LOL: Stephen King's blue check is now funded by Elon Musk in epic troll

We already reported to you that Elon Musk finally pulled the plug on the legacy verified blue checks and many of them completely wigged out. We also told you that Stephen King, who complained about the idea of having to pay for his blue check, still had his after the Great Blue Check Purge of 2023.


We suggested it was going to be fun because either Stephen King was dutifully paying his $8 per month for his blue check, or Musk was trolling him by paying for it himself.

Well, you don’t have to wait in suspense any longer!

Stephen King was adamant that he hadn’t committed the cardinal sin of forking over $8 to billionaire, Elon Musk.

The accusations that King was paying the $8 subscription fee were mounting rapidly when Musk jetted into his replies to clear things up.

‘Namaste’. LOL.

We like it, but the tag has to read ‘This celebrity is verified through the Celebrity Blue Check Welfare program’.

LOLOLOL! Even better.

‘For the price of just a cup of coffee every month in Joe Biden’s America, you can help an impoverished celebrity like, Stephen King here, to maintain his life-giving Twitter blue check.’


We like the sentiment, but the claim that Elon hasn’t done much right since becoming Chief Twit depends on your definition of ‘right’. The entertainment value is off the charts.

Also, ‘kind of funny’? It’s friggin’ hilarious!

Why would he do this?! Aren’t they millionaires?

According to Musk, it’s only three accounts, all of whom complained very publicly about losing their blue checks.

People on the Right were perplexed.

People on the Left immediately saw some nefarious business-based scheme whereby Musk would trick the rubes into signing up for Twitter Blue.

Allow us to clear this one up for you:



That’s why he did it. To amuse himself … and those who enjoy his sense of humor (raising our hands slowly).

He walked in the first day carrying a sink to make a pun.

If you send an email to Twitter’s press office you get an auto-reply with the poop emoji.

He changed the Twitter logo to the DOGE dog for days.

If you’re perplexed by Musk’s motivations at this point, you’re just not paying attention.

This guy gets it.

Exactly, that’s a core part of the troll. Let’s make some predictions:

Shatner will be grateful.

Stephen King will want the blue check removed because it’s the new mark of the beast to his left wing buddies.

LeBron could go the Stephen King route, but is the most likely of the three to completely ignore the whole thing. Or … he might ask if China can fund his blue check instead of Elon Musk. LOL.


Speaking of predictions, Ben Dreyfuss came close.

LOL. Right?! Stephen King got immediate negative feedback for apparently paying Elon Musk and responded predictably.

We’re gonna leave you with this one because we laughed out loud. Dude literally said ‘you’re pathetic’ after filming THAT. LOL!


Bye bye blue checks! Elon Musk pulled the plug on legacy blue checks and the libs are SALTY! LOL!
