Till then, MUSO’s actions are done on behalf of Sony, as Sony contracted them to be done, so Sony will be blamed for them.

If you’re right of center or if Silicon Valley believes you are of such political orientation then you are well aware of the various shenanigans social media pulls. When you are not being threatened with outright being no-platformed you are keenly aware your unrealistically small or diminishing number of interactions indicate you have been put in a limited state.
