‘RHOSLC’ stars Meredith Marks and Jen Shah to leave Twitter citing Elon Musk’s ‘self-interested beliefs’
'I cannot continue to support a platform that condones merciless targeted violence and hate,' Meredith Marks stated
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH: While Twitter boss Elon Musk wholeheartedly believes in the return of the former President Donald Trump, many have voiced their disapproval. And among those against Trump’s account getting reinstated are two housewives from Salt Lake City. ‘Real Housewifes of Salt Lake City’ star Meredith Marks and Jen Shah have recently expressed their views on the ex-POTUS regaining access to Twitter and Elon Musk’s efforts to make it happen.
Meredith Marks recently posted in response to the controversies surrounding Musk with a lengthy statement highlighting her thoughts, saying, “Given the recent fundamental changes to this platform, I have chosen to no longer use Twitter.” She continued stating her differences with Elon Musk, adding, “I do not believe in the self-interested owner’s beliefs.” Meredith also stated that she did not condone Musk’s approval of Trump and penned, “While I am a proponent of free speech, Trump was removed from Twitter for inciting violence that led to an insurrection on our capital – leaving countless people injured, lives lost, and our democracy threatened.”
She continued elaborating, “The violence and divide in our country is heartbreaking. I cannot continue to support a platform that condones merciless targeted violence and hate.” Meredith noted that she would be leaving Twitter shortly and would be active on Instagram instead. She said, “Shortly, my Twitter will no longer be active. Hope to see you all on Instagram, @MeredithMarks.” Meredith has since deactivated her Twitter account after releasing the statement.
Meredith’s response to Musk restoring Trump’s Twitter account seemed to resonate with another Salt Lake City housewife as well. Her ‘RHOSLC’ co-star, Jen Shah, retweeted Meredith’s tweet while also adding her two cents to it. Jen tweeted in solidarity, “I agree with you Meredith! Everything you said. Peace out twitter,” hinting that she too will be leaving the social media platform.
I agree with you Meredith! 💗 Everything you said. Peace out twitter ✌🏽 https://t.co/oBULa5pvgY— Jen Shah (@TheRealJenShah) November 20, 2022
Musk restored the former POTUS’ Twitter account on Sunday after a poll asking users of the same won maximum votes in favor of Trump’s return. While Trump’s account has been reinstated with every single tweet intact, the ex-POTUS has not claimed his account as of now.
