Kathy Griffin Claps Back After Elon Musk Suspends Her Twitter Account

On Sunday, Twitter CEO Elon Musk got his feelings hurt by comedian Kathy Griffin, so he suspended her account despite his claims of restoring free speech on the social media platform he purchased for $44 billion 10 days ago.

NBC News reports that Griffin dared to mock Musk, which led him to take the action.

Comedian Kathy Griffin’s Twitter account was suspended Sunday, the same day she changed her page’s title to “Elon Musk” and mocked the new CEO.

It wasn’t clear whether the suspension was permanent or a direct result of her mockery. It came as Musk announced that accounts that impersonate celebrities and other notables would be prohibited unless they’re labeled “parody.”

Others were also booted from the site for impersonating.

Griffin, however, got the last work on Musk’s suspension of her account in a novel way, according to HuffPost.

She then resurrected her deceased mother’s account to proclaim “Free Kathy” and trigger a war of words with the world’s richest man.

On her late mother’s account, Griffin went after Musk, verbally eviscerating him and his new “policy” of suspending all accounts that impersonate others but fail to carry a warning that they’re “parody.”

Musk attempted to fight back, but his response was tepid at best.

But Griffin had the perfect retort.

Musk later tweeted that Griffin could have her account back, but she’d have to pay $8 a month. It remains to be seen if anyone on the face of the planet will go along Musk’s attempt to extort money from Twitter users.
