Project Veritas released video footage Monday night claiming to show a senior Twitter engineer saying how the company “does not believe in free speech,” and that his colleagues, who “hate” Elon Musk, and are “commie as f**k.”
Project Veritas claims to have interviewed Senior Engineer Siru Murugesan, who appears to say during a discussion about Musk’s takeover that “Twitter does not believe in free speech,” according to the video footage. “Elon believes in free speech.”
Musk has called himself a “free speech absolutist” and said Twitter “serves as the de facto public town square,” adding that “failing to adhere to free speech principles fundamentally undermines democracy.”
Murugesan then reportedly said that “our jobs are at stake” with Musk’s takeover.
“He’s a capitalist and we weren’t really operating as capitalists, more like very socialist. Like we’re all like commies as f**k,” Murugesan said, according to Project Veritas.
Murugesan appeared to say that while he leans left, he became more left-leaning while working at Twitter, where he appeared to say some of his colleagues were super far to the left.
