Kathy Griffin Defies Elon Musk’s Twitter “Rules” By Using Late Mother’s Account After Suspension

Posted November 7, 2022 by with 2 comments

While several verified accounts with blue checks were suspended over the weekend for changing their handles to “Elon Musk” and mocking the thin-skinned idiot who just flushed $44 billion down the toilet, Kathy Griffin was the most high profile suspension. She’s since logged into her late mother’s Twitter account to continue poking at Musk, while encouraging followers to vote for Democrats in tomorrow’s election. Via Variety:

Kathy Griffin logged into her late mother’s Twitter account to continue trolling Elon Musk after he banned her main account for impersonating him. Griffin changed her original Twitter name to “Elon Musk,” which ended up getting her thrown off the social media platform. Musk followed up Griffin’s ban by announcing, “Going forward, any Twitter handles engaging in impersonation without clearly specifying ‘parody’ will be permanently suspended.”

Griffin took matters into her own hands and returned to Twitter using the account of late mother, Maggie Griffin.

Musk made a wisecrack that Griffin got suspended from Twitter for “impersonating a comedian,” to which she replied, “I mean…you stole that joke, you asshole. People have been posting that joke for hours, you hack. Look, please do a better job running this company. It used to mean something.”


As of post time, Griffin was still using the “TipItMaggieG” account (which she changed so the profile name reads as Elon Musk), while Musk was telling his brain dead fans to vote for Republicans.
