(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) Kathy Griffin, an alleged comedian best known for posing with a model of President Trump’s decapitated head, has been banned from Twitter and is tweeting under her dead mother’s account.
Yesterday, Elon Musk, the new boss at Twitter, tweeted, “Going forward, any Twitter handles engaging in impersonation without clearly specifying “parody” will be permanently suspended.” He replied to that tweet, clarifying that these suspensions will be immediate,” there will be no warning,” he wrote.
The last post on Griffin’s now-suspended account read, “Elon just locked my Twitter acct. I guess not ALL the content moderators were let go? Lol.”
She replied to this tweet, “I am wreaking a little havoc on Twitter right now. I’m feeling quite smug.”
Griffin then logged on to her dead mother’s Twitter account to start a hashtag about herself. “Apologize in advance for all the comments you’re gonna have to read about how ugly I am and they’re probably gonna throw you in there too. Oh by the way this is KG. I’m tweeting from my dead mother’s account. She would not mind. #FreeKathy“
This is precisely the strange and erratic behavior one would expect from a woman who threatened the President of The United States, twice. Griffin also threatened a civil war if Republicans won an election.
Regardless of her unbalanced behavior, Elon got the last laugh. He tweeted, “actually, she [Griffin] was suspended for impersonating a comedian.”
After roasting Griffin, Musk got in one last jab. He tweeted that, “if she really wants her account back, she can have it,” then replied to his own tweet, “for $8.”
The new era of Twitter is funny, if it’s nothing else.
