[Blind Gossip] This comedian pulled a stunt that was intended to be edgy and funny.
Want to know what was going on behind the scenes after the stunt went public? Of course you do!
Well, she was happy and laughing… for about an hour.
She was thrilled that the photo was getting so much play and that it was making every publication. Some of her friends were calling her and texting her about how awesome it was. She was laughing and shouting, “Yes! Yes!” every time it was the top item on a website. She thought it was really edgy and funny and a hugely successful stunt.
After the first hour came the backlash.
[His] fans were being unbelievably vicious and calling her “b*tch” and “c*nt” and threatening her with [various violent acts]. She started crying. She was really worried about her personal safety. She does not think she was wrong. She was just scared about all the threats and wanted to make them stop. That’s why she backed down.

[Optional] Do you think she is funny? Did you think her stunt was funny?
Comedian: Kathy Griffin
Comedian Kathy Griffin was criticized after she did a photo shoot earlier this year featuring her holding the bloody, severed head of President Donald Trump.
She quickly apologized to try to stem the backlash, but we knew that her apology was a lie. We knew that she apologized because she was scared, not because she was sorry.
We did not know if the day would ever come when she would admit that.
Today is that day.
Kathy Griffin just rescinded her apology!
Kathy Griffin: ‘I’m No Longer Sorry’ For Decapitated Donald Tump Photo
Kathy Griffin is taking back her apology for her controversial photoshoot in May that featured a decapitated Donald Trump.
While discussing the images with Australia’s Sunrise, the comedian didn’t hold back as she slammed the backlash surrounding the provocative image. “I’m no longer sorry,” she said in the Tuesday, August 29, interview. “The whole outrage was BS. The whole thing got so blown out of proportion.”
Griffin went on to name specific people who called her out for the shoot while also mentioning how her business suffered in the aftermath. As previously reported, Griffin’s tour was subsequently canceled due to death threats and she was fired from her cohosting gig on CNN’s New Years Eve special. “I lost everybody,” she said. “I had Chelsea Clinton tweeting against me. I had friends, Debra Messing from Will & Grace, tweeting against me. I lost everybody.”
“I have been through the mill and I didn’t just lose one night on CNN,” she continued. “These Trump fans, they’re hardcore.”
Anchor Samantha Armytage quickly interjected to point out that Clinton, 37, and Messing, 49, are not Trump supporters before moving on to question Griffin’s perception of the incident. “Even Democrats said it was out of line,” she said. “I get that comedy is about pushing the boundaries and being politically incorrect and that’s fine. But do you not agree that that picture, holding up a severed head, I know it’s a mask covered in tomato sauce, but do you not accept that that was a little bit over the line?”
Griffin retorted: “No, you’re full of crap.”
The comedian continued to explain that she feels the photo has gotten too much attention instead of more pressing issues: “Stop acting like my little picture is more important than talking about the actual atrocities that the president of the united states is committing.”
Griffin had previously apologized for the photo just hours after it posted. Amid the immediate backlash, Griffin shared a video on Instagram expressing regret. “I sincerely apologize,” she said in the clip at the time. “I am just now seeing the reaction [to] these images. I’m a comic. I cross the line. I move the line, then I cross it. I went way too far. The image is too disturbing. I understand how it offends people. It wasn’t funny. I get it.”
So, just as we originally told you, Kathy Griffin’s original “sincere” apology was a complete lie!
She was not sorry at all. She only apologized because she was scared and she wanted to save herself..
Congratulations to everyone who got this one right! Moonmist09 was first!

not funny, kathy.
Not a fan of Donald Trump but that “joke” was too far. How do you insinuate such a thing? Terrible! He might be an * but no one deserves to die like that. And to insinuate such, as a person in the public eye, is uncalled for and morally deficient.
Kathy Griffin. It wasn’t funny but I don’t think she deserves to be threatened and insulted over it. He’s a public servant, he has to expect that people are going to make jokes, tasteless or otherwise. Kathy Griffin should maybe stop whining as well now. Don’t know how she expected it to go either.
Kathy Griffin, who is getting a lot of publicity.
Not funny at all
If this had been an October 31 stunt and she was dressed up as Carrie she would have still offended but it would have been tolerated but she put herself in an indefensible position with this stunt and strengthened Trump’s position politically . I am reminded in my youth of Halloween where we would have egg wars and this goes back when JackoLanterns were lit on Halloween only. If you or your possessions were egged on the 31 it was laughed off . The day after or before— you had an enemy.
This was a dumb move for KG. But Trump encouraged violence & cruelty during his campaign (hints to take out certain people) so this is what we have in our country now.
Kathy Griffin. What a loser.
However…..if ISIS ever wants a comedienne at one of their events, she’s the one. Certainly she can’t claim any high ground over them, now.
Funny? Meh. But Im not mad about it.
Not funny at all. The photograph was depraved, whatever a persons political views no one with any decency could condone it on any level. I don’t buy her sorry BS , she is clearly not and I am glad she got fired by CNN .
Your tag “comedy” is so completely wrong. There was nothing comedic about this.
Iam from India & I just wanna say…….When are you guys gonna realize he’s not just Donald Trump anymore, he’s the PRESIDENT of USA.Aleast respect his position. Remember you’re not mocking him you’re mocking your own country and making a fool of it in front of the world. If you got a problem with him,run for president & dethrone him….. We know that ain’t gonna happen !!!!!!!
