Comedian Kathy Griffin has responded to Elon Musk after he reinstated her Twitter account and misspelt her name.

“Kathie Griffin, Jorden Peterson & Babylon Bee have been reinstated,” the tech billionaire wrote.

Earlier this month, Griffin was suspended for challenging the site’s policy against impersonation by changing her profile name to “Elon Musk” without making clear it was parody.

The Space X boss confirmed the suspension with a savage roast

“Actually, she was suspended for impersonating a comedian,” he wrote in reply to someone sharing the news.

“But if she really wants her account back, she can have it … For $8,” he said in a pair of tweets referring to his new monthly fee for users who want the blue tick verifying their accounts.

The world’s richest man also replied with a laughing emoji when another Twitter user pretending to be Griffin — clearly marked “PARODY,” as per Twitter’s rules — quipped: “This is the first time I’ve made anyone laugh.”

The real Griffin, snuck back onto Twitter by taking over the account of her late mum, Maggie Griffin, who died at age 99 in March 2020.

The entertainer posted a series of angry responses to her suspension, calling Musk an “a – hole” for joking that she’d been “suspended for impersonating a comedian.”

“I mean… you stole that joke, you a – hole. People have been posting that joke for hours, you hack,” she wrote.

“Look, please do a better job running this company. It used to mean something. This is KG btw.”

Griffin repeatedly used the hashtag #FreeKathy — just for others to reply with #pleasefreeusfromKathy.

Broadcaster Piers Morgan slammed the star’s move, describing her behaviour as “despicable”.
