Elon Musk Clashes With Australian Court Over Violent Videos on X

·1 min

An Australian court has extended an injunction against a social media platform, ordering it to remove videos of a recent stabbing. The court’s decision sets up a clash with the platform’s owner, who has characterized the injunction as censorship. The videos, which depicted the stabbing of a bishop during a church service, garnered hundreds of thousands of views on the platform. While other social media platforms complied with the regulator’s order to remove the videos, the platform in question refused. It now faces potential fines for noncompliance. The platform’s owner had previously promised to uphold free speech but has recently become more defiant towards legal orders to remove content.
