elon musk tweets 'stay at work' twitter merch day after finding 'stay woke' shirts at hq

A day after Twitter chief Elon Musk revealed a closet of #STAYWOKE t-shirts at the platform’s headquarters, Musk tweeted a photo of what he called a new Twitter merch, a spin on the aforementioned statement hashtag.

On Wednesday, Nov. 23, the billionaire shared a video of what appears to be him poking fun at statement t-shirts designed by members of Twitter’s internal business group for black employees. Elon Musk captions the video, “Found in closet at Twitter HQ fr,” with two hard laugh emojis.

Afterward, the head of Twitter criticized Black Lives Matter demonstrators, claiming that the shirts he displayed in the video were from protests in Ferguson, Missouri. Additionally, he mentioned how the protests that were held in that region were actually misguided.

Musk also claimed that the phrase “Hands up, don’t shoot” was made up. Reports tell us that Musk later deleted that post and simply shared a link to the Department of Justice report into the death of Michael Brown, which sparked those protests.

New Twitter Merch

Clearly taking a spin on the “stay woke” shirts, the Chief Twit spoofed the design and revealed a new “Stay at work” shirt. “Awesome new Twitter merch!” Musk captioned the photo.

According to Foxnews, the new design, which could just be a meme, is a reference to Musk’s changing of work policy at Twitter. Musk terminated remote work for employees after taking over the platform.

The social media platform announced in May 2020 that since the work-from-home policies turned out to be productive during COVID-19 lockdowns, employees could work remotely for as long as they desired.

Stay at Work

Musk was eager to change workplace policies during his first days as Twitter’s boss. In fact, the removal of the WFH policy was the subject of his very first email to Twitter employees.

In the email, the tech CEO even stated that there is “no way to sugar coat the message,” explaining that the economic situation will undoubtedly affect Twitter and other ad-reliant companies.

Per the email, Musk will discontinue remote work and require employees to work at least 40 hours per week in the office. According to multiple reports, any exceptions would require his personal approval.

The banter tweet from the CEO gathered some laughs from supporters, while some pointed out how the “meme” is problematic and a few raised concerns about free speech in the bird app.

Amnesty on Suspended Accounts

In other news, Elon Musk raised the possibility that other suspended accounts may make a return on the platform after a poll centered on “general amnesty” for previously suspended users was created.

American rapper Ye already got his account back earlier this month, and the famed media personality is best known for losing his previous account due to his controversial statements. It is also worth noting that a poll also moved to bring back former US President Trump, who openly refused the welcome.

Under Musk’s leadership, Ye and Trump got their platforms back, and more suspended accounts will see a comeback.
