Kathy Griffin is unfunny, irritating, and untalented. Before she annihilated herself by posing with a bloody decapitated Donald Trump head, she didn’t have much of a career. Now she has no career, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have a brilliant plan to get one. At a Writer’s Guild event recently, the Z-list comedian blamed Hollywood writers for her 1-inch fall from grace and told them all to go f*ck themselves. I’m sure every player in the entertainment business is lining up to work with her now.
Over the weekend the Writer’s Guild held it’s annual awards ceremony. For some strange reason they thought it would be fun to let Kathy Griffin present an award. For an even stranger reason, Griffin thought presenting an award meant that she should make it all about her:
“It’s me, Kathy Griffin — I got a haircut and I lost my career in a day. Hi. I just want to thank all the powerful writers and show runners in this room for fucking no support,” said Griffin, adding, “Where the fuck have you been?”
Prior to Griffin losing her sad career, none of these writers and show runners were eager to work with her on anything, so why does she think it’s a big deal that they also had no interest in her after she mocked the beheading of the President of the United Sates? The answer is because Griffin is trying to blame the self-inflicted shiftiness of her life on everyone else.
For the record: nobody in the Writer’s Guild forced Griffin to do a photoshoot holding the severed head of President Trump. This was a decision she made herself as a grown-ass adult. She thought it would be funny and it wasn’t, which actually proves what a terrible comedian she is.
I understand that a career in the entertainment business depends very little on talent; it’s who you know and who you blow. While there are many ways talentless hacks can get work in Hollywood, one of them isn’t telling the decision-makers and creative people to f*ck off for something that isn’t their fault. Griffin is out of her mind if she thinks this is how she’s going to revive her career.
And truth be told, she is completely crazy. Check out this tweet she sent after the award:

If she thinks getting an unpaid gig to present a minor award for a non-televised event is her being “back” she’s delusional. This would be like if Colin Kaepernick claimed he got his NFL career back because he did the coin flip at a youth flag football game. And if Kaepernick told all the kids to f*ck off for making him kneel during the National Anthem.
