Following the news that leftist Kathy Griffin has been banned from Twitter, Elon Musk responded to a tweet from journalist Benny Johnson where he shared a screenshot of Griffin’s permanently suspended account.
In response, Musk told Johnson, “Actually, she was suspended for impersonating a comedian.”
Musk then suggested that perhaps the ban wouldn’t be permanent after all as he continued in a reply to his own tweet, “But if she really wants her account back, she can have it.”
In a follow-up to that tweet, Musk added what has become a signature catch-phrase of sorts, “For $8.”

Johnson has also shared screenshots from the social media platform Mastodon, which Griffin has apparently joined.
In one post, Griffin said that she was “wreaking a little havoc on Twitter right now. I’m feeling quite smug.”
Griffin then followed that up by reporting that “Elon locked my Twitter [account]. I guess not ALL the content moderators were let go? Lol.”
In another screenshot that was shared by Johnson in a reply, Griffin claimed that Musk was “melting down” because of her and Valerie Bertinelli.
Bertinelli apparently began the trend by changing her user name to Elon Musk.
