Kathy Griffin Suspended by Twitter After Impersonating Elon Musk

The Elon Musk takeover of Twitter has certainly been a rather turbulent one, as the social media giant continues to shed both employees and users.

Musk, who has suggested that the platform is losing $4 million per day, has been taking a hands-on approach to managing the company by slashing the workforce nearly in half, and down some rather peculiar lines.

And, in a rather bold maneuver this week, the social media network appeared to suspend the account of notorious liberal comedian Kathy Griffin.

Kathy Griffin was the latest casualty in Elon Musk’s Twitter takeover as the comedian’s account was suspended Sunday.

Griffin, 62, changed her profile name to Musk, and appeared to be promptly banned from the social media site.

Despite her handle showing her own @kathygriffin name, the moniker by her blue checkmark said “Elon Musk” — which goes against the company policy against impersonation.

Musk has been taking Twitter Blue much more seriously after the takeover.

“Going forward, any Twitter handles engaging in impersonation without clearly specifying ‘parody’ will be permanently suspended,” he wrote Sunday night.

“Previously, we issued a warning before suspension, but now that we are rolling out widespread verification, there will be no warning. This will be clearly identified as a condition for signing up to Twitter Blue.”

Griffin grew infamous during the early days of Donald Trump political career, after appearing in a gruesome photo shoot in which she was seen holding a photorealistic facsimile of Trump’s severed head.
