To: Elon Musk, Chairman of X (formerly Twitter)

Elon Musk: remove Tommy Robinson and Katie Hopkins from X/Twitter

Elon Musk: Please reverse your decision to allow Tommy Robinson and Katie Hopkins back on X/Twitter.

Why is this important?

Since X/Twitter reinstated Tommy Robinson’s biggest social media platform on 6 November 2023, he has wasted no time in whipping up anti-Muslim hate on the site once again.

Tommy Robinson is a prominent far-right figure and founder of the English Defence League. In 2018, he was banned from Twitter for violating rules around ‘hateful conduct’ and now has 5 years of hateful content to share.

And Katie Hopkins was banned in 2020 after years of anti-migrant hate. Her past statements include calling migrants “cockroaches” and “a plague of feral humans” and describing London Mayor Sadiq Khan as the "Muslim mayor of Londonistan".

Blocking the far right’s social media limits their ability to spread the word about their events, fundraisers and hateful rhetoric. After Robinson’s ban from Twitter in 2018 and from Facebook and YouTube in 2019, hundreds of thousands of fewer people saw his content every month. Before his bans Robinson was able to get 10,000 supporters to his rallies, while in 2019 numbers struggled to get beyond a few hundred.

We stand against Musk’s decision to give them both a platform to spread hate and misinformation. Do you agree? Add your name today.