Obviously this is Kathy Griffin. What a bubble she lives in. Not to mention, she loves stirring the pot because she doesn’t care what kind of attention it gets her but she stepped over the line. That image was gross and disturbing.
Kathy Griffin… Her comedy has gotten desperate over the years. I used to find her hilarious, less so lately. The bloody Trump/Michael Myers mask wasnt that funny IMO but Trumps “fans” need to chill.
The Untalented and Unfunny Kathy Griffin. How in the world did she even become a celebrity?
Kathy Griffin, of course.
I do not think she is funny. The stunt wasn’t funny either, but I say if you want to cause a stir then man up and stand by your decision. She did all that work to make a statement that she had to know wouldn’t be received well.
Being upset about being called a C*nt after you fake cutting of the head of someone to express your level of hatred is a bit ironic, no? I think she’s going to reap the whirlwind she deserves. If someone like Rush Limbaugh had done similar about Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton, the heads of Main Stream Media would have exploded.
One other thing. I’m also willing to guess that her decision to back down had less to do with her concerns for her safety and more about her loss of endorsement deals, etc.
“Comedian” – Kathy Griffin
She’s never been funny, and this stunt proved exactly why. It’s fine to make innocent jokes about the President, but when you insinuate physical violence, it’s no longer a joke and should be taken as a serious threat. Can you imagine if someone did this to Obama? They would be crucified. Everyone should respect the office of the Presidency, regardless of political opinions.
She definitely deserved all the backlash she received!
Kathy griffin and her trump photos. Why was it funny again? Just did not get it.
Definitely cathy griffin.
Did i think it was funny? Not really. I mean if this had been a year ago and you substituted the scene with Obama’s head? Would the media and the rest of his supporters find it funny or in good taste?
I seriously doubt it. More likely that person doing the “funny” would be forever ruined and labled racist, hate-mongerer etc. There is so much seething anger particularly from the left these days and you don’t have to be emperor palpatine to feel it.
Kathy Griffin is about as funny as a septic bedsore. What did this idiot think? If you are going to be offensive, then expect backlash. I wouldn’t ever dream of preventing something like this. It shows how stupid she really is.
Now she’s losing so many jobs.
No, it wasn’t funny at all.
Not at all funny Kathy Griffin. Apparently little Barron Trump saw it and thought (in light of everything that’s been going on in the world at the moment) that it was real. No 11 year old child should be exposed to that for someone’s sick version of humour. She should be barred from Hollywood – people are entitled to their political opinions but wishing death upon the man is taking things to a new low.
No, not really! I have a pretty sick and twisted sense of humor and thought the whole thing was a bit off! Looked like an IsIs propaganda video. I think she was jumping on the whole hate Trump train and it derailed. Her friends sound like a bunch of losers and will agree with anything this Z lister says. While I am a democrat and not a fan of Trump, I am not going to become what I despise and that is being a bully or a tyrant.
Kathy Griffin, Fake Decapitated Head of Trump
Not Funny, but sickos to threaten her life over it, best she apologized, but screw CNN for firing her
No, I don’t think her “joke” was funny. I think it was in truly poor taste. And I am not a T-bird fan at all. I think he’s a creep. But that doesn’t mean that I would go along with something like this. She made a huge mistake which is already affecting her career. She’s going to have to lay low for a couple of years to get past this. And be interviewed. I hope she’s got Oprah on speed dial!
Comedian: Kathy Griffin
Obviously Kathy Griffin and her bizarre, tasteless stunt. I have never been a fan of Kathy’s…so good riddance.
It was a stupid joke. What Trump is doing to us as a country is far worse than what Kathy did!
Kathy Griffin and the severed head of 45.
I think 45 is a disaster for the US, but I this time Kathy went too far.
I usually like her and I hate Trump, but I think this was a bit overboard. Just unnecessary.
If this is the Kathy G stunt it was in extremely poor taste – and so disrespectful –
How would you like your children to see your head on a spike with blood dripping down – if that does not incite violence what does? Are you condoning such inhumane treatment of people? Really it is worthy of a severe penalty – perhaps even some jail time to think over what can be considered humor – As that mean spirited “prank” has no humor at all!
Gay Fawkes says
Wonder what the reaction would’ve been if someone had made an Obama dummy then lynched it?
Kathy Griffin. She is horrid.
I did not find her stunt in the least bit funny and either is she. She has hit a new low. I hope her career is over, or at least takes a very steep noise dive.
Maybe, just maybe, one out of twenty of her ‘jokes’ are funny. Mostly, Kathy Griffin is vile and disgusting. She, not the ‘Zendaya incident’, was the reason “Fashion Police” tanked after Joan Rivers died. Kathy is a D-List entertainer by her own admission. She is more surprised than anyone that she’s made it this far. And now, hopefully, it’s finally over and done.
I think she used to be funny, then she lost the balance that made her funny but likable. She’s been more and more out there and it hasn’t been working for her. This latest stunt is just more of the same. I didn’t think it was funny at all, and I’m one of those libtards.
Obviously Kathy Griffin and her bloody Trump head.
I don’t think her stunt was funny. It was in poor taste and shows a lack of common decency. You just don’t do that to people because you don’t agree,
Not funny at all- she looked like an IS wannabe
Apparently Trumps young son thought it was real. Misjudgement- never do it again!!!!!
Kathy Griffin, of course. I really love the chemistry she shares with Anderson Cooper when they host New Year’s Eve together for CNN, but I generally don’t find her funny as a comedienne on her own.
