Actions have consequences and Kathy Griffin is finding that out the hard way.
After posting a photo of herself holding a severed, bloodied head meant to look like President Trump, she’s lost work and is having trouble finding new opportunities.
In what she calls a “state of the union” YouTube video, Griffin says she’s “getting a lot of online hate from trolls who think I’ve lost my mind.”
She admits as much to be true, joking that losing her mind is “what made me a star in the first place.”
“I’m fully in the middle of a blacklist, a Hollywood blacklist. It is real. I’m not booked on any talk shows. I’m selling tickets worldwide which is really hard when you don’t have any kind of a television platform and kind of nobody has your back,” the 57-year-old complained.
“I just want you guys to know that when I get home I don’t have one single day of paid work in front of me…my legal bills are through the roof…I still say the end goal is for younger women and younger LGBT folks or disenfranchised people of any kind can watch me survive, and with a sense of humor,” Griffin said.
The comedienne refuses to take smaller jobs as some people have suggested and said she believes she deserves her life back.
“This wall of crap has never fallen on any woman in the history of America like it’s fallen on me,” she claimed.
While she initially apologized for the photo, in August she walked that back saying she was “no longer sorry.”
“I am no longer sorry, the whole outrage was B.S, the whole thing got so blown out of proportion,” she said. “I lost everybody.”
