Former CNN host Don Lemon said Wednesday on CNN’s “OutFront” that Elon Musk seemed averse to facts” during their interview, which caused Musk to terminate a contract Lemon had with X/Twitter.

In a clip of the interview, Lemon said, “Hate speech on the platform is up. Do you believe that X and you have some responsibility to moderate hate speech on the platform, that you wouldn’t have to answer these questions from reporters about the Great Replacement Theory as it relates to–
Musk said, “I don’t have to answer these questions.”

Lemon continued, “Great replacement theory as it relates to Jewish people. Do you think that–

Musk said, “I don’t have to answer questions from reporters. Don, the only reason I’m doing this interview is because you’re on the X platform and you asked for it. Otherwise, there would not do– I would not do this interview.”

Lemon said, “So you don’t think– do you think that you wouldn’t get in trouble or you wouldn’t be criticized for these things?

Musk said, “I’m criticized constantly. I could care less.”

Anchor Erin Burnett said, “Illuminating in so many ways.”

Lemon said, “The people who go and shoot up people, whether they be Latino people who live in Texas, or black people who are in a supermarket in Buffalo, or Jewish people who are, who are worshiping those people use the same rhetoric that they are tropes, that they’re either racist for Latinos or black people, or for Jewish people. And I wanted to know if he, if he felt any responsibility as someone who has the one of the largest social media information platforms in the world quarter billion people a quarter billion people. I think it’s 455 or 500 million we can users a week.”

He added, “It doesn’t seem that he feels he has any responsibility with that because he seemed really averse to facts. That facts did not matter to him. It didn’t matter that he retweeted things that were offensive to people.”
