(SNews) – Elon Musk has shredded rocker Trent Reznor by blasting the “Nine Inch Nails” frontman as a “crybaby” for boycotting Twitter.
Twitter’s new boss called out Reznor after he announced he was joining other “woke” celebrities in melting down over Musk’s plans for his booming social media platform.
Outside of his band Nine Inch Nails (NIN), Reznor scores the music on Hollywood movies including “Patriots Day,” “Waves,” “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” “Mank,” “Gone Girl,” “Soul,” and “The Social Network.”
Reznor complained about Musk to music outlet Billboard and explained his decision to leave Twitter:
“I’m about to depart.
“We don’t need the arrogance of the billionaire class to feel like they can just come in and solve everything.
“Even without him involved, I just find that it has become such a toxic environment.
“For my mental health, I need to tune out.
“I don’t feel good being there anymore.”
While earlier his role in scoring the hit movie about Facebook, “The Social Network,” Reznor said:
“I think the whole aspect of social networking is vulgar and repulsive in a lot of ways.
“But I also see why it’s appealing – I’ve had that little high you get from posting stuff online.
“But then you think, ‘Did I need to say that?’
“I’ve explored that enough to know to stay kind of quiet these days.”
Enter Elon Musk, who shredded Reznor with one line:
“And it turns out that Trent “nine inch nails” Reznor is actually a crybaby.”
48 hours since @elonmusk reinstated President Trump's Twitter account and the world still hasn't ended.

Reznor seems headed for the path of CBS News who had to eat crow after “pausing” Twitter to protest Musk.
“After pausing for much of the weekend to assess the security concerns, CBS News and Stations is resuming its activity on Twitter as we continue to monitor the situation.”
