IBM Pulls Ads from X

The decision is the result of Musk's amplification of antisemitism

On Thursday, IBM said it would stop advertising on X, formerly Twitter, after a report from a media watchdog organization found that its ads had appeared on the Elon Musk-owned social media site alongside pro-Nazi tweets.

"IBM has zero tolerance for hate speech and discrimination and we have immediately suspended all advertising on X while we investigate this entirely unacceptable situation," the company said in a statement.

The report from the left-leaning nonprofit Media Matters for America, released Thursday, identified IBM as one of several blue-chip companies whose ads had appeared next to tweets that included endorsements of National Socialism, memes portraying Nazism as a spiritual awakening, and Adolf Hitler quotes presented in an inspirational style.
