When people that you don't like, can say things that you don't like... then we have free speech!

Context:
Business man Elon Musk comments during an interview on his feelings on the direction of Twitter, a platform he had been seeking to take control of. At the time, Twitter and other popular social media platforms had been accused of suppressing the speech of conservative politicians and activists.

I think you have to honor people's feelings and their own personal beliefs, and I think that's been lost when it comes to vaccinated and non-vaccinated. And it kinda sucks that that's been lost because you're essentially not giving anyone... You say we live in the land of the free, well you're not giving anyone freedom, because you're making people do something, without necessarily making them, you're making them. And that goes against everything that America stands for - supposedly "stands for." So I am not in any position to tell him what he should or should not be doing.

I'm not to go and ask him if he [received] the Polio vaccine, so why would I ask him if he's received the Covid vaccine.

Meghan Markle, my selfless friend, lives her life – and leads by example – with empathy and compassion. She teaches me every day what it means to be truly noble. Her words illustrate the pain and cruelty she’s experienced.

I know first hand the sexism and racism institutions and the media use to vilify women and people of color to minimize us, to break us down and demonize us. We must recognize our obligation to decry malicious, unfounded gossip and tabloid journalism. The mental health consequences and systemic oppression and victimization are devastating, isolating and all too often lethal.

I want Meghan’s daughter, my daughter and your daughter to live in a society that is driven by respect.

Keep in your memory the fruitage of the spirt is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, mildness, self-control. Against such things there is no law.

It is clear that representing this character in a culturally accurate way holds significance for people, and that to neglect this responsibility would continue a worrying tendency to obscure ethnic minority stories and voices in the Arts. I feel it is important to honour and respect that.

Skrein responded to backlash against his casting in the Hellboy franchise reboot by relinquishing the role he had been cast in. The 34-year-old British actor has earlier tweeted that he would be playing Major Ben Daimio, a character that was Asian American in Mike Mignola’s “Hellboy” comics. The news was met with complaints that Hollywood was once again “whitewashing” an Asian character.
