Kathy Griffin received widespread condemnation in 2017 after the left-wing comedian tweeted out a picture of herself holding a bloody head that was made to look like President Donald Trump.
While Griffin later complained that the incident left her “unemployable,” it hasn’t stopped her from saying offensive things.
The Blaze reported that Griffin reacted to the news on Monday that Elon Musk had purchased Twitter by smearing the billionaire as a vengeful racist.
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.

“Musk is a Piers Morgan level media thirsty, vindictive, white supremacist who is looking to convince you he is an innovative disruptor,” she wrote.
Griffin also referenced the common belief among many leftists that Facebook is a major source of disinformation, writing, “Think of the damage Zuckerberg has done.”
For his part, Piers Morgan responded by saying, “I don’t think @elonmusk 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.”
The sale of Twitter has led to widespread alarm among many leftists, some of whom are employed at the company.
Politico reported that attorney and high-level executive Vijaya Gadde broke down in tears during a meeting about the new direction that Musk is expected to take Twitter in.
“Gadde cried during the meeting as she expressed concerns about how the company could change, according to three people familiar with the meeting,” the report read.
Musk himself addressed the uproar in a series of tweets on Tuesday, declaring, “The extreme antibody reaction from those who fear free speech says it all.”
“By ‘free speech,’ I simply mean that which matches the law,” he explained. “I am against censorship that goes far beyond the law. If people want less free speech, they will ask government to pass laws to that effect. Therefore, going beyond the law is contrary to the will of the people.”
