Elon Musk Meets with ‘Blacklisted’ Anti-Lockdown Professor

Elon Musk has met with a Stanford professor who was “blacklisted” by Twitter’s old management for questioning lockdowns.

Musk invited Dr. Jay Bhattacharya for a meeting at Twitter’s headquarters where the two apparently discussed the platform’s censorship practices and pandemic-related science.

Bhattacharya is an infectious diseases expert and the author of the Great Barrington Declaration.

In the declaration, thousands of scientists joined Bhattacharya in calling for a policy of herd immunity over lockdowns.

He was just one of the many experts who Twitter censored during the pandemic.

Bhattacharya explained that he visited Twitter HQ at Musk’s invitation.

He said he attended the meeting to learn more about the “blacklist” that he was placed on after he came out against shutting down society:

The renowned professor expressed gratitude to Musk for allowing him to investigate what went on.

Musk responded in kind, thanking Bhattacharya for his “adherence to science.”

Last month, the professor was one of the leading voices who encouraged Musk to expose Twitter’s previous censorship practices.

Musk has promised that details of how Twitter suppressed Covid information will be “coming bigtime.”

As Slay News previously reported, Musk has been hinting that he may have information regarding Dr. Anthony Fauci, who led the push for lockdowns in the U.S.

In a Sunday morning post on Twitter, Musk declared: “My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci.”

Musk has continued to take shots at Fauci, the Chief Medical Advisor to President Joe Biden and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).

It’s unclear if Musk is referring to the GOP’s planned investigations or whether Fauci may be implicated in yet-to-be-published installments of the Twitter Files.

Bhattacharya has previously warned, “When you take a position that is at odds with the scientific clerisy, your life becomes a living hell.”

Speaking at the recent Academic Freedom Conference at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business, Bhattacharya, who previously described lockdowns as the most catastrophically harmful policy in “all of history,” and “the single worst public health mistake in the last 100 years,” noted “we have a high clerisy that declares from on high what is true and what is not true.”

He added that he has come to a conclusion that “academic freedom is dead.”
