Kathy Griffin is my Hero

I love that she went scorched earth on the former usurper.

Can you imagine what he would have done with a second term? He was trying to sell out America to other countries and would have locked all the liberals into concentration camps.

Besides, it was just a gag. Talk about cancel culture. The republicans started it.

Hopefully the public has come around. A la Sinead O'Connor. Her only crime is that she was too ahead of her time.

Happy to hear that she is now cancer free.

Will Andy Cooper apologize.? He really threw her under the bus.

I love her and she has my full support.

There are several people, including Cohen and Copper, who owe her a major, public apology.

by Anonymousreply 9January 14, 2022 7:20 PM

Yes r9. They were defending Trump like he was some legitimate president that deserves respect?

Give me a break. This is not aged well for them. Trump was a monster and Kathy is one brave chick. She has balls of steel. They almost killed her.

I hope she gets her due respect.

She didn't deserve the vitriol directed toward her considering the violence they invite on a daily basis. I hope she is doing well.

Call me a woke swj but I just don't think killing people is funny.

by Anonymousreply 13January 14, 2022 7:26 PM

After all, it was a comedy video. For Cooper to be so offended is ridiculous. He is too uptight and has no sense of humor.

I think you have to do something pretty bad to have a career taken away. Save that for the truly evil.

Look at Jan 6th. That is some outrages violence. Not this silly video.

R14, It wasn’t a comedy video. She held up the mask in exchanger for a free photo shoot with Tyler Shields. She was an idiot and it was tacky.

by Anonymousreply 17January 14, 2022 7:29 PM

It was a joke. She is a comedian. Get over it.

If you are intent on being mad about something then look at all the Charlottesville violence and rethugs running over people with their cars.

Much worse than a silly joke.

by Anonymousreply 18January 14, 2022 7:32 PM

I never thought she should be cancelled over this whole stunt. It just wasn’t clever or funny. Neither is Ted Nugent calling Obama a mongrel or telling Hillary to suck on his machine gun. I hate Trump as much as the next gay liberal but not impressed with Kathy either. That said, the outrage against her was a bit overblown.

by Anonymousreply 19January 14, 2022 7:33 PM

R15 How was January 6 violent when only one person died and that was a woman murdered by police?

If Roseanne had held up a prop mean to symbolize Obama’s decapitated head yo all would have been outraged.

Hypocritical cunts

by Anonymousreply 23January 14, 2022 7:37 PM

OP, get a grip. She may have been cool is she stood her ground. Instead, she gave a pathetic press conference in which she cried about how they “broke her” and tried to make herself into a victim. It was a stupid move on her part and frankly it was fake. She got famous for saying mean shit. She got famous for being racist, agest, fatphobic and sexist in her comedy. And now, she is some how sanctimoniously against Trump for being mean?

by Anonymousreply 24January 14, 2022 7:38 PM

R21 How is what I said wrong? How was it violence? The media has told us that it is okay to loot and burn during a protest. Many BLM protest had federal building being burned. How is it different? Explain?

by Anonymousreply 25January 14, 2022 7:39 PM

She tried to play the innocent dupe regarding the photo. This from a woman whose comic persona was that of a smart woman! And her apology was fake. She certainly was aware of cancel culture so why act so surprised?

by Anonymousreply 26January 14, 2022 7:41 PM

R26 Kathy always plays the victim. This was clear enough on her show and how she treated Matt. She economically abused him and then left him when he tried to access shared funds.

by Anonymousreply 27January 14, 2022 7:45 PM

Kathy always tries and plays the victim. It is pathetic. I respect her for sticking it to Ellen when Joan died about her not giving the proper respect. But in almost every other conflict she has been in, she is shown herself to be unhinged, unhappy and narcissistic.

by Anonymousreply 28January 14, 2022 7:47 PM

Throw back to when Kathy tried to come for Don Cheadle and he put her in her place. He also used the phrase Die In A Grease Fire. Is he a DLer?

Didn't Griffin throw Guiliana Rancic under the bus for a comment Rancic made about patchouli and weed on Live from the Red Carpet effectively putting an end to the show? The bitch would throw her own mother under the bus!

Correction R20, a domestic terrorist attempting to interfere with the American government was handled in the only way she understood.

It was *far* more than "a bit", r19.

Griffin in response to Trump said, 'He broke me!' This one can't be blamed on Trump. Even Chelsea Clinton spoke out publicly against what Griffin did. She put herself in an indefensible position.

I’d rather see Kevin hart canceled for saying he would kill his son if he were gay. How is that ugly fucker getting so much work these days… oh right, it’s not only fine to shit on gays, it’s also HILARIOUS!

It really bothers me how TV shows use the word faggot all the time. Sometimes it’s even on shows that seem pro-gay and they probably think they’re doing good putting gay topics out there. I don’t think that word should ever be used on mainstream television. How is it different than a racial slur?

by Anonymousreply 34January 14, 2022 8:06 PM

R32 Her victim roleplaying was far more overblown

by Anonymousreply 35January 14, 2022 8:07 PM

Team Kathy. She never should have apologized. THAT was her major mistake.

R34 correction: It is fine to shit on gays if you are Black.

I’m with the other softhearted, or maybe superstitious, people in this thread who thought the picture was over the line of bad taste.

But I also think it’s a strikingly and beautifully composed picture and piece of art. The reds and blues and blue-red blood. I could see it ending up in a museum.

by Anonymousreply 38January 14, 2022 8:17 PM

R37,

Not only majority black shows-

I really love Grace and Frankie, but they’ve said faggot a few times and I really don’t think that should be acceptable.

Kathy Griffin is a HOMOPHOBE who built a career around OUTING gay celebs for the sake of a punchline. She can go FUCK HERSELF!

by Anonymousreply 40January 14, 2022 8:25 PM

She was great when she did the whole D-list thing, but now comes across more as a political Karen with an axe to grind.

Trump used Homeland security to terrorize this comedian and the defenders of freedom of speech left her left and right. That's hypocrisy at its finest.

That's still a probable outcome, being as how Republicans are currently rigging election laws to be able to overturn outcomes they don't like, and Manchin/Sinema have blocked the Senate so that Democrats cannot stop them from doing it.

Which shows how ridiculous it was. It was a picture. Same hypocrites calling Charlie Hebdo throwing her under the bus.

Are you typing from 1982? I watch everything as part of my job and I haven't seen this in years if not decades.

R47,

I wasn’t even alive in 1982? It’s said all the time. What are you talking about?

by Anonymousreply 48January 14, 2022 9:56 PM

I'm not hearing it anywhere, R34/R48. If you are, maybe you shouldn't be watching those shows.

by Anonymousreply 49January 14, 2022 10:12 PM

The last was Grace and Frankie (when Saul was confronting the protesters). Comedians use it all the time- as R37 said, they’re usually black comedians.

It’s not usually used in malicious ways, but I feel it normalizes the word for the general population.
