Meanwhile, she explained, "I’m going to get out, and if it settles down and I feel more comfortable, maybe I’ll come back," she said. "But as of tonight, I’m done with Twitter," reported Fox News. Goldberg also added, “People keep saying it’s free speech, but all speech is not free speech. Some speech is not okay free speech. So everybody has to agree on that, but if people keep saying ‘You hurt my free speech” it’s going to be a problem. You know what? This is our problem. But it ain’t my problem today because I’m out.”

After the show, she tweeted in a now-deleted account, "To everyone, Thanks for everything! Until we meet again! Love, Whoop," reported Fox News. Meanwhile, Co-host Sunny Hostin opined that “I follow legal scholars there, I follow SCOTUS blog, I follow thought leaders, and it’s such a good place for that, And now you’ve got this Elon Musk turning it into something it was never intended to be. He says it’s going to be ‘the public square.’ Well, I don’t want to be part of that public square but I also don’t want to miss the valuable information that can be put on there," reported Deadline.

Co-host Ana Navarro claimed, “I think it’s time the U.S. government take a look at this, because in the same way that we are regulated by the FCC and radio stations are regulated, frankly, a place like Twitter has far more reach and is far more dangerous.” As for Musk, she said, “he is there causing drama on a daily basis.”