I am not a Trump supporter by any means, but I thought the photo was tasteless and inappropriate.
It was disgusting, immature and disrespectful. These people are out of control- it is not normal or humorous. The “jokes” are not funny – I have stopped watching all late night TV.
Kathy Griffin definitely wasn’t funny with her photo. Whatever you may think of the man he is the POTUS. Posing with his head the way ISIS barbarians do is reprehensible. It’s so sad that she doesn’t get this.
Optional: Big fat no, and another Big fat no. It was disgusting and stupid. Regardless of one’s politics, that kind of thing is uncalled-for.
I really like Kathy griffin but come on girl.. I keep thinking that that’s just who she is and how her comedy is but why would she think it was funny??
Bah I wasn’t done with my comment… I’m wondering which of her idiotic friends egged this on and even thought it was funny. I don’t care who I hate I wouldn’t want to see something done to anyone like this. I can’t imagine my 7 year old seeing my head like that..
Yes, she’s funny but this wasn’t. Still, no more tasteless than many comics like Dave Chappelle who joked on SNL about the Pulse nightclub shooting.
As for the Trump’s reaction, I agree with Richard Painter, the former White House ethics lawyer for Pres. George W. Bush, who said:
“Bush, Obama or any mature president would focus on real bad guys around the world and let the Secret Service talk to Kathy Griffin.”
Kathy Griffin. She was way wrong. Should she receive death threats? No. But libd have done the same against Trump’s family and that is not right.
Pierre Latin says
Optional: CNN FIRED HER. HAHAHAHA….
Kathy Griffen of course. No, neither she nor her stunt was funny. Insert other people into the equation & see how hilarious it seems then. What if she wasn’t a comedian? What if it were just some average Joe holding up the POTUS’s head? Funny then? What if someone was laughing about Obama’s severed head? Funny or disturbing??? Yeah, thought so. I don’t like Trump but that was just beyond.
firefly nights says
It was not funny at all. How she didn’t see that this would blow up in her face escapes me. Stupid woman.
When you play with fire, Kathy Griffin…..
(I’m no fan of Trump but was that REALLY worth it? That head looked…beyond ridiculous!)
[Optional] Do you think she is funny? Did you think her stunt was funny?
No, it was not funny. She was never my cup of tea, sooo not to taste of my humour.
I cannot believe all this selective outrage that is going on.
She needs another manager.
Kathy Griffin. And, no, it wasn’t funny, and this is what she does. She’s cut from the same cloth as Lena Dunham. I don’t think either of them cares particularly about the political or social issues; they just want attention, and use shock value to get it. That’s why it’s so disturbing and contemptible
Kathy Griffin, what she did was incredibly wrong and disrespectful. I lose all respect for her. I’m glad she cried. I hope this ruins her career.
Kathy Griffin or course.
Wasn’t funny, but she isn’t funny.
What she did was despicable! Horrifying. And bull that it was just his supporters saying it. Shame on her.
Kathy Griffin. She has never been funny. It’s perplexing that she’d be considered a comedian.
… And in addition to her (scoff) fans scaring the $#!+ out of her, I hope the Secret Service are making her life a living hell, too.
Kathy Griffin. She is not funny. She has never been funny.
Death threats are unnecessary and inappropriate. So is her humor.
Kathy Griffin will always act before she thinks. No it wasn’t funny imo.
Kathy Griffin and the Trump head.
Honestly, when I first saw the picture I thought it was Carrot Top. Pathetic ill-conceived stunt by an unfunny has been. She’ll be working for ESPN in a week.
Kathy Griffith, Trump
Looks like they can dish it, but can’t take it. Ted Nugent, Anne Coulter and countless lawmakers. I wonder how traumatized Obama’s little girls were when they saw all those mock Obama lynchings. Kathy Griffith is a comedian, get over it.
Kathy Griffin, no and no. But after eight years of Obama being lynched in effigy, I really can’t be ?.
She’s funny SOMETIMES. But in this case, she went waaaaay too far. Lots of other ways to make fun without getting gorey.
Dear Kathy Griffin
Kathy Griffin (my big fingers hitting the small keyboard messed it up the first time)
She is, sometimes. As for the gag itself… Picture someone from Fox News doing the same thing to Obama. It shows how insular celebrities are that she could do this and not expect any blowback. By the way, I didn’t vote for Trump.
Kathy Griffin- it was gross. I don’t care if you hate him or not, that was just wrong. Especially since his 11 yr old
Son saw it and freaked out
Vile, hateful Kathy Griffin, of course, and NO, I do not think she or her stupid stunt was funny, disgusting is more like it! What she and her photographer partner in crime did was horrible, and she deserves every bit of backlash she’s getting! Like it or not, the man is the President of the United States, and we as Americans should show him respect, whether we like him or not! The hatred from some of these “celebrities” has gotten out of control, and people are getting sick and tired of it!
Comedian: Kathy Griffin
Optional: Yes, I think she’s very funny but this stunt wasn’t. No sort of violence is funny. I wish she would have owned it and not apologized but I understand why she did. It still won’t calm down the crazy people threatening her though.
Kathy Griffin. I think she’s funny but the stunt wasn’t.
No and no.
Kathy… and sad she had to fake apologize without makeup
It’s all over the news right now.
Kathy Griffin. She’s not funny & I don’t care about the pic, tired of hearing/reading about it
It wasn’t funny at all. It was in poor taste.
