It’s not a secret that Elon Musk bought Twitter in 2022 and instantly wreaked havoc across the social media platform. The polarizing Tesla CEO made several controversial changes that turned users away. Meanwhile, many celebrities left Twitter because they don’t like him or his ridiculous ideas.
Even more damaging was the loss of many advertisers who saw the network as a giant risk. In this list, we’ve accumulated the most high-profile celebrities and advertisers who left Twitter since Musk bought it. Some returned, but who knows if the site will be around for much longer.
Heard had a controversial and polarizing 2022 because of her highly-publicized lawsuit against Johnny Depp. The actress joined the ranks of the many who left Twitter after Musk’s takeover. However, her case is interesting because there was no virtue signaling or dramatic announcement.
