Kathy Griffin continues to mock Elon Musk on Twitter despite being banned from the app. How? Tweeted at Twitter’s new CEO from her dead mother’s account.

Griffin was kicked off the social media platform over the weekend for impersonating Musk, but maneuvered her way back online thanks to her mom Maggie. Maggie, a fan favorite My D List Life, died in 2020. Maggie’s Twitter account had been inactive since 2019 — until Sunday night. Kathy started tweeting from “TipItMaggieG” and has been relentlessly going after Musk for the past 24 hours.

“Elon, this is Maggie contacting you from the spirit world, tell you… you’re a wuss. This is not a parody. This is the real ghost of Kathy Griffin’s wine loving mother saying I’m going to be indifferent and throw my bingo cards at you! NO PARODY,” Griffin wrote on Monday.

Musk previously stated that “comedy is now legit” on Twitter since his $44 billion buyout, but the Tesla founder doesn’t find it funny when people make fun of him and impersonate him. Over the weekend, the entrepreneur said that “any Twitter handles that engage in impersonation without clearly identifying the ‘spoof’ will be permanently suspended.”

Griffin changed her photo and name to match Musk’s profile and was tweeting with him ahead of the midterm elections.

“After much heated discussion with the women in my life, I’ve decided that voting blue for their choice is only right. (They’re hot females too, btw.) #VoteBlueToProtectWomen!” Griffin wrote as “Mask”.

Sarah Silverman, Valerie Bertinelli and Angry men Alum Rich Sommer followed suit and changed their profiles to match Musk’s. As of Monday, Sommer’s account is still suspended, while Silverman is back operating as herself.

Some celebrities leave Twitter of their own accord. Whoopi Goldberg called Twitter “stupid” and said Monday The view is leaving the platform “today”.

“I just feel like — it’s so messy and I’m tired now, having blocked certain kinds of behaviors, and now they’re coming back. I’m going to go out and if it calms down and I feel more comfortable, maybe I’ll come back. But as of tonight, I’m done with Twitter,” Goldberg said.

Gigi Hadid announced on Instagram that she has deactivated her account as Musk cuts the Twitter workforce. The model wrote that Twitter is “increasingly becoming a cesspool of hate and bigotry,” adding, “especially with its new leadership.”

“I can’t say it’s a safe place for anyone, not a social platform that’s going to do more good than bad,” Hadid noted.

Toni Braxton, Shonda Rhimes and Sara Bareilles have also left the blue bird app.

As for Musk, he seems to be ignoring the #FreeKathy pleas. Instead, he is urging his nearly 115 million followers to vote “for a Republican Congress” in the midterm elections.
