SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Following their report earlier this week exposing the open bias against free speech among the higher-ups at Twitter, Project Veritas has released a second undercover video of an unsuspecting Twitter executive not only confirming the social media platform’s stance in favor of censorship, but also making fun of his potential future boss – Elon Musk – for his Asperger’s Syndrome.

Musk, 50, whose $44 billion purchase of the popular mircoblogging site is still in the works, retweeted a clandestine video clip recorded by a Project Veritas journalist of Twitter lead client partner Alex Martinez calling the Tesla CEO “special needs” and other offensive terms referring to his condition.

“Twitter exec trashing free speech & mocking people with Asperger’s,” Musk said to his followers.

Martinez – who is being filmed in a busy bar at the time – is seen mocking Musk by saying that he is unable to take him seriously because he has Asperger’s, showing a very intolerant view of individuals with different abilities than his own.

“He has Asperger’s, so he’s special…you’re special needs. You’re literally special needs,” he said. “So I can’t even take what you’re saying seriously.”

While talking to the Project Veritas operative, Martinez also said that Twitter’s purpose isn’t to provide a platform for free speech for the masses, and blasted Musk for his stated plans to greatly reduce content policing if he takes over.

“The rest of us who have been here believe in something that’s good for the planet and not just to give people free speech,” he said. “It’s going to be hard for [Musk] to be like, ‘Uhhh, because people should make their own decision.’ It’s like, no, but people don’t know how to make a rational decision if you don’t put out correct things that are supposed to be out in the public.”

Martinez also stated that advertisers for the social media platform were anxious due to Musk’s frequent tweets regarding the future of Twitter, again showing a callous disregard for the concept of unfettered discourse on the internet.

“Advertisers are freaking out because of what he’s, like, tweeting about…like being, like, ‘I want free speech’ …. Yadda, yadda, yadda,” he said.

This video follows a previous one released by Project Veritas on Monday where Twitter Senior Engineer Siru Murugesan was filmed in a restaurant by an undercover reporter saying that he and his fellow employees “hate” Musk’s plan to greatly reduce content moderation.

“Twitter does not believe in free speech…Elon believes in free speech,” Murugesan said. “Some of my colleagues are super left, left, left, left, left. Our jobs are at stake, he’s a capitalist and we weren’t really operating as capitalists, more like very socialist. Like we’re all like commie as fu*k.”
