Elon Musk permanently suspended Kathy Griffin from Twitter for impersonating him. The comedienne is among many celebrities and common folk who changed their Twitter usernames to “Elon Musk” to harass the new Twitter boss.

Griffin was banned on Sunday after Musk warned, “Going forward, any Twitter handles engaging in impersonation without clearly specifying parody will be permanently suspended.”
But even those who specified “parody” in their usernames were suspended. So that didn’t work out for them.
After Griffin was suspended, Musk tweeted, “Actually, she was suspended for impersonating a comedian.”
He then said Griffin can have her account back — if she pays $8 a month for the Twitter Blue service which comes with a verification checkmark and other perks.
The furious comedienne reactivated her dead mother’s Twitter account and used it to call Musk “a**hole” and “douchebag”.
Musk threatened to sue Griffin and other stars for “tortious interference” for persuading advertisers to pull their ads from Twitter.
Griffin responded, “Dear @elonmusk, and @TomFitton, oh please please bring a tortious interference claim against me. Send it to @BoutrousTed. He’ll accept service and everything. Thx!”
Liberals are melting down on Twitter now that the tables are turned. They cheered when conservatives were banned from Twitter for no reason.
