PayPal issued then retracted a policy to fine users $2,500 for “misinformation” after a flurry of criticism erupted on social media, including from Elon Musk and another one of the company’s former leaders.

The penalties posted on PayPal’s website would have been issued to users who “promote misinformation” or “present a risk to user safety or wellbeing,” according to the Daily Wire, which first reported the change on Friday.

The new policy was set to go into effect on Nov. 3, according to the report. But a company rep said the change was published “in error,” Yahoo News reported.

“An AUP notice recently went out in error that included incorrect information,” the statement said.
