Grammy award-winning artist Sara Bareilles, who had a hit song about being “brave” enough to “say what you wanna say,” has quit Twitter over Elon Musk’s pledge to restore free speech on the platform.
Bareilles announced in a tweet that she is leaving Twitter after Musk took over, saying the social media platform is “just not for me” without censorship.
Bareilles is best known for her hit song “Brave,” where she sings:
“Say what you wanna say.
“And let the words fall out.
“Honestly I wanna see you be brave.
“With what you want to say
“And let the words fall out.
“Honestly I wanna see you be brave.”
Apparently, she doesn’t appreciate Musk’s “brave” move to try to ensure Americans can say what they “wanna say.”
“Welp,” Bareilles told her fans, on Twitter.
“It’s been fun Twitter. I’m out.
“See you on other platforms, peeps.
“Sorry, this one’s just not for me.”
Welp. It’s been fun Twitter. I’m out. See you on other platforms, peeps. Sorry, this one’s just not for me. ❤️🙏🏼

While Bareilles hasn’t posted since she “quit,” she still has her account with 2.8 million followers active.
She is not the only celebrity losing it over Musk either.
Producer Ken Olin told his 300,000 followers, “I’m out of here.
“The day Elon Musk takes ownership of Twitter, I’m out.
“No judgement. Let’s keep the faith. Let’s protect our democracy.
“Let’s try to be kinder. Let’s try to save the planet.
“Let’s look to find peace in the world.”
He then added a follow-up telling people to follow him on the pro-censorship leftist social media platform Tribel Social.
Billions showrunner Brian Koppelman said:
“Y’all’s, for real, come find me over on Instagram and the tok.
“Gonna really try to take a breather from here for a minute or a month come deal close time.”
He said earlier, “I can see the logic in taking a long Twitter hiatus when EM takes it over.”
“Bill & Ted” star Alex Winter also seems to have quit the social media platform.
He deleted all his posts and told his followers where they can find him before deleting his account.
He also posted a meme showing Musk as a Three Musketeer along with President Donald Trump and Kanye West.
Jameela Jamil, a British actress best known for “The Good Place” and “She-Hulk,” deactivated her account saying: “Ah he got Twitter.
“I would like this to be my what lies here as my last tweet.”
However, she came back.
Mia Farrow said:
“Well if Twitter becomes even more toxic – with Trumpy-treasonous lies & all the hatred – it will be taken less seriously, and people like me will quit for peace of mind.”
Rob Reiner, however, had a change of heart and vowed to stay and fight.
According to the Hollywood producer, voting Democrat is the way to fight back.
“For those who are fighting to preserve our Constitutional Democracy, now is not the time to leave Twitter,” he said.
“Now is the time to VOTE BLUE!”
For those who are fighting to preserve our Constitutional Democracy, now is not the time to leave Twitter. Now is the time to VOTE BLUE!
