Sassy Liberty AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

Back in May, “comedian” Kathy Griffin came under fire for a grotesque photo shoot in which she posed with a bloody, severed head the appeared to be President Donald Trump. Since her defiant justifications and eventual tearful apology with proclamations exclaiming President Trump “broke her” Griffin has been noticeably absent from the public eye.

Griffin was fired from co-hosting CNN’s New Year’s Eve special with Anderson Cooper and various other engagements were canceled as a result of her violent, ISIS like display. The 56-year-old has been noticeably absent from the public eye since the ill-fated photo shoot, yet Griffin states the backlash still continues.

Take it from Kathy Griffin — once you behead the president, there’s no coming back.

Griffin posted a lengthy diatribe on her Facebook page detailing her blacklisting following a rescinded invite from delivering the opening remarks at The Hollywood Reporter Power 100 Women In Entertainment breakfast. She whines and laments –

“I don’t have one single day of paid work ahead of me in the United States for the rest of my life.  If you’ve ever wondered what blacklisting in any industry looks like, especially if you’re a woman of a certain age, I’ll show you right now.”

Griffin went on to explain she received an invite last month to speak at the event in question. An event that she has attended numerous times in the past, even as recently as last year.  In the social media post, Griffin attached the email exchange between herself and her former publicist, her office, and the Hollywood Reporter informing Griffin of the change.

Her former publicist states –

“You are not speaking at it, but you are getting formal invite to go per Matt at HR. They are very supportive of you and want you to do something at another event, says they completely went overboard and too long w/ people speaking.”

But Griffin is not at ALL convinced.

She goes on to explain in her lengthy Facebook post  –

“I do not buy their official reasoning and I believe ‘the word has been put out’ on me. I can’t help but take this as another occasion where Hollywood is blacklisting a woman and silencing her. After decades of hard work in this industry, it’s my opinion that this is not right nor justified.

Yeah, I took one photo holding up a children’s Halloween Trump mask with ketchup on it…so what? How’s that feigned outrage working out for you now in light of a possible impending nuclear holocaust?” 

Griffin noted that she has spent the last few decades attempting to bring humor to controversial topics in what she terms as an “extremely male-dominated field.”

“I have received no public support that has translated into being able to simply resume my life-long career. In any way possible, I will, of course, continue to champion those without voices and those who are disenfranchised, with the hope of being able to do my job.”

Griffin’s Facebook post in its entirety states –

 

If you’ve ever wondered what blacklisting in any industry looks like, especially if you’re a woman of a certain age, I’ll show you right now.

Last month, I received an invite through my former publicist to deliver the opening remarks at The Hollywood Reporter Power 100 Women In Entertainment breakfast that will be held in December. I’ve attended this event numerous times, including last year when they honored Megyn Kelly (and yeah…I playfully flipped her the bird when she continued to praise Trump). I was honored to FINALLY have my chance to take the mic at an event I admired and to address my peers directly. Unfortunately, they rescinded my offer and I am no longer invited to speak. I do not buy their official reasoning and I believe “the word has been put out” on me. I can’t help but take this as another occasion where Hollywood is blacklisting a woman and silencing her. After decades of hard work in this industry, it’s my opinion that this is not right nor justified. Yeah, I took one photo holding up a children’s Halloween Trump mask with ketchup on it…so what? How’s that feigned outrage working out for you now in light of a possible impending nuclear holocaust?

For decades, I have worked to shine a light in a humorous way on a coterie of topics, controversial and otherwise, in an extremely male-dominated field. I have received no public support that has translated into being able to simply resume my life-long career.

In any way possible, I will of course continue to champion those without voices and those who are disenfranchised, with the hope of being able to do my job. I just want to make you laugh, even though I don’t have one single day of paid work ahead of me in the United States for the rest of my life. That’s what blacklisting is.

I’ve attached the emails that were sent to my team and I so you can all see for yourself.
