Martina Navratilova had earlier slammed Elon Musk

She had previously slammed the billionaire when he announced that the users who want to keep their blue checkmark, will need to play a monthly sum of $8.

“I didn’t ask for the blue check mark- it just showed up one day, so feel free to take it away. My peeps know it’s me,” she tweeted.

A couple of months ago, she protested that she is getting lots of feeds from right-wing political posts and blamed Musk for this.

“Why am I getting tweets on my feed from right wingers, Fox News etc?!? I didn’t want that on my feed. Never happened until Musk took over, WTAF?!?,” Navratilova had said.

She then added that she had never communicated with those posts related to right-wing politics. Despite that, she is getting those posts on her feed.

Meanwhile, Navratilova retired from professional tennis in 2006, but not before winning over 50 titles throughout her career. Also Read: Carlos Alcaraz Vs Alejandro Davidovich Fokina Match Prediction, Head-To-Head, Preview, And Live Stream | Barcelona Open
