Controversial comedian Kathy Griffin took aim at Tesla CEO Elon Musk on his recently purchased social media platform on Monday.
“Think of the damage Zuckerberg has done. Musk is a Piers Morgan level media thirsty, vindictive, white supremacist who is looking to convince you he is an innovative disruptor,” she tweeted.
British broadcaster Piers Morgan, who sat down with former President Donald Trump in an interview that aired Monday, shot back at Griffin for the dig.
“I don’t think [Musk] should take vindictive lectures from someone who gleefully posed with a mocked-up model of a US President’s severed head, then played the pitiful victim card to get herself out of any accountability for such a vile stunt,” he shot back.
Griffin posted a photo of herself holding a bloody paper mache likeness of Trump’s severed head in 2017, which the former president called “vile and wrong” at the time. Her career tanked in the aftermath and she was fired from her annual gig hosting CNN’s New Year’s Eve show.
“This is because Piers asked me to be on his Fox nation web show and I said no, so…” She replied to Morgan’s tweet.
Griffin also charged at Musk directly after he tweeted about liberal Twitter’s hysterical reaction to his $44 billion purchase of the platform.
“The extreme antibody reaction from those who fear free speech says it all,” he wrote.
“That was quick,” she mocked on Tuesday.
Musk weighed in on Twitter’s decision to censor the New York Post over the Hunter Biden laptop story during the 2020 presidential election.
“Vijaya Gadde, the top censorship advocate at Twitter who famously gaslit the world on Joe Rogan’s podcast and censored the Hunter Biden laptop story, is very upset about the @elonmusk takeover,” political commentator Saagar Enjeti wrote.
“Suspending the Twitter account of a major news organization for publishing a truthful story was obviously incredibly inappropriate,” Musk commented.