But there has been an incredible overreaction. All one has to do is google “Obama effigy” and you’ll get dozens of pictures of different time when President Obama was burned or hanged in effigy.
Which doesn’t make the photo any more acceptable, but I don’t think this is unusual an act as it’s been made out to be. Still horrible–and I’m no Trump supporter.
No not funny, and her stunt was over the line, even for her.
Can’t stand her and celebrities using the division of politics for personal attention and publicity. Makes me ill, celebrities can have their own opinion, however entertainment isn’t the place for that. Don’t want to hear it at award shows, concerts etc. Keep private life private~ and mainly, don’t be a jackass!
And no matter how you feel about the President, you shouldn’t post images as violent as that. Think of his family. Or the crazy people who are out there who might think they should make the image a reality.
It was a stupid, reckless move. And I can’t help but wonder how people might have reacted if it had been any of our previous presidents, while they were actively in office.
To me, it just shows how incredibly desperate she is for attention.
red hair in the pic gives it away Kathy griffin….trumps 11 year old son thought it was real ….
her newyears eve times square gig got canceled…a gig at a casino cancelled one of her shows…she went too far
Her “stunt” was beyond disgusting!!
I don’t think she is funny in the sense that I would be doubled over laughing, but her being so brazen is what is entertaining, in general. As far as her ‘stunt’, I would say that it wasn’t any different of what I saw being shown/done when President Obama was in office.
Do you think she is funny? Did you think her stunt was funny?
No and hell, no! She demonstrated remarkably bad judgment for an over 50 year old woman. There is nothing funny about a bloody, severed head especially when it is supposed to be our president.
Her video will be used by ISIS and Al Quaida and that will be her legacy. Have fun with the Secret Service.
usually, no cause the pic was just psycho creepy (the look on her face and the head)
Kathy Griffin. The pics are vile, this sounds like a blind that’s trying to make her look better. If someone did this to Obama, they would be charged with a hate crime. The fact that she went into it with a calm head and got support shows what people feel they can get away with.
Kathy Griffin: The decapitation stunt!
Used to love her, now I think she is pathetic
Diamond Girl says
Kathy Griffith and that severed trump head.
Don’t think she or that stunt was funny at all.
Idk if she’s funny or not but this was over the top cruel and unnecessary.
I am no fan of 45 but that was too much, she went too far.
Kathy Griffin was totally wrong and disgusting. You can disagree with someone’s politics without that stunt. Freedom of speech is one thing but she crossed a major line.
Kathy Griffin…….I think she is obnoxious and her stunt was “deplorable”!
Kathy “Revoltoid” Griffin
Nope and nope. So many other things that she’s said and done were also revolting, although none this bad.
Don’t think the people who are threatening her are funny either. WTH is the matter with people, her included?
That freak Kathy Griffin and her picture holding up the severed President Trump head. She only regrets it because CNN, etc. canned her. She is vile and disgusting as is anyone who thinks her stupid attention seeking stunt was cute or funny. Seems as though she would fit in well with ISIS since the severed head is its calling card.
Comedian: Kathy Griffin!
Optional: funny in a in poor taste kinda way. It reminds me when the production team working on Game of thrones thought it was ok to put a fake George Bush head on a spike in the show .
Jelly Drop says
Kathy Griffin and that Trump head.
I think she can have funny moments but sometimes is too crass.
Optional: I’ve never really found her funny, and I didn’t think this was funny or edgy. It was disrespectful and in poor taste. And I would say that about any president being depicted that way. Though death threats to her are also in poor taste.
She’s funny but she has no filter. Yes she went too far.she stopped to his level.
Kathy Griffin. She was wrong, wrong, wrong. I saw her apology and it was self serving, not genuine. She and her ilk have to realize outside of Hollywood there are a whole bunch of people who voted for Trump and do appreciate that vile display. Many innocent people have been beheaded by ISIS. That display was mocking them as well as Trump. You reap what you sow, Kathy Griffin.
It was my favorite show to watch on New Years Eve! I love her and AC together. CNN usually “fires” her after the show, but this is different.
I don’t know what she was thinking. I have to think that she knew and wanted the PR. Unfortunately, this takes attention away from some really serious things going on. I’m disappointed.
Funny as a heart attack. I don’t believe for a second she was that scared about threats. It would have been expected in the least. She just wanted attention and now that it backfired she’s trying to be a victim. Typical.
This is about the Kathy Griffin situation, obvs. I’ve never found her funny but the backlash here is out of line. People had a noose around a faux Obama just last year. How about we show the video of Trump grabbing women and forcing himself on them? Oh that’s right, his edgy he doesn’t do in front of a camera. Loser. Sad.
Kathy fired from CNN Griffin. I’m not a fan of Trump but found the picture disgusting. She should be investigated by the secret service or FBI. She has never been funny but has now crossed the like into tacky, disturbing, distasteful and disrespectful of the office of the POTUS.
Not funny…way too brutal and it crossed a line, even for her. She could have made fun of him in another way.
Not funny at all
Optional: I found it wildly inappropriate. I understand the right to free expression but she took it way too far. I can’t imagine what the response would be if this stunt was pulled on any other president.
Kathy Griffin..it doesn’t matter whether or not it was funny. Trump and his supporters need to grow some thicker skin…look at all the said and did toward Obama and Hilary. No one cares. Stop getting so outraged aaalll tthhee tiiiimme.
