Names and words are sometimes intentionally and satirically misspelled for a rhetorical purpose. This is often done by replacing a letter with another letter (for example, k replacing c), or symbol (for example, $ replacing s, @ replacing a, or ยข replacing c). This is found particularly in informal writing on the Internet, but can also be found in some serious political writing that opposes the status quo.
