Keith Olbermann Dogs: Latest News: Olbermann called Elon Musk, who was born in South Africa, “apartheid Clyde” on the account of his dogs.
People on Twitter laughed and were a little worried when former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann started tweeting from his dogs’ account because Twitter CEO Elon Musk had temporarily banned Olbermann’s main account.
The former journalist posted a video of himself reacting to the news of his suspension on an account called “Keith Olbermann’s Dogs.” He said, “Hey, I don’t know if this made any news, but it looks like Elon Musk has permanently banned me from Twitter for not doing something he said he would never ban anyone for.”
Twitter users made fun of Olbermann after he was forced to post from his dog’s account:
Musk shut down a few accounts Thursday night that he said were trying to “dox,” or reveal, his real-world location. He said this was against Twitter’s new terms of service. CNN reporter Donie O’Sullivan, former Vox reporter Aaron Rupar, and New York Times reporter Ryan Mac were all suspended because of this.
Musk said on Twitter that these people “posted my exact real-time location, which is essentially assassination coordinates, in clear violation of Twitter’s terms of service.”
Though, in later tweets, the new owner of Twitter made it clear that these suspensions were only temporary and weren’t meant to last longer than “7 days.”
Olbermann attacked Musk based on what his dogs said. He said, “What a friggin’ candy a**, lying, hypocritical, self-contradictory, little paranoid snowflake that apartheid Clyde really is.”
He then compared the group suspension to a famous scene from “The Godfather,” saying, “It’s the baptism scene from ‘The Godfather,’ and we all got whacked by Don Elon Muskleone.”
