Kathy Griffin took yet another jab at ex best friend Anderson Cooper — telling Buzzfeed News she "doesn't give a f**k left to give" when referring to "older white guys."

The conversation got heated during the interview when Griffin was asked about Cooper's late mother, who died this year at the age of 95.

“I was really in love with Anderson’s mom, the great Gloria Vanderbilt. She let me call her ‘Glo-Vandy.’ She gave me so many life lessons… I actually knew her better than Anderson in a way.”

But the topic quickly turned to slamming Cooper when asked about her relationship with powerful men in the media.

“Anderson Cooper and CNN President Jeff Zucker are cut from the same cloth. I’ve known Jeff for a long time, but a lot of these older white guys hate me, and they’ve hated me for years, because I’ve been a ballsy chick my whole career and I’ve never learned my lesson."

The feisty redhead continued: "Misogyny and sexism is a big part of my message, and as I get older I don’t have a f**k left to give...So I don’t really worry about the Jeff Zuckers and the old dinosaurs anymore — the ‘check-signers’ I call them — because they’re still the same old white guys who told me 20 years ago I was going to be nothing, and that I was never going to make a living.”

As previously reported, the controversial comedian was fired from her CNN New Years Eve hosting — which she had done for years alongside Cooper — in 2017 after she shocked the world when she posed with a replica of Donald Trump’s severed head.

Griffin at the time claimed the scandal “broke” her career, and she bashed Cooper, 52, amid the fallout for not coming to her defense — going as far as to call her ex-friend “The Spineless Heiress,” referencing Cooper’s Vanderbilt roots.
