Reznor is upset that a billionaire can swoop in and fix “everything,” according to an interview he gave to the Hollywood Reporter last week.
“I’m about to depart [Twitter],” Reznor said. “We don’t need the arrogance of the billionaire class to feel like they can just come in and solve everything.”
“Even without him involved, I just find that it has become such a toxic environment. For my mental health, I need to tune out. I don’t feel good being there anymore.”
Reznor’s account went inactive at 6:00 a.m. Tuesday, the report noted.
The 57-year-old rock singer is just the latest celebrity to leave the platform, and it appears that Musk remains unbothered.
It “turns out that Trent ‘nine inch nails’ Reznor is actually a crybaby,” Musk tweeted in response to a post about the environment of Twitter after the reinstatement of former President Donald Trump’s account.
“You are [a] stupid idiot. Trent Reznor is one of the best musicians ever,” one user clapped back at Musk.
“I like his music tbh, but maybe Etsy is more his style,” Musk replied.
