I’m watching the Creative Arts Emmy Awards. Kathy Griffin just received her award.
Here is the full speech that was aired:
Can you believe this [*bleep*]? I guess hell froze over. You know, a lot of people come up here and they thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus. He didn’t help me a bit. If it were up to him, Cesar Milan would be up here with his… dog now. So, all I can say is… this award is my God now!
That last line was edited.
She actually said, “So, all I can say is, ‘Suck it, Jesus.’ This award is my God now.”
The word “shit” was bleeped. But “Suck it, Jesus” was censored entirely.
Somehow, I just lost more respect for E!: Entertainment Television.
Here’s video of her speech, as seen through FOXNews:
FOXNews liked Lauren Green‘s piece, too. I know. I’m shocked as well.
