Kathy Griffin was suspended from Twitter but found a way to return to the digital platform by using her deceased mother’s account.

“Free Kathy,” was the hashtag that was tweeted under Maggie Griffin’s Twitter account which hadn’t been active since 2019 when the comedian was asking for help after being hacked on Instagram and Facebook.

Kathy Griffin was banned from Twitter after she changed her display name to Elon Musk, violating the terms of service surrounding impersonating someone.

In a follow-up tweet, Kathy replied to Musk after he said that “Going forward, any Twitter handles engaging in impersonation without clearly specifying ‘parody’ will be permanently suspended.”

The comedian then replied, “I’m back from the grave to say… #FreeKathy #TipIt.”


The My Life On the D-List alum would clarify that she was using her mom’s account as “she would not mind.”

“Apologize in advance for all the comments you’re gonna have to read about how ugly I am and they’re probably gonna throw you in there too. Oh by the way this is KG. I’m tweeting from my dead mother’s account,” Kathy tweeted.
