Overview

Elon Musk Reinstates Dom Lucre Controversy, also known as Elon Musk Unsuspends CSAM Poster, refers to a controversial incident regarding the dissemination of child sexual abuse material (CSAM) content on Twitter in late July 2023. Conservative commentator Dom Lucre (@dom_lucre) allegedly posted a screenshot of a CSAM film to his Twitter on July 22nd, 2023, and faced a temporary suspension for violating Twitter's rules against child sexual exploitation. Days later, Lucre's account was reinstated after Elon Musk acknowledged the reason for his suspension, leading many to question the legality and ethicality of allowing an account that shares CSAM content to stay online. Lucre subsequently denied sharing the CSAM photos, insisting that he only shared a link to a news article, despite evidence proving otherwise. The subreddit /r/law banned links and embeds that lead to Twitter following the controversy as many others voiced opposition to the decision online.

Background

On July 22nd, 2023, Twitter user @dom_lucre posted a series of tweets describing child sexual abuse material (CSAM) that was created by Peter Gerard Scully, an Australian sex offender, and pedophile currently serving a life imprisonment sentence and an additional 129 years in prison for numerous crimes against minors in the Philippines. Dom Lucre posted a summary of the case alongside a screenshot from a snuff film called Daisy's Destruction, which was made and distributed by Scully.[5]

Dom Lucre's post describing Scully's case and the snuff film received an unknown number of views before it was deleted for violating Twitter's rules against posting child sexual exploitation (CSE) content. [1] However, the tweet was up online for at least four days and viewed by an unknown number of Lucre's 500,000 followers and other Twitter users (seen below).

On July 26th, Dom Lucre's account was then banned, leading various Twitter users to comment on the supposed censorship his account was facing. For example, Twitter users @KariLake[2] and @EdKrassen[3] posted about Lucre's suspension, with Elon Musk replying[4] to the latter by detailing the reasons for Lucre's suspension. Musk added that "only people on our CSE team have seen those pictures," though the various replies to the tweet refuted this claim.


Elon Musk X @elonmusk Subscribed The reason for suspension should be shown, along with ability to appeal quickly and easily. There are so many layers of software (20+ million lines) that this is much harder than it should be. I'm told that this account was suspended for posting child exploitation pictures associated with the criminal conviction of an Australian man in the Philippines. cnn.com/2022/11/10/asi... 1:02 PM Jul 26, 2023 · 1.4M Views 431 Retweets 332 Quotes 3,275 Likes 177 Bookmarks X Subscribe Elon Musk X @elonmusk Subscribed 10.9K Retweets 688 Quotes 22.8K Likes 168 Bookmarks Subscribe Only people on our CSE team have seen those pictures.

Developments

Dom Lucre Denies Allegations

Dom Lucre denied posting CSAM content after his account was reinstated on July 27th, 2023. That same day, Lucre posted a tweet[6] sharing a screenshot of the violation he received from Twitter, asking, "If I shared CHILD PORN WHERE THE FUCK IS THE PORN? A news article link like YOU SHARED?" The post gathered over 17,000 likes in a day (seen below, left). Also on July 27th, Lucre shared screenshots of an interaction he had with a reporter who covered the story, pointing to a different tweet dated July 27th (instead of the July 22nd CSE violation) in an effort to deny having shared CSAM content (seen below, right).[7]

Online Reactions

On July 26th, 2023, Twitter[8] user @faineg posted a tweet showing various replies to Lucre's tweet containing CSE, which confirms that, contrary to Lucre's claims, Lucre did in fact post CSAM content. The replies[9][10] also prove that, contrary to Musk's claims, Twitter users outside the censorship team viewed the CSAM content.


On July 27th, Twitter[11] user @WhackNicholson posted a tweet questioning the legality of Musk's move to reinstate Lucre's account, gathering over 40,000 likes in a day (seen below, left). On July 27th, Twitter[12] user @JUNlPER posted a tweet regarding the issue as well, gathering over 75,000 likes in a day (seen below, right).

On July 27th, 2023, moderators of the subreddit /r/law[13] announced a new rule banning links to Twitter in the forum, citing the recent controversy surrounding Lucre's sharing of CSAM content. The post gathered over 1,000 upvotes in a day (seen below).


1024 M Twitter Ban (self.law) submitted 19 hours ago * (last edited 19 hours ago) by oscar_the_couch [M] announcement Hey everyone, Since Musk took control of Twitter, he mostly eliminated the Trust and Safety group and stopped paying the vendor that scans for CSAM. As a result, CSAM (child sexual abuse material) has apparently been circulating on Twitter recently (from what I've read elsewhere, the same notorious video that the feds found on Josh Duggar's hard drive). Musk also recently reinstated the account of someone who posted CSAM content. As a result, we'll be removing any content here that leads to Twitter, or, as he now calls it, X. Whether it's an embed link or a direct link to a tweet. Don't care what outlet is doing it. If you're a reporter or editor, stop embedding links to Twitter in any of your content. DO NOT: Under any circumstances post any link that leads directly to CSAM. We will ban you immediately and report you to the admins. If it looks like you broke the law-which borders on strict liability for this stuff-we will do everything in our power to report you to the feds and send you to jail.
