Nine Inch Nails Frontman Abandons 1.6 Million Followers on Twitter, Musk Responds – Watch

And another one bites the dust, which has been a theme at Twitter as folks on the left leave the social media platform because they don’t like what Elon Musk is doing as the new CEO.

The latest to leave is Nine Inch Nails frontman, Trent Reznor.

Musk didn’t waste any time responding and fired back at the Oscar-winning composer. 

“And it turns out that Trent ‘nine inch nails’ Reznor is actually a crybaby,” the social media platform’s owner and CEO replied in an unrelated tweet.

“I like his music tbh, but maybe Etsy is more his style,” Musk, 51, continued with another shot at the “Closer” singer.

Reznor interviewed with the Hollywood Reporter on Nov. 19 and just had one word for Musk’s Twitter takeover, “Embarrassment.”

He went on to talk about his departure from Twitter being due to mental health. He had 1.6 million followers on the platform and said this about leaving, “We don’t need the arrogance of the billionaire class to feel like they can just come in and solve everything. Even without him involved, I just find that it has become such a toxic environment. For my mental health, I need to tune out. I don’t feel good being there anymore.”

He’s not alone, others have left too like Whoopi Goldberg, Sara Bareilles, Shonda Rhimes, and more.

Last week, Musk reinstated former President Donald Trump’s Twitter account, which was previously suspended after the Jan. 6 riot.

Reznor previously made clear his views on social media in a 2017 interview with Yahoo! He said that it was a toxic environment for musicians. 

“The Internet is giving voice to everybody thinking that someone gives a s— what they have to say and they have the right. I think, in general, that has created a toxic environment for artists and led to some very safe music,” Reznor said. “It’s a vicious cycle, and I think it’s unhealthy.”
