Disgraced Kathy Griffin Whines She's Blacklisted And Out Of Work In New Video
Kathy Griffin released a new YouTube video on Saturday in which she whines about being out of work and blacklisted by Hollywood following her slamming President Trump and TV host Andy Cohen.
"This wall of crap has never fallen on any woman in the history of America the way it has on me," she complained.
In the video, titled "State of the Union," the comedian, looking anxious in a white tee shirt, spoke into the camera on Nov. 18, telling fans she was on a world tour but wanted to let them know, "I'm getting a lot of online hate from trolls who think I lost my mind."
Griffin joked that losing her mind had made her a star in the first place, and confided, "At 57, I don't have a lot of time to be patient" about career matters.
"Don't be too hard on me. I'm fully in the middle of a Hollywood blacklist," she said.
Griffin was embroiled in scandal after her tasteless President Donald Trump bloody mask photos shocked America , and she later attacked Watch What Happens Live host and Bravo executive Andy Cohen in a shocking You Tube video.
The comedian claimed that Cohen, who replaced her on CNN's New Year's Eve broadcast with Anderson Cooper, offered her cocaine—twice!—before her two appearances on WWHL.
Cohen vehemently denied Griffin's allegations.
Griffin stated on her new video about the alleged blacklist, "It is real. I'm not booked on any talk shows."
She said she'd been selling tickets worldwide and is currently performing in Austria, but it's been tough as she has no TV platform.
"I just want you guys to know, when I get home, I do not have one single day of work in front of me," Griffin moaned. "And people that want me to go back and start in comedy clubs and do ten minutes again, I don't mean to be an a**hole, 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…this is the bulls***, because I've been blacklisted."
Griffin then complained that TV legend Norman Lear sent her fundraising letters and he can't ask her for money anymore because "my legal bills are through the roof…."
The funnygal said she hoped disenfranchised people would get inspiration from her struggle.
Griffin was hopeful after her gig in Austria, but said forces were coming against her and as an aside, referred to the Harvey Weinstein scandal and feminism in her video.
"I'm not going to lie. It's going to be hard when I go home" to the U.S., she said.
"I think I should be able to get my life back," Griffin said, conceding she had offended many with her bloody Trump mask stunt.
Griffin said she wished she was on TV and begged fans to have faith in her.
