Jameela Jamil appears to have announced that she is leaving Twitter after the platform was bought by Elon Musk for $44 billion.

“Ah he got Twitter,” Jamil tweeted to her 1 million followers alongside four images of herself with her dog. “I would like this to be my what lies here as my last tweet. Just really any excuse to show pics of Barold.”

“I fear this free speech bid is going to help this hell platform reach its final form of totally lawless hate, bigotry, and misogyny. Best of luck,” she concluded.

As a result of the Tesla founder successfully acquiring the social media site on Monday, Twitter will be a privately owned company.

Musk, who joined the platform in 2009, previously said that he wants to buy Twitter so as to restore the platform's free speech policy.

“Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” Musk tweeted to his 85.2 million followers following the takeover.

“I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans. Twitter has tremendous potential – I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it,” he added.

The post has since been retweeted almost 400k times and has 2.3 million likes.

The former Good Place actress tweeted before the news hit that if Musk acquires Twitter then she will leave the platform.

She said: “One good thing about Elon buying twitter is that I will *FINALLY* leave and stop being a complete menace to society on here. So it’s win win for you all really.”

After her Twitter announcement, Jamil took to Instagram to share a screenshot of her tweet and addressed the backlash she got.

“I don’t want a freedom of hate speech because it is detrimental to the freedom of speech of the oppressed as they face such horrific and scary real life consequences for objecting to their oppression,” she wrote.

“This is a move towards (esp straight male) white entitlement. Nobody else is safe there if they do not think the already HORRIFYING vitriol on that app is enough ‘freedom’.”

The actress also shared that Twitter will soon be "the purge" and that she would rather spend time with her dog and "protect her sanity".
