Some Internet users have protested the label that has gone viral, alluding to the fact that Cubans do not want to be free but rather to change hands.
However, a user makes it clear, the objective of the trend.
“Of course Elon is not going to buy Cuba. It is about the owner of Twitter finding out that there is a dictatorship in Cuba, and speaking out. Which would give our cause the greatest visibility ever seen.”
