Comedian Kathy Griffin is back in the news after uploading a YouTube video in which she expressed frustration at being unable to find work as well as claiming to be the victim of a “wall of crap” that has fallen on her. She said,
“When I get home, I do not have one single day of paid work in front of me.”
Griffin called her video a “State of the Union,” but seemed to spend very little time on speaking about the state of any union. Instead, she spent much of the five minutes whining about the state of the feminist movement, complaining about the downward spiral that her career has taken, and reassuring her fans that she has not lost her mind.
Griffin’s troubles began after she approved of participating in a photo-shoot that featured her wielding the bloodied mask of the 45th President of the United States as some sort of gory trophy. The photographs shared a striking similarity to images of soldiers of ISIS holding up the heads of their captives.
Both Donald Trump fans as well as Donald Trump critics condemned the disturbing photo-shoot as having gone too far.
For the record, advocating for the beheading of the President of the United States is illegal, and any who choose to do so should expect a visit from the Secret Service.
Facing condemnation from both sides of the political aisle, Griffin apologized for offending her fans, but then later retracted her apology during an appearance on Australian morning show, Sunrise.
When co-host Samantha Armytage brought up the fact that there were critics of Trump who were also outraged over Griffin’s photo-shoot, the comedian retorted,
“No! You’re full of crap. Stop acting like my little picture is more important than talking about the actual atrocities that the president of the United States is committing.”
In Griffin’s video, she talks about being blacklisted in Hollywood, and unable to find work.
“This wall of crap has never fallen on any woman in the history of America like it has on me.”
Griffin seemed genuinely puzzled that her previously-won entertainment awards have offered no boost for this low point in her career.
“I wish I was on television. I have two Emmys… Which apparently doesn’t mean anything.”
Throughout the entire five minutes of Kathy Griffin’s State of the Union video, it is noticeably apparent that she still doesn’t seem to understand what she did wrong.
Several times, she makes reference to the photo-shoot, but there seems to be very little remorse or understanding of what was so wrong about it. It’s clear that she understands how it has hurt her career, but beyond that, she doesn’t seem to have a clue.