Comedian: Kathy Griffin
It was definitely edgy, but forgettable. She has funny moments.
Optional: I HATE Donald Trump with every fiber of my being, I think he’s an embarrassment to this country, and in no way shape or form support him, but this was truly awful. I can’t imagine how or why she would think something like that picture would be ok with all of the atrocities in the world right now. At the very least I find it horribly insensitive to victims of terrorism everywhere.
Sour Lemon says
Nothing against her but I don’t think she’ that funny. I think she tends to be pretty mean.
This is Kathy Griffin for sure! I think Trump is awful and I support her freedom of expression, but I also think if you do something controversial you better be prepared for controversy. She wanted attention, she is getting it – it’s not up to her to determine what kind of attention is okay or appropriate. Can’t take the heat, then get out of the kitchen and go get some more plastic surgery or something.
My Kathy Griffin
She’s funny but this stunt? Not at all. She knew that already though
Kathy Griffin holding the Trump head. She could have made it funny. Instead, it came off in poor taste.
Kathy you went too far. First of all whether you like him or not he is the President of our country. Second an image that I completely associate with the heinous acts of terrorrists, which in effect is celebrating and promoting that act, makes you further their hateful propaganda.
The minute the photo leaked on TMZ I knew it was a stunt to get her back to relevancy and that SHE probably leaked it. She didn’t expect to lose gigs and sponsors over it so her gamble failed.
High Steppa says
Kathy Griffin with the picture of the severed head of Donald Trump. I thought she is funny in limited doses, but this was NOT funny. It was actually sickening. Shades of ISIS. If she doesn’t honestly see how wrong this was, she has problems.
Kathy Griffin and that disturbing severed head of Donald Trump stunt she pulled. I’m not a Trump supporter but that was just a little TOO far. It looked a little too real, a bloody head severed at the neck. I didn’t like it and it wasn’t funny.
Truth be told, I never ever liked her anyhow. She’s not funny to me, never was.
The Beagle says
No doubt that this is Kathy Griffin.
Optional: I don’t know enough about her to know whether I think she is funny or not. Her stunt was in bad taste, but not worthy of the uproar. There were mock lynchings of Obama, too. It’s only offensive to the opposing “team”, so to speak. Personally, I don’t care either way. None of these people sleep in my bed.
I am about as anti-Trump as you can get, but this stunt was gross. Victims are beheaded for “supposed” wrong-doings and this is a slap in the face to them. I will not support this entitled, “but this biting comedy!” crap any longer. There are people in this world that have suffered and are suffering greatly.
Freshly fired Kathy Griffin.
Not in the least x2
Aubergine Skye says
Comedian: Kathy Griffin
She’s an idiot. Donald Trump is teflon – nothing sticks to that A-hole, and she’s probably just cost herself her career. Also, the photo was just vile and tacky – especially with everything currently happening in the world.
She’s almost always funny, but when she goes wrong…she REALLY goes wrong.
Kathy Griffin for the Trump Beheading Fiasco
Kathy Griffin. And no, I don’t it was shameful. She wouldn’t have laughed if someone had done the same to Hillary.
I haven’t seen the news but this has got to be Trump-related. Celebs keep hating on him as if it’s the trendy thing to do but the public either doesn’t care or they’re Trump supporters and if they support Trump then they rabidly attack anyone that trashes him.
I don’t think she is funny. I just think she wanted attention.
Kathy Griffin– I thought she was funny back before her “glamourization” have not found her edginess funny at all– she has lost sight of what humor is, and now she has killed her career. She is the architect of her own downfall.
Comedian: Kathy goash, I forgot her name. She has red hair
[Optional] Do you think she is funny? Did you think her stunt was funny?
I lost my appetite. The picture was awful and wholly inappropriate and I don’t even a big fan Trump!
She used to be very funny but she has been playing off her earlier career for years.
I think her stunt was very disrespectful to the Office of the President. I voted for Obama both terms and can just imagine what would have happened if she had pulled this stunt with him. Whether you like or dont like Trump, he is our president and deserves the respect due that role.
It really makes us look ridiculous on the world stage, imho.
I never thought she was funny, I’ve always thought she was just mean at times.
I didn’t think her so called joke was funny either and I never liked Trump long before he became president.
Z-list Kathy Griffin
I never found her funny. She’s obnoxious and even though I don’t like Agent Orange, the photo was vulgar. Not art at all!
Did not see the humor in her “stunt”
I like watching her and Anderson Cooper on New Year’s Eve. They seem good together. However, I saw her live and was not laughing at half of what she said and some of it really bothered me. I don’t dislike her like Amy Schumer, though.
Kathy Griffin. I think she is funny but this stunt was not. But people should be more outraged over what Trump has done/ wants to do than some stupid video.
Kathy Griffin. Not funny. Not at all. I’m not a fan of Trump but I would never condone violence towards the President. She’s wrong and she brought the backlash and loss of her CNN deal on herself. My first thought was, ‘way to kill your career.’ Looks like she is on the F list permanently.
and it was so i don’t get the hate imo
Hatred like that is a mental illness. I hope they prosecute Kathy Griffin
Kathy Griffin. It was not funny.Just inappropriate. It is just a tempest in a glass of water in my opinion.
Kathy Griffin. What is funny to some may not be funny to others. But what is funny (not) is that Ted Nugent repeatedly said in 2012 “if Obama was relected he would be dead or in jail by this time next year”. He gets an invitation to the WH, Kathys gets threats. The same folks threatening her, were patting Ted on the back. Sad.
