Twitter erupted in an uproar on Friday when Elon Musk finally removed all legacy verified accounts with the blue check mark, but allowed some celebrities to keep it.
In India, one has to pay Rs 900 per month (or Rs 9,400 per year) to get Blue Verified status.
As more than 4 million legacy verified users say goodbye to the blue check mark, some celebrities have been offered complimentary Twitter Blue memberships “on behalf of Musk.”
“I’m personally paying for something,” Musk said. “Just William Shatner, LeBron James and Stephen King,” he said.
Stephen King tweeted: “My Twitter account says I subscribed to Twitter Blue. I haven’t. My Twitter account says I’ve given a phone number. I haven’t”.
Musk replied: “You’re welcome. Namaste.”
The Pope was demoted along with Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian and Oprah Winfrey.
Rihanna and Taylor Swift still had blue ticks but not sure whether they bought it or Musk let them.
Actress Halle Berry tweeted, “I’m unverified with you all tomorrow.” She indicated that she is not going to pay Musk for the Blue Badge.
Several other NBA players, such as Stephen Curry, Zion Williamson, and Ja Morant, also lost their blue checks.
