New York, NY – Twitter has suspended Joe Biden for impersonating the President of the United States in an attempt to crack down on parody accounts.
Musk tweeted that, “Going forward, any Twitter handles engaging in impersonation without clearly specifying ‘parody’ will be permanently suspended.” He added, “I’m not sure who the president is. But it ain’t Joe Biden.”
This crackdown comes on the heels of Twitter suspending other celebrities, such as Kathy Griffin, for not only impersonating Musk but also impersonating a celebrity.
Twitter also released a list of other verified blue checkmark users who will be suspended for acting like something they’re not, which includes: James Cordon for impersonating a comedian, Rachel Levine for impersonating a man, Mark Zuckerberg for impersonating a human being and Taco Bell for impersonating Mexican food.
