It appears that “comedienne” Kathy Griffin is still wrecked after taking flack for her “joke” of beheading President Donald Trump. It was a joke that killed her career last year.
The bitter “comedienne” (who was never funny, really) made news again after appearing at the Writers Guild Awards last weekend. Griffin was supposed to be presenting an award to the writers for their job well done, but instead she used her time on stage to rant and rave.
After she took the podium, Griffin began snarking, “It’s me, Kathy Griffin — I got a haircut and I lost my career in a day, hi!” IndiWire.com reported.
She immediately began slamming the writers themselves — as if they could have done anything to help her when she was having her, uh, troubles.
Griffin gave a back handed “thanks” to the writers for offering “f**king no support” for her during the backlash over her failed presidential assassination joke.
The hate-filled woman ranted onward slamming the writers by bitterly asking, “Where the f**k have you been? … I was supposed to thank everyone for their support, and no one lifted their finger.”
She went on:
Griffin offered her personal backlash — following a career of “little fights [that] nobody gives a shit about” — as a cautionary tale. “I want you to learn from my experience, honestly: if you think it can’t happen to you, it can, and it can happen like that,” she said, snapping her fingers. “You may have hated that photo and that’s okay, but if one of your 12-year-old kids puts it on Twitter, they shouldn’t have to be under a two-month federal investigation, be on the No Fly List, and the Interpol list.”
She voiced her additional frustration that she was never able to count herself among the guild’s 9,081 members, despite being the Guinness World Record-holding comedian for recording the most specials, 23: “I’ve been writing for shitty, low-budget cable my whole career, because as you know, when you try to get on a union show, the network says no. And when you’re a woman and you’re 57, they say no and then they call the White House, and then they call the Department of Justice, it’s a whole thing.”
Man. Talk about a wet blanket on the festivities. I’d have hated to get the award SHE was supposed to be handing out.
How do you come up on stage to happily accept an award after that bitter mess introduced you?
