“I just want you guys to know I’m fully in the middle of a blacklist,” Kathy Griffin has been complaining to anyone who will listen.
You may remember that she posed with what looked like a decapitated head of our President Donald Trump and was absolutely shocked that pepel didn’t think it was as funny as she did. In fact, people thought it was disgusting.
“I am in the middle of a Hollywood blacklist. It is real. I am not booked on any talk shows. I’m selling tickets worldwide, which is really hard when you don’t have any sort of television platform, no one has your back, and everyone thinks you’re crazy. But a handful of people think I’m kind of onto something.”
I doubt she’s actually on any sort of “blacklist.” I bet she wasn’t working much when she posed with what looked like the bloody, severed head of the President of the United States anyway, right?
“I just want you guys to know. When I get home, I do not have one single day of paid work in front of me. And people who want me to go back and start in clubs and do ten minutes again… I don’t mean to be an asshole, but no. I’m not going to do that. I’ve worked way too hard to go back and work for free and do the club scene again. Because this is some bullshit. Because I’ve been blacklisted.”
Again with this “blacklist.” Here’s a thought. She’s supposed to be a comedian, right? But no one actually finds her funny. That’s definitely a problem for Griffin, but it’s not a problem for anyone else.
When Bill Maher invited her onto this show as some sort of career resuscitation, the interview — once again — wasn’t funny. In fact, IJR transcribed this portion of the video:
Maher asked Griffin, “If you had to do it all over again, I assume you wouldn’t take the picture?”
Griffin responded, “I’d do Mike Pence.” She then clarified, “I’m kidding, I’m kidding. Ten months I waited to do that joke, ten months!”
Seems like she’s really sorry.
