Garry Lineker, the former English soccer player and current BBC presenter, recently took to Twitter to question Elon Musk about the abuse his son experienced on the platform. Lineker tweeted, “Hey @elonmusk, any chance you could do something about the abuse my son is getting on Twitter? It’s pretty vile.” Lineker’s son, George, had been targeted by online trolls following his father’s criticism of Arsenal Football Club.
Musk responded to Lineker’s tweet with an offer to help, writing “I’m sorry to hear about this. We’re looking into it and will do what we can to help.” Lineker thanked Musk for his response and offered his gratitude.