I agree with you.
I must have missed where Ted took a picture of a beheaded Obama.
Kathy Griffin & that creepy photographer who used to be the boyfriend of Francesca Eastwood.
Don’t know if it was funny, but it was a great fantasy for me. The Dark Side doesn’t belief in free speech, so of course she should take the threats seriously. Remember the recent train stabbings. I hope our country gets back on track before I die.
Kathy Griffin. Yikes. I am definitely no fan of Trump but her post was way, way inappropriate and in terrible taste. And I am glad she got canned from CNN. She was insufferable and I cringed for poor Anderson Cooper. She was sorta funny 10 years ago, except for her super annoying guest spot on Seinfeld. Maybe it was type-casting. 🙂
Of course this is Kathy Griffin.
Kathy Griffin. No one should emulate violence against anyone, whether it is your next door neighbor or the President of the United States. If someone had done something similar to President Obama, they would have never been able to work again.
Obviously Kathie Griffin, who at one time I used to think was funny.
I’m tired of the hypocrisy. Can you imagine if a comedian had decided to use an Obama dummy with a noose around the neck? What would the outcry be then?
I hope she gets investigated and fined. Doing something “over the line,” and then apologizing, or saying I’m sorry, is not enough. Love or hate a president, doing something like this and not getting in trouble only emboldens other, maybe mentally ill, from…
THANK YOU!!!! My sentiments exactly.
Obviously Kathy Griffin. She passed her “sell-by” date long before she started fake coming on to the quietly gay Anderson Cooper. The death by violence of any civil leader is never a cause for yuckin’ it up.
Is she funny? Not really. She tries too hard, and her desperation to be “edgy” just makes covers her in flop sweat. Was her stunt funny? On a scale of 1 to 10 she was a minus 5.
No, she’s not funny. And her stunt was not funny either.
Yes and No
Obv Kathy Griffin. She had her moment of being funny like 10 years ago, now she is desperate. While I despise Donald Trump and everything he stands for, her stunt was gross and not funny at all.
westcoast sunset says
No the stunt wasn’t funny
Didn’t even see it. Heard about it and didn’t care enough to Google it.
Kathy Griffin. Not surprised. I am no fan of the orange wonder, but I thought it was over the top.
It was not funny. I’m no Trump fan, but you don’t kid about killing a president (like he’s Ned Stark).
Wow. Just wow. She backed down because she was scared? Did she think of the president’s kids and grandkids?
How do you feel now, Kathy, that CNN fired you, even Chelsea Clinton said it was horrible, and the Potty company pulled the commercial? And that one of your shows in New Mexico was cancelled? Now do you get it?
Optional: Stunt was NOT funny. It was horrible.
Comedian: The unfunny Kathy Griffin, formerly associated with CNN, but CNN fired her today. Anderson is going to possibly have decent New Year’s Eve coverage!
No, I don’t think she is funny at all.
Nope and nope
She is not funny. Never has been funny. Her stunt was horrible, and I am glad she is getting the consequences from her actions. I also thought that those people who put up effegies of Pres. Obama were just as horrible!
By the way, I don’t think she meant one word of her apology. She only did it because of the backlash!
She is not funny and the stunt was wrong. Her apology was fake as well.
Kathy Griffin…NOT FUNNY or EDGY!
Kathy Griffin doing that stupid photoshoot with Trump’s severed and bloody head.
I hate Trump but that was absolutely tasteless.
Comedian: Kathy Griffin
I think she can be funny, but she often crosses the line. This was one of those times. This was not funny. I am not a Trump fan; in fact, I cannot stand the man, but she was wrong.
Kathy Griffin. I have always liked her brand of comedy, but this was too much. Not funny at all. She’s already been dropped by CNN and will probably have a domino effect with other cancellations. She’s apologized – in a video with no makeup, not sure why – but I think she thought she was being clever and the stunt would get her lots of press. It did. Kathy does love her publicity so how sorry she really is is hard to say.
I don’t think she’s funny. She kinda tried to be the next Joan Rivers but Joan Rivers was able to be crass and funny and still maintain class and dignity, which is not an easy fete. No matter what, this stunt was deplorable and I’m not a fan of the POTUS at all. Also, trying to drum up mass mocking of anyone, in such a violent perceived manner just destroyed any tact she had. She should have thought three times before thinking she was cute. No one is cute enough to do…
Obv, Kathy Griffen.
She isn’t always funny, and I didn’t find this funny in the slightest.
I do not have much nice to say about #45, but I do not condone this AT ALL.
That said, she does not deserve death threats or whatever else she’s getting. She’s insignificant in the scheme of things. Many of Trump’s online supporters are angry men, and they can say very dangerous things from behind their keyboards. She just needs to go away.
Kathy Griffin. No she’s not funny. The stunt was horrific on so many levels. Thinking of the poor families who lost loved ones that way and poor Barron.
Kathy Griffith. Her “stunt” was just a stunt.
Curious, where was all the indignation and outrage from the right when Michelle Obama and her daughters were constantly called “monkey” and “ape” and President Obama was being burned in effigy and hung from the rafters?
My exact thoughts as well…
Do two wrongs make a right??
Kathy Griffith is a disgusting piece of garbage. No offense to garbage. In a time when actual beheadings are carried out by terrorists and real human beings suffer this awful fate, there is no room for this *. And for the President of the United States? Go * yourself Kathy Griffith.
