Kathy Griffin: Severed Trump Head Photo 'Made Me Unemployable, I'm on The D-list'
Liberal comedian still can't find work two years after posting picture
Failing liberal comedian Kathy Griffin says that her 2017 photo of her holding President Donald Trump's severed head has made her 'unemployable.'
But Griffin argues that she did nothing wrong when she posed with the fake bloodied head of the President, adding she has no intention of apologizing for the photo.
Giffin told the Associated Press:
"You can be as offended by that photo all you want, that doesn't bother me at all,” Griffin said on Monday.
“But I want people to know I didn't break the law. If you take a photo like that, you didn't break the law."
"I didn't violate the First Amendment in any way. If you take a photo like that, you didn't violate the First Amendment in any way."
Now the actor and comedian claim she can't find work due to the backlash.
Griffin also regards the severed photo as “an important, historic story,” and intends to film her life's journey following the aftermath.
"I kept saying, 'I think this is an important, historic story,'" Griffin said.
"The President and the Department of Justice shouldn't make you unemployable and uninsurable."
Griffin says she has now begun filing her everyday life using just her iPhone as guerilla filmmaker because nobody will take her on.
The feature filmed, funded by Griffin herself, is part comedy special, according to the “Suddenly Susan” alum.
The comedian added that she attempted to dell it as stand-alone comedy special, but “nobody would even look at it.”
"Look, I made it at Kinkos, OK? I'm still on the D-list," Griffin said.
"I just want people to know you don't have to go down. You can take a few punches, but after I kick the bucket, I want somebody to go, 'You know that crazy redhead? They got her, but she didn't go down.'"
"Now that I've traveled the world with this story, I know that there's a genuine interest in, 'Who's this guy, what's his deal, how does he operate?'"
Griffin also claims she had to buy metal detectors rs because "there were all kinds of incidents. A guy came at me with a knife in Houston," she said.
Griffin adds that there is little hope of r reconciling with her friend and New Years Eve co-host, Anderson Cooper, who decried the severed Trump head image.
The comedian also went after her old boss Andy Cohen.
“Andy Cohen treated me like a dog. He was one of the worst bosses I’ve ever had,” she said.
“The guy decides the entire slate at Bravo, and he gave himself a talk show that magically gets renewed every year.”
