Griffin: Trump photo put me on ‘Hollywood blacklist’

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Comedian Kathy Griffin spoke during news conference in Los Angeles on June 2 to discuss the backlash since Griffin released a photo and video of her displaying a likeness of President Donald Trump’s severed head. Griffin said in a YouTube video posted Nov. 18 that she has been on a “Hollywood blacklist” since the photo was released.

Kathy Griffin says she is in the middle of a “Hollywood blacklist” after taking a photo holding a fake severed head that resembled President Donald Trump.

The comedian is currently on a world standup tour. She says in a YouTube video that when she returns to the U.S. she doesn’t have “one single day of paid work” scheduled. She says she doesn’t want to do free shows or work small clubs and thinks she should be able to get her life back.

Griffin says the Trump photo “offended a lot of people,” but added: “this wall of crap has never fallen on any woman in the history of America like it has on me.”

Griffin initially apologized for the photo published in May before saying she was no longer sorry over the summer.