She is very funny but she jumped the shark with this stunt. That picture will accompany her obituary some day. Sad because she is not acting like a healthy, well-adjusted adult. You never cut funny and this wasn’t funny so it should not have been done.
Please just make fun of celebrities and get off the political crap. You just alienated half of your fan base and for what????
I knew she had done this for attention. She wanted the shock value. Little did she know it cost her the CNN gig. Yikes!
I think that she is funny, however, this “stunt” was so uncalled for. Whether you agree with the man or not, it is never okay to make fun of something so heinous. Unfortunately, these things actually happen in the world and it is not something to make light of.
Kathy griffin with her beheaded trump pics got fired from CNN. I think thats the real reason she backed down – not cause shes “scared” of trump supporters. I mean if the Clinton News Network even thinks you took it too far…
I’m not easily offended so i couldn’t care less about this story. That said, kathy griffin is not funny at all. She was a horrible host on Fashion Police. She’s no joan rivera thats for sure!
Comedian: Kathy Griffin.
That photo with the red-hair was a dead giveaway.
Kathy trying to be funny back-fired badly.
No, it wasn’t funny.
The woman with the bloodied head of Trump.
He was voted in – deal with it.
This is obviously Kathy Griffin. I think she’s hilarious & have been to many of her stand up acts over the years (I also own various albums she’s made). Sometimes she misses the mark. It was tasteless & shocking, but honestly, I just figured it was another publicity stunt. Any fan who has followed her over the years know that duh, she enjoys shocking & publicity. Still a fan.
Kathy Griffin. She’s done, ova, kaput.
I despise Chump and have since the 80s. Nonetheless, this stunt was abhorrent.
Kathy Griffin, who has now been fired by CNN as co-host of the New Year with Anderson Cooper. She was a bit out of control anyway!
I don’t think she’s funny. I’ve always thought she was annoying. I don’t think her stunt was funny either. I hate Ol Donnie J. I despise him. But, I don’t agree with violence of any kind.
Kathy Griffin with the Trump beheaded picture
Kathy Griffin’s Trump beheading stunt. I don’t find her very funny.
It was crude but not enough to receive death threats. I’m sure trump is happy it’s pulling attention away from the Russia investigation.
La Lurker says
Kathy Griffin. I’m not a Trump fan, but that photo was really disturbing. If only you could turn back time, Kathy!
no it wasn’t funny at all-she used to be funny tho
Kathy Griffin and the disgusting “joke” over a bloody Trump look alike head. In general I do not find her to be funny, but this was so out of line. I don’t care how she feels about Trump, you just don’t do that about anyone, especially the President, and especially in a time when there are evil groups like ISIS out there beheading people.
Comedian: Kathy Griffin.
Optional: It was not funny. I don’t like Trump but nothing was funny about that video. Snoop Dog video clip in the same theme was funny but not this one.
This is Kathy Griffin. And that pic was a very bad idea
Comedian: Kathy Griffin
She isn’t funny, and this stunt wasn’t funny.
Is this Kathy Griffin? She’s just been sacked from some sort of gig from CNN .
Being a Brit , I only know wee bits about her , so I don’t know if this his her M.O. In comedy.
Really sorry my American Cousins , but I didn’t think her severed head of Trump was funny , I found it rather offensive and I’m not the greatest fan of the Donald .
I do believe in freedom of speech , however , that was a gross thing to do, but Kathy G doesn’t deserve the online threats she’s been receiving .
Or she was losing big jobs like CNN? Kathy Griffin inserts foot in mouth yet again.
Kathy Griffin. Do not like Trump AT ALL but it wa stupid. HOW was it funny? She referenced beheading on GAMES OF THRONES but with ISIS beheadings it was in such poor taste all around. Also, with the tenure and fine line of alt right White Supremacists using freedom of speech as rally cries to violence, it was in such poor taste. Kathy only cares about press period. I have never found her that funny. We live in a country with freedom of speech but you expect and not be exempt from backlash.
Kathy Griffin. I actually do like her brand of humor, and I also despise DJT, however I think it was disgusting that she showed a severed head. She deserves all of the blowback she is getting.
She just torpedoed what was left of her pathetic career.
Kathy G. Not a Trump fan in the least, but that was really over the top and tacky.
Comedian: Kathy Griffin
Optional: I don’t like Trump, but I feel like she went a little far. Especially since her goal in all of this was just to get publicity for herself (not like she was standing up for a cause or anything).
Vidalia Q Intrigue says
Not really, she’s loud and obnoxious just like Trump. I didn’t see the photo but from the description of it being a decapitation pic of someone looking like Trump, it’s not comedy or appropriate of anyone ever.
Kathy Griffin with decapitated Trump.
I didn’t think it was funny and I’m no Trump fan.
Definitely Kathy Griffith
And good riddance from CNN
Never thought she was funn. And it was wrong
I love her comedy but I think she needs to stick to what she does best: commenting on her run-ins with famous people. Her political humor isn’t edgy, it’s vicious and hateful. Everyone has the right to free speech but she’s only adding to the hatred. Preach love, Kathy, not hate.
Truthfully, I think Trump is a moron, but this was a horrible stunt to pull when his little boy could see it and become traumatized. For that reason it was a bad move.
Kathy griffin ftw!!
It was in extremely bad taste and highly irresponsible. No child deserves to see such acts in the media.
Apart from anything else, it trivialises beheadings and all its victims. If Griffin and her pals though it was funny, then they truly are out of touch with reality, and decency.
