the damage done to the platform you bought,” he wrote. “Let’s talk. One on one to discuss the issues and clear the air. You choose the medium.”
He added, “Let’s give you the opportunity to express your legitimate issues while dispelling the wave of #Antisemitism that’s been unfortunately unleashed.”
