Hill & Knowlton employee who insulted Grace Dent blames ‘employer twitter censorship’ for firing

Hill & Knowlton graduate trainee Mufadal Jiwaji, who insulted the PR agency’s client Grace Dent on Twitter in April, has been fired.

The employee had tweeted ‘@gracedent reminds me of a girlfriend I once had. By girlfriend I mean that time I accidentally made love to an ugly abhorrent horse.’ following her appearance on Have I Got News For You.

According to the Telegraph, the agency, which confirmed Jiwaji has left, said that it was unconnected to Dent, who threatened to have him fired in April before tweeting saying they had both moved on.

However, Jiwaji’s Twitter feed tells a different story, with the 23 year old tweeting ‘Woke up this morning unfettered by the constraints of employer twitter censorship. Might sporadically swear for effect. ‪#Shit‬.’ yesterday.
