Daily Wire Editor Emeritus Ben Shapiro announced he will co-host an X Space, interviewing Tesla and X owner Elon Musk on Thursday at noon EST. The announcement comes on the heels of Musk’s clash with the leftist Anti-Defamation League (ADL). 

Earlier this month, the ADL claimed that Musk’s social media platform, X, which he says is dedicated to free speech, is failing to stop anti-Semitism from spreading. Musk countered by threatening the ADL with a defamation lawsuit, blaming the self-identified “human rights organization” for lost revenue. 

Shapiro defended the X owner, saying “he’s right” about the ADL’s “really ugly” tactics of trying to get advertisers to remove their revenue from the platform, comparing their chilling effect on free speech and journalism to that of GARM, the “Global Alliance for Responsible Media.” 

The Daily Wire host said the ADL “proclaims that it is speaking in the name of Jewish causes. That is untrue. It is just a progressive interest group” that has “made excuses for some of the world’s worst anti-Semites in Congress so long as they are Democrats.”

Musk said the attacks from the ADL against his platform could “potentially” destroy “half the value of the company, so roughly $22 billion.” 

“To clear our platform’s name on the matter of anti-Semitism, it looks like we have no choice but to file a defamation lawsuit against the Anti-Defamation League … oh the irony!” Musk posted.

The billionaire X owner met with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Monday, and the Israeli leader asked Musk to “roll back” anti-Semitism on the social media platform, saying he hopes Musk can “find, within the confines of the First Amendment, the ability to stop not only anti-Semitism, or roll it back as best you can, but any collective hatred of people.” 

Musk responded, telling Netanyahu, “Obviously, I’m against anti-Semitism. I’m anti- really anything that is, you know, that promotes hate and conflict. And I’m in favor of that which helps society and takes us to a better future for humanity collectively.”


Following Shapiro’s interview with Musk, the pair will stay on the X Space for a panel discussion with Jewish leaders hosted by podcaster and CEO of Bnai Zion, Rabbi Dr. Ari Lamm. 

Those joining the panel discussion include Chair of the Advisory Board of the Combat Antisemitism Movement Natan Sharansky, Associate Dean and Director of Global Social Action Agenda for the Simon Wiesenthal Center Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Chairman of the European Jewish Association Rabbi Menachem Margolin, former President of Israel Rubi Rivlin, and Rabbi Manis Friedman, “the most popular rabbi on YouTube.”
