Earlier today I published the article BuzzFeed News And Twitter Blues. I mention a list of Famous Twitter users who received a blue check from Elon Musk and publicly denounced it. Here’s a longer list, with citations of Tweets.

These are in no order, and the links are to the Internet Archive or with the exception of LeBron James. Some screenshots do not display the blue checkmark, due to name changes. This list doesn’t include the dead celebrities Twitter claims subscribed to Twitter Blue.
