Sources have told Straight Shuter that Griffin, 56, does not want to stay out of the spotlight any longer, and she is actually going in an international comedy tour in the coming months. She knows she still has many fans in the Blue States and overseas, so she is more than prepared to make a comeback.

“I sincerely apologize,” Griffin said after being cut from CNN when the photo went viral.

“The image is too disturbing. I understand how it offends people. It wasn’t funny. I get it. I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my career. I will continue. I ask your forgiveness. Taking down the image. Going to ask the photographer to take down the image.”

Following the backlash, the comedian went into hiding, later revealing that she has always felt like an outsider in Hollywood and the Trump drama only made it worse.

“For a long time I’ve sort of been considered an outsider in Hollywood. Ellen DeGeneres can’t stand me and everyone likes her. Leave it to me to be the one, right?”

She even bashed DeGeneres, 59, for not supporting female comics enough over the years.

“There’s nothing liberal or progressive about Hollywood. Not for women. Not for women of a certain age at all,” she claimed.
