Despite there being no change to Twitter’s term of service (TOS), only the equal enforcement of it, Whoopi Goldberg announced on Monday’s edition of The View that she would be quitting because “it’s a mess” under new owner Elon Musk. She also denounced free speech, shouting that “all speech is not free speech” and “I’m out.” Meanwhile, the other co-hosts wanted a federal crackdown and European-style intrusions.

“So, it has been a little over a week since Elon Musk took over Twitter and the place – it's a mess,” Goldberg proclaimed at the top of the segment. One of her gripes was that Musk had supposedly ordered so-called comedian Kathy Griffin suspended “for impersonating him on a parody account, which has started a Free Kathy hashtag to trend.”

Of course, an ABC News product doesn’t tell the truth. It wasn’t “a parody account.” I was her own account which she changed the name of to read “Elon Musk,” and she was suspended because the TOS states that a parody account must be labeled as such, which hers wasn’t. The TOS was thus enforced.
