Amber Heard ‘deletes Twitter account’ amid ex Elon Musk’s controversial takeover

Amber Heard is no longer on Twitter, as her account on the social media platform disappeared just days after her ex-boyfriend Elon Musk took over the company.

The 36-year-old actress previously posted under the handle @realamberheard, but her profile is no longer visible on the site, sparking speculation she has deleted her account.

When searching for her profile, a message simply reads: “This account doesn’t exist. Try searching for another.”

According to reports, the account went down earlier today. Amber, who dated Elon in 2017, hasn’t spoken out about the changes to her profile.

The move comes after 51-year-old Elon finally closed his $44billion takeover of the social media site last week and announced a slew of upcoming changes.

The Mirror has approached Amber’s representatives for comment.

Billionaire Elon has reportedly shared his plans to start charging users for the blue-tick verification badge and is said to have asked employees to review Twitter’s hateful conduct policy.

Following his takeover, a string of celebrities announced they will be leaving the platform. This includes the likes of Jameela Jamil, Alex Winter and Shonda Rhimes.

Grey’s Anatomy writer Shonda wrote: “Not hanging around for whatever Elon has planned. Bye.”

Toni Braxton also confirmed her exit, saying: “I’m shocked and appalled at some of the “free speech” I’ve seen on this platform since its acquisition.”

Elon is now Twitter’s sole board member and declared himself “chief Twit” following his controversial takeover.

The Tesla founder is thought to be planning to eliminate around 3,700 employees and bring an end to Twitter’s ‘work from anywhere’ policy in an attempt to drive down costs.

The use of the N-word on Twitter increased by nearly 500% in the 12 hours immediately after Elon’s deal was finalised, according to the Network Contagion Research Institute.

American basketball star LeBron James, who has more than 52.3million Twitter followers, responded by writing: “I don’t know Elon Musk and, tbh, I could care less who owns twitter.

“But I will say that if this is true, I hope he and his people take this very seriously because this is scary AF.

“So many damn unfit people saying hate speech is free speech.”
