Elon Musk’s social media platform X has sued a media watchdog that accused the site of allowing antisemitic posts alongside advertising.
In its lawsuit, X, formerly called Twitter, alleges that Media Matters for America “manipulated” data in an attempt to “destroy” the social media platform.
Firms including Apple, Disney, IBM and Comcast have paused adverts on X since the watchdog released its analysis.
After Mr Musk threatened the lawsuit, Media Matters called him a bully.
The advocacy group said last week that ads had appeared on X alongside posts supporting Nazism, such as Hitler quotes and Holocaust denial.
Also, Elon Musk himself last week was accused of amplifying an antisemitic post on the platform.
