IBM has immediately suspended all advertising on Elon Musk’s X platform, reports Reuters.
IBM took such measures after it was discovered that its ads were placed next to pro-Nazi and pro-Hitler content.
“IBM has zero tolerance for hate speech and discrimination and we have immediately suspended all advertising on X while we investigate this entirely unacceptable situation,” the company emphasized.
Before that, Media Matters found that corporate ads for IBM, Apple, Oracle, and Xfinity were placed alongside anti-Semitic content. In response, X said that the content referenced by Media Matters would no longer be able to make money from its publications.
The day before, Elon Musk was involved in another scandal. He supported an anti-Semitic post on Platform X that falsely claimed that members of the Jewish community incited hatred of white people.
By the way, the Center for Combating Digital Hate (CCDH) found that platform X does not moderate posts that contain hate speech and promote anti-Semitic conspiracies, dehumanizing Muslims and Palestinians.
