Former NBA player Enes Kanter Freedom has fallen out with Twitter CEO Elon Musk, accusing him of restricting access to some of the medium’s content in Turkey because of the Turkish presidential election.

Kander Freedom has long been campaigning against human rights abuses in Turkey by the Erdogan government.

“I don’t want to hear about Elon Musk talking about free speech again. It literally succumbs to a dictatorship,” Enes Kanter said on “CNN This Morning.”

“The Turkish government called Ilon to tell him no less, no more: ‘If you don’t ban two accounts, then we will shut down the entire app in Turkey.’ And he chose jobs and money over his morals and principles. So I never want to hear him talk about free speech again,” he said. “He was wrong about that, for sure” emphasized the former NBA player.

Twitter has been accused several times of restricting content in Turkey as the country conducts presidential elections, which are headed for a second round in two weeks.

The Global Government Affairs (GGA) Twitter account tweeted on Friday that “had taken steps to restrict access to some content in Turkey” in response to “legal process”.

“One day before a crucial election in Turkey, Twitter appears to be giving in to the demands of the country’s authoritarian ruler, Erdogan, and censoring speech on the platform,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) tweeted .

Musk defended the move, writing on Twitter that “the choice is to completely restrict Twitter or restrict access to certain tweets.” On Saturday, a day before presidential and parliamentary elections, Twitter revealed it had restricted access to certain content in Turkey in order to keep the platform available to users in the country. The court orders, shared by Twitter, sought to block access on the grounds that they posed a threat to public order and national security. He added that five court orders had been issued against him in relation to these actions and he had already objected to four of them.

Last year, Turkey introduced a law requiring social media companies to remove “disinformation” content and share user data with authorities if they post content that constitutes crimes, including misleading information.
