First Lady of Brazil Takes Legal Action Against Elon Musk’s X: After having her account hacked last week, Rosangela “Janja” Lula da Silva, the first lady of Brazil, said on Tuesday that she will fight X, the social media site owned by Elon Musk that used to be called Twitter.
The accused hacker got into Janja’s account on December 11 and posted a number of messages, some of which were offensive to women, including threats to the first lady and President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.

“I still don’t know if I have to sue them in the U.S. or in Brazil, but I will sue them,” Janja said in a live broadcast alongside Lula.
She also asked Brazil to control social media sites, saying that they should be responsible for what their users do.
Lula agreed that social media should be regulated around the world, but he said that he was worried about how complicated the problem was.
At the same time, though, he was angry about the hacking. He said the event was important because it brought attention to a big problem in the world.
“It’s a challenge to know how we could deal with it without imposing censorship,” the leftist leader said.
“I know the European Union already did some regulation. We will have to watch very closely what the United States, what China are doing as well.”