Kathy Griffin and her ISIS-style photo of Trump’s severed head.
Funny? I’m not even a Trump fan, but what was she thinking? This election has made some people completely unhinged. Please go back to actual comedy, Kathy! You’re better and funnier than this.
I used to think she was funny, but not anymore. Her stunt was not edgy, it was ridiculous.
Kathy Griffin. N matter who you voted for this was totally disrespectful. Not funny, not smart, all I can do is SMH.
The unfunny Kathy Griffin.
Unfunny in every way. What kind of person do you have to be to do something SO vile? This is NOT the message you should be sending to fellow Americans. I mean, she and everyone involved (and those who laughed should show their faces too if they are soooooo amused by something like this!) should apologize to POTUS, his family and America. You are telling everyone you are okay with Terrorism and THAT is not okay. She is mental, her carrier is now over. Bye Felicia!
I don’t care what your views are of Trump, respect your Chief and Commander. This is disgusting. Whether you like the man or not, he’s President. Stop pouting, throwing tantrums and get over it. Grow up and accept it already…or move somewhere better. Not everyone hates Trump. I wasn’t an Obama supporter, but he was my country’s President for 8 yrs, so I respected it. Trump isn’t directly affecting Griffith (who I can’t stand). She’s obnoxious. She’s desperate for attention.
Love this response and have had this conversation over and over for the past several weeks. GET PAST THE ELECTION. He’s our President whether you like him or not!
Just wanted to give you a hug!
Very well said! The Trump hate has gotten old and tired, and Americans are getting sick of it! It’s like they are obsessed with hating the man, people seriously need Jesus in their lives! The man is President of the United States…….get over it, and if you can’t, then seek professional help because you need it!
Bravo”””. I echo your every word!
I don’t usually respond to people on this site especially about politics but you seem like a reasonable person. Many people, including myself, who did not vote for Trump ARE “over” the election. We know he is the president. That doesn’t mean we can’t disagree with his decisions and the decisions of his administration. Accepting him as president doesn’t mean we accept everything he does without question. Our country is built on the diversity of thought and that shouldn’t be stifled. I am…
Agreed. The constant petty “Trump hate” from many celebs and newscasters is getting tiring. I didn’t vote for him but there’s been worse Presidents. I think all this trendy hating on him is stemming from the Democrat party, who just can’t stand that they lost, and some are clearly trying to curry favor with them by publicly disapproving of Trump.
Yeah, she was very wrong. Kathy went off the rails a few years ago, but this was beyond just being vulgar and into reprehensible. Wh in their right mind laughed at that?
Too easy, Kathy Griffin
Is she funny? Occasionally, when she is mocking pompous celebrities.
Was her stunt funny? Absolutely not. The way she is backpedaling and scared, that’s funny!
Comedian: Kathy Griffin
As a disclaimer, I abhor the Trump presidency. I despise it, and him, with all my being. However, her stunt was not funny. Being pictured murdering anyone or beheading a sitting president is not acceptable and anyone doing so should have expected equal backlash. Death threats aren’t ok, but neither is what she did. She can be funny at times but this missed the mark terribly.
No, i think she’s an unfunny pos
funny or not threatening because of something like that should not haeppened in a country like USA.
Comedian: Kathy Griffin
[Optional] Do you think she is funny? Did you think her stunt was funny? Publicity stunt to get her off the D-list. I did not particularly think it was tasteful and I am no fan of Trump by any means.
and essentially SECURED her place on the D-list with her only mainstream working gig given her firing.
Kathy Griffin with the Trump head.
Or, to be more accurate, Kathy Griffen (sp?) posing like the Al Qaeda members did after sawing off the heads of innocent journalists and other captives (holding their severed heads up by the hair) except instead using a mannequin-like head of the (like him or hate him) President of the United States of America.
I’m embarrassed to be a part of this period in American History. Whiny af.
tell me more says
Shes positively unfunny
It was funny, but not for an hour. Only maybe 5 seconds worth of funny. There is something not very funny about a beheading. Just think of Daniel Pearl. See? Not funny.
Kathy Griffin, or whatever her name is.
I agree with the comparison to the tragedy of Daniel Pearl. How funny must his family find this Kathy Griffin “joke”? It’s just disgusting, no matter your political affilation.
Not even 1 second funny, not funny at all. People lose their loves one everyday, by this exact same method by ISIS, a vile, disgusting hate group……..are they or is that funny also? Kathy Griffin and her artist friend are disgusting, and everyone knows it. People are getting tired of these big mouth celebs and their disrespectful hate! If you hate the President that much, then leave America like so many of you said you would if he got elected. Like it or not, Donald Trump is President!
Oh, Kathy Griffin. I do find her funny, but this stunt was the opposite of funny. In very poor taste.
my thoughts exactly.
despise him, but what was she thinking?
If this is Kathy Griffin, no it was not funny
I consider myself liberal and Im not a fan of trump or his policies…but you dont joke like that. I may not like him, but he is the president of my country and this is just awful. and besides, even if he wasnt the president, what the hell was she thinking? that photoshoot is violent and disgusting.
She should have been punished MORE severely. I don’t care if you love or hate the President, this makes our entire country look weak. I’m sure ISIS loved the picture though. I hope her career is finished
It makes your country look weak to whine about a JOKE like that..
That kind of humor is rather common in Europe. With humor you cross lines. Not accepting that is censorship
