Comic Kathy Griffin Twitter account suspended for ‘rule violation’

Kathy Griffin has been suspended from Twitter.

The 62-year-old comic’s account on the platform, @kathygriffin, has been taken down after she “violated the rules” of the social media app by changing her screen name to that of new Twitter owner Elon Musk.

The message users receive when visiting her page states: “Account suspended

“Twitter suspends accounts that violate the Twitter rules.”

During her stint with her fake name, Griffin urged users to #VoteBlue and also look at Twitter competitor Mastodon.

One of her tweets under the name change read: “After much spirited discussion with the females in my life, I’ve decided that voting blue for their choice is only right. (They’re also sexy females, btw.) #VoteBlueToProtectWomen (sic).”

And it’s unclear if Griffin will be back on the platform because Musk later issued a warning that those attempting to impersonate him, or others, without making it obvious their accounts are spoofs face being “permanently suspended.”

In addition, those with verified account will lose their checkmark if they change their names in any way.

He continued: “Any name change at all will cause temporary loss of verified checkmark.”

Griffin admitted her name-change gag had sparked a backlash and thanked her friends for visiting to check she was OK.
