Following the mass firings at Twitter, the 27-year-old supermodel took to her Instagram Story to inform her 76 million followers that she has left the microblogging site.
According to accounts, she even referred to the social networking site as a “cesspool of hate & intolerance.”
It’s been a pit of hatred and prejudice for a while, especially under its new leadership, according to Gigi, who added, “I don’t want to be a part of that anymore.”
Gigi issued an apology to her admirers on the site, saying that she had “loved connected” with them “for a decade.”
She said, “I can’t stay it’s a secure environment for anyone, nor a social platform that will bring more good than damage.”
Human Rights Counsel’s tweet about being fired from the internet giant was included to Gigi’s statement.
“Yesterday was my last day at Twitter: the entire Human Rights team has been cut from the company,” Shannon wrote in the post. “I am enormously proud of the work we did to implement the UN Guiding Principles on Business & Human Rights, to protect those at-risk in global conflicts & crises, including Ethiopia.”
On November 4, Twitter let go of around half of its personnel, stating in an email to employees that the layoffs were “required to secure the company’s success going ahead.”
According to sources, a small group of employees moved fast to launch a class action lawsuit in federal court in San Francisco on behalf of Twitter employees.
According to the petition, Twitter is firing employees without giving them enough notice, which is against California and federal employment laws. The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, or WARN, mandates at least a 60-day notice before implementing mass layoffs.
Musk defended his move, saying that “there is no option when the firm is losing over $4M/day” and that he will charge $8 per month for verified customers who have the blue tick.
Any employee who “exited was offered 3 months of severance, which is 50% more than legally necessary,” according to the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla.
Since Musk assumed control of Twitter on October 27, a number of well-known figures, including Sara Bareilles, Toni Braxton, Mick Foley, and “Grey’s Anatomy” scriptwriter Shonda Rhimes, has also chosen to leave the platform.
