In a recent revelation, Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter/X, exposed Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), for allegedly soliciting donations from him, much like he did with other prominent entities like Adidas, the Brooklyn Nets, and Kyrie Irving.
This controversy unfolded during a CNBC interview with Jonathan Greenblatt when journalist Andrew Ross Sorkin questioned Greenblatt about his intentions in seeking a role at Twitter/X or soliciting donations for the ADL. Greenblatt responded by labeling the question as an “anti-Semitic trope,” which prompted Musk to assert that Greenblatt indeed sought donations and accused him of attacking Sorkin, who is Jewish, for merely asking a legitimate conflict-of-interest question.

I love how ADL overlord Jonathan Greenblatt says the ADL is just a little “nonprofit in New York” with no power as if they didn’t lead a pressure campaign that squeezed $60 billion from Meta’s market cap for not complying with their demands— Ashley St. Clair (@stclairashley) September 6, 2023

Musk’s statements ignited a debate on the ADL’s influence and tactics. Some commentators argued that the ADL wields significant power in the West, as evidenced by a substantial decline in U.S. advertising on Twitter/X, contrasting with Asia’s advertising growth on the platform. Additionally, there were claims that the ADL operates like a mafia, enforcing ideological compliance.
Furthermore, Musk and others disputed Greenblatt’s assertions during the interview, including claims that Elon Musk brought anti-Semitism and hate speech to Twitter/X. Contrary to this, an independent assessment found that hate speech impressions on the platform were relatively low. Greenblatt’s shifting statements about the ADL’s engagement with advertisers also raised eyebrows.
Musk expressed bewilderment at Marc Lamont Hill, a former critic of the ADL who was “canceled” and lost his CNN job for criticizing Israel, now defending the ADL and characterizing Musk’s criticism as “dangerous” and “antisemitic.”
Elon Musk’s attack on the ADL is dangerous, dishonest, and deeply antisemitic. He has turned this platform into an unprofitable, white supremacist cesspool. Instead of taking accountability, he has chosen to not-so-subtly scapegoat Jews, which invites violence from his Nazi base.— Marc Lamont Hill (@marclamonthill) September 5, 2023
This controversy exposes tensions between Musk and the ADL and raises questions about the organization’s influence, tactics, and responses to criticism. How this situation will impact the relationship between prominent figures in the tech and advocacy worlds and the ongoing debate over free speech and ideological influence remains to be seen.
