Musk Urges Parents to Watch 'What Is a Woman?' After Twitter Limited Its Visibility


Twitter owner Elon Musk is recommending parents watch a conservative documentary about gender issues.

On Friday morning, the billionaire shared a tweet from the conservative outlet, The Daily Wire, which included its documentary “What is a Woman?”

“Every parent should watch this,” Musk wrote.

He added, “Consenting adults should do whatever makes them happy, provided it does not harm others, but a child is not capable of consent, which is why we have laws protecting minors.”

Musk’s tweet comes after a confusing day for The Daily Wire and its planned stream of the documentary.

On Thursday, the publisher’s co-founder, Jeremy Boreing, unleashed a tweet thread in which he said Twitter initially agreed to premiere the documentary, but then canceled the deal and threatened to limit its visibility.

Twitter said the documentary violated its harassment policy due to instances of “misgendering” in the film.

Still, Boreing said the company planned to stream the documentary on the platform and questioned whether the company would limit its reach.

Hours later, Musk responded to Boreing and appeared to give a green light for the documentary as he said it was a “mistake” to cancel the deal. He added, “It is definitely allowed.”

Yet when the time came for the stream, Twitter did limit the reach of the documentary and prevented users from re-tweeting it.

Amid criticism of the limit on the documentary, Musk wrote, “We’re updating the system tomorrow so that those who follow [The Daily Wire] will see this in their feed, but it won’t be recommended to non-followers (nor will any advertising be associated with it).”

However, conservative commentator Matt Walsh, who was behind the documentary, responded, “Elon, the film is being actively suppressed by people at Twitter right now as we speak. Why? And why would it take until tomorrow to take the hate speech tag off? And what does it mean that ‘advertisers won’t be associated with it’? Also, will it be shareable?”

By Friday morning, the documentary was able to be shared on Twitter.
