"Not tolerated on this platform," Musk said.

Twitter CEO Elon Musk took immediate action on Tuesday and suspended the account of an individual that had created a customized "pedophile flag" in honor of Alice Day, an unofficial public "pedophile pride day" that occurs each year on April 25.

"Not tolerated on this platform," Musk said, in response to an account that praised Twitter for the suspension.

On Tuesday, the Twitter account @zeebdemon posted images of the customized flag that they had reportedly made a year ago and made the decision to share it on the social media platform.

"Happy Alice Day, to those who celebrate," the user wrote. "I figured, why not use today to unveil the YAP (Youth Attracted People) pride flag I designed almost a year ago?"

"I wanted to stray from the oft used horizontal bars motif, but only a little. I wanted to retain some familiarity," @zeebdemon wrote, describing the custom flag consisting of different shades of blue, pink, yellow, and white, layed out in diagonal stripes.

While it's unclear how long the post remained available on Twitter which was made at 2:52 am on Tuesday, the post was no longer visible after the account was suspended later in the evening.

"Elon Musk suspended the person who made a pedophilia flag. Well done, Elon," Dr. Anastasia Maria Loupis wrote on Twitter, which has since gone viral.

Musk responded to that tweet and said, "Not tolerated on this platform."

People took to the social media platform to praise the new CEO's swift action.

"Thank you. I was temporarily suspended by old Twitter for simply saying that child raping pedophiles should face the death penalty after being proven guilty. Big change under your ownership. Now pedophiles are no longer protected by Twitter! Keep it up," said former congressional candidate and filmmaker Robby Starbuck.

"Thank you @elonmusk for standing up against sexual predators and for protecting our CHILDREN," another user wrote.

Other users slammed the previous administration and wrote, "Parag Agarwal and Vijaya Gadde would have probably *Celebrated* this. Also, suspend those who raised an issue with it."

The former executives that ran Twitter faced immense backlash for allowing child pornography/abuse content to circulate on the social media platform without reprecussions.

Musk took issue with this and made combatting child pornography one of his top priorities after purchasing the social media platform for $44 billion in August of 2022.
