For her act, the Canada based physician face a legal challenges and slandered with hefty legal fees. She was slapped with a staggering figures of CAD 300,000 (approximately USD 220k) in legal fees.

Fortunately, X has stepped forward to support her cause by pledging to cover her expenses.

Dr. Gill had openly opposed the Canadian and Ontario government’s COVID lockdown efforts of and vaccination on Twitter, for which she faced harassment from the legacy media, censorship from previous Twitter management and investigations by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario.

However, Musk recently learned about her crowdfunding campaign to pay the judgment.

The Tesla and Space X owner pledged to assist her.

“In support of your right to speak,” Musk posted.

X has now committed to funding the remainder of Dr. Gill’s campaign, allowing her to cover the hefty $300,000 judgment and her legal bills.

The legal proceedings have taken a toll on Dr. Gill’s financial stability, depleting her life savings and leaving her burdened with substantial debt.
