Tesla CEO Elon Musk threw a subtle jab at Twitter’s new CEO Parag Agrawal on Wednesday.
Musk tweeted a meme depicting the executive as Stalin and his predecessor, Jack Dorsey, as Nikolay Yezhov, a Stalin associate who was assassinated under his direction.
Musk’s tweet comes as Agrawal has faced criticism for a previous comment in which he said the social media giant’s role is “not to be bound by the First Amendment.”
In addition, Agrawal previous tweet had read; “If they are not gonna make a distinction between muslims and extremists, then why should I distinguish between white people and racists.”
He later issued a follow-up tweet that he was simply quoting comedian Asif Mandvi from “The Daily Show”.
It also comes after former Trump adviser and CEO of conservative social media platform GETTR, Jason Miller, expressed concern that “censorship & political discrimination” would come to Twitter under Agrawal’s direction.
