Suspending a news publication’s account for publishing “a truthful story” was “incredibly inappropriate,” Twitter’s soon-to-be owner Elon Musk said, in an apparent reference to the company’s response to a 2020 New York Post story about Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden.

Musk was responding to a tweet from the co-host of a podcast on U.S. politics that described Twitter Chief Legal Officer Vijaya Gadde as “the top censorship advocate” at Twitter.
