A second Twitter senior executive working on content and safety issues is no longer at the company after there were internal attempts by some to stop The Daily Wire’s “What Is A Woman?” documentary from being streamed on the platform while Twitter owner Elon Musk was traveling outside the U.S. on business.

The Wall Street Journal reported that A.J. Brown, Twitter’s head of brand safety and ad quality, is no longer at the company. Ella Irwin, the head of Twitter’s trust and safety department, abruptly resigned from the company Thursday afternoon.

Both of their exits were related to what unfolded with Twitter’s attempts to stop The Daily Wire from streaming the documentary on Thursday evening. Musk confirmed this on Twitter.

The Daily Wire posted the groundbreaking 90-minute documentary starring Matt Walsh on Twitter, where it could be viewed for free for 24 hours, at 8 p.m. EST Thursday night to mark the one-year anniversary of its release and continue to drive the conversation about the radical transgender craze. But Twitter labeled the documentary as “hateful conduct” and restricted its visibility because of two instances of supposed “misgendering.” A few hours before its release, Musk took to Twitter to insist that it had been a mistake, yet the film was saddled with restrictions when it aired.

Early Friday, Musk intervened and removed the restrictions on the video, allowing Twitter users to like and retweet the documentary, and Musk tweeted out the film to his 140 million followers.

The Daily Wire tweet that featured the film has been viewed 80 million times in less than 24 hours, after the boost from Musk, who has the most powerful account on the platform.
