Elon Musk has drawn brands' attention to a Wall Street Journal news report that highlighted brand advertisements appearing alongside questionable Instagram Reels, including 'Overtly Sexual Adult Videos,' targeting teens and others.

Sharing a post on X (Formerly known as Twitter) he wrote, “What say you, big brands?”

The Wall Street Journal conducted tests to gauge what Instagram's Reels algorithm would suggest to accounts for young gymnasts, cheerleaders and teen influencers. Instagram suggested footage involving children and highly explicit adult videos, interwoven with advertisements from major US brands.

Following the post, several users started questioning brands about their lack of outrage against Meta for this.

One user also said that advertisers don’t mind their ads being placed beside explicit content, “They just oppose normal people posting political opinions and memes they find offensive.”

Another user said that advertisers will definitely pull their ads any minute now.

Recently, several companies like Apple, Oracle, NBCUniversal’s Bravo network, Comcast, Disney, and IBM, withdrew their ads from X due to reports of Elon Musk’s ‘abhorrent’ promotion of antisemitism and racist hate.
