New Twitter owner Elon Musk said he spoke with a Latino civil rights organization, but that group said he met with someone who was "unlawfully" representing them.

David Cruz, a spokesperson for the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), said in an NBC News report that Sindy Benavides, who attended the Zoom meeting with Musk last Tuesday, "had no right to be there."

According to NBC News, Cruz called Benavides a "rogue, former respected leader who has decided to place herself above the organization that trusted her."

Benavides used to be LULAC's CEO until her termination on Oct. 22. But she still identifies herself as the organization's leader, insisting that the court would be the one to settle the organization's dispute.

CNBC said the Zoom call with Musk lasted for almost an hour and was attended by different organizations, including the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, leaders of the Anti-Defamation League, Asian American Foundation, Color of Change and Free Press.

Musk said in a tweet that he initiated the meeting to discuss "how Twitter will continue to combat hate & harassment & enforce its election integrity policies."

Musk added in another tweet, "Twitter will not allow anyone who was de-platformed for violating Twitter rules back on the platform until a clear process is done, which will take at least a few more weeks."

Twitter's new CEO and Tesla billionaire also tweeted, "Twitter's content moderation council will include representatives with widely divergent views, which will certainly include the civil rights community and groups who face hate-fueled violence."
