RAT Rock News

Many people aren’t too fond of the recent news regarding Elon Musk’s deal to purchase Twitter for $44 billion, and Paul Stanley is one of those people.

The Starchild shared via Twitter, “I may be missing something (please tell me). Rather than funding a personal acquisition, wouldn’t our world be better advanced by using far less than 44 BILLION DOLLARS to eradicate world hunger? Cure cancer? The list is long & the possibilities endless.”

As previously reported, Musk plans taking the social media company private and touted the move as a win for free speech, despite the fact the Tesla CEO has a history of trying to shut down, silence or punish anyone who goes public with criticism of his projects or practices as detailed by Fortune. Musk has also blocked people on Twitter, including 19-year old Jack Sweeny, who created a Twitter bot that tracks Musk’s Gulfstream private jet and posts real-time updates of its location from publicly available data.
