X CEO Linda Yaccarino called owner Elon Musk “Candid and profound” in a memo to staff addressing the public interview in which Musk told advertisers to “Go f*** yourself.” Yaccarino’s full memo to staff addressing Musk’s interview was published by CNBC. “Our mission at X is bold: to be an open platform without censorship of thought-one that provides people information and the freedom to make up their own minds,” she wrote. Yaccarino also defended Musk publicly in a post on twitter.com, writing that the X owner “Offered an apology, an explanation and an explicit point of view about our position. X is enabling an information independence that’s uncomfortable for some people. We’re a platform that allows people to make their own decisions.”
