Account that posted ‘Lollipop Lagelu’ in Elon Musk’s name suspended

The Twitter account that parodied Elon Musk and entertained the social media platform, especially the Hindi audience, with a Bhojpuri song and Hindi tweets was eventually suspended. However, more and more clone accounts have popped up parodying Elon Musk – all poking fun in Elon Musk’s name and with their blue checkmark suggesting they are verified users.

The account Bhojpuri posted chartbuster Lollipop Lagelu belonged to an American-Australian Hindi professor, Ian Woolford, who teaches at La Trobe University in Melbourne. His tweets caused a ripple as most of those tweets were Hindi catchphrases. For a moment, Twitter users were shocked to think that Elon Musk was tweeting in Hindi, as he left no stone unturned to make his profile look exactly like Elon Musk’s. He even changed the bio to that of Elon Musk’s – Twitter Complaint Hotline Operator.

One of the tweets that went viral on Saturday.

Besides ‘Lollipop’, the account also tweeted, ‘Twitter tere tukde tukde honge’ etc. According to his profile on the university website, Ian Woolford leads the Hindi language program and teaches courses in South Asian culture. He is proficient in Hindi, Urdu, Sanskrit, Persian and can also understand Bhojpuri and Maithili.

The account was later suspended on Saturday.
