Elon Musk says Brazil X employees have been threatened with arrest, promises 'data dump' on Supreme Court judge once they're safe | 9 April 2024 | Brazilian employees of X have been told that they need to be in a safe place and then Elon Musk will "do a full data dump" on the situation in Brazil. He posted that the X employees have been told that "they will be arrested" in the country. The events follow Brazilian Supreme Court Justice Alexandre de Moraes taking steps to shut down popular accounts on the social media giant in the country and starting an inquiry into Musk for "obstruction of Justice" and "incitement to crime." This is the latest escalation in the conflict between de Moraes and Musk as the government of the country has attempted to block popular X accounts. X has also been threatened with a $20,000 fine per profile if the platform does not block the accounts in the country.
