This idiot is still playing the victim card even after rescinding her so-called “apology” after her career-ending video of her holding a decapitated head of the president. It’s not as if she had much of a career before then, but the whining is becoming a bit much now.
To hear Kathy Griffin tell her tale of 2017 is to learn that it’s possible for one joke to derail a career. Back in May, pics from a photoshoot depicting the comedian holding a makeshift decapitated head of President Donald Trump caused a massive controversy. Trump called the photos “sick” and Griffin apologized. The story didn’t end there, though, and as Griffin has revealed on her Facebook page, the fallout from that one photoshoot continues to unfold almost five months later.
In a Facebook post, Griffin claims that she has been blacklisted following the events of this past spring. “If you’ve ever wondered what blacklisting in any industry looks like, especially if you’re a woman of a certain age, I’ll show you right now,” she begins, before launching into her account of an invite to deliver the opening remarks at this December’s The Hollywood Reporter Power 100 Women in Entertainment breakfast–and the subsequent rescinding of that invite.
Griffin doesn’t hold back when it comes to analyzing this turn of events. “I do not buy their official reasoning and I believe ‘the word has been put out’ on me,” writes Griffin. “I can’t help but take this as another occasion where Hollywood is blacklisting a woman and silencing her. After decades of hard work in this industry, it’s my opinion that this is not right nor justified. Yeah, I took one photo holding up a children’s Halloween Trump mask with ketchup on it…so what? How’s that feigned outrage working out for you now in light of a possible impending nuclear holocaust?”
Feigned outrage. OK. Meanwhile, in an informal poll, 98.7% of Americans said they preferred a nuclear holocaust to having to listen to Griffin for another minute.
