Elon Musk Pokes Fun Of Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal And Jack Dorsey, Shares Stalin Meme

Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey stepped down from his role and the company’s Indian American CTO Parag Agrawal took over as the next chief.

New Delhi: US entrepreneur and business magnate Elon Musk took a dig at new Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal as he took charge of the social media company replacing Jack Dorsey as the next chief. The photoshopped picture depicted Agarwal as USSR dictator Joseph Stalin accompanied by Dorsey who was depicted as Nikolay Yezhov.

Yezhov was a close Stalin aide and associate who was later assassinated by the dictator. The meme shared by Musk has two pictures – one showing Twitter’s new CEO Parag Agrawal accompanied by the outgoing Jack Dorsey in the same frame and the next shows Agrawal smiling, a splash in the water while Dorsey is missing.

The dark humor is seen as a form of criticism of the Indian-origin techie’s comment about free speech on the social media platform as well as Dorsey’s sudden exit. Agarwal, who has been associated with Twitter since 2011, was made the CEO with immediate effect while Dorsey, a co-founder of the social media giant in 2006, was shown the door after serving as its chief executive since 2015.

Musk signalled at the two incidents with the photoshopped image after he reacted to Agarwal’s elevation and had tweeted earlier, “USA benefits greatly from Indian talent!” in a series of tweets shared by Patrick Collison who said, “Google, Microsoft, Adobe, IBM, Palo Alto Networks, and now Twitter run by CEOs who grew up in India. Wonderful to watch the amazing success of Indians in the technology world and a good reminder of the opportunity America offers to immigrants. (Congrats, @paraga!)”
