It will almost always be considered a good day when the name Kathy Griffin isn’t brought up. Well, dear reader, today is not one of those days. Hers is an inspirational story, however. She is someone who has become very successful, famous, and influential, despite not having any actual skills. Now, she seems to be starved for attention and has decided to set herself up to have quite the feast.
It is now being reported that:
Hollywood star Kathy Griffin got some bad news when she finally went on the Chinese social media service TikTok. Griffin chronicled her attempt to learn how the site works only to discover young people in America and across the globe use the site to mock her and call her ugly. Ouch.
Kathy said: “I just spent the last hour trying to work that TicTac! I don’t know how to get verified. I don’t know how you can tell when a video was even posted. Are there trending news topics? I want weather updates and videos from political events.
“Am I stuck on this nightmare bird app? Ugh. I don’t understand any of it. This place definitely gets more vicious every day. I made a video backstage is a Jimmy Kimmel Live show and then I made one at my house where Taylor Lorenz was trying to explain how to use it and I talked about cryptocurrency.
“I have two of them (TikTok accounts).
“I think my real one actually has less followers but I’m not sure.
“It’s all very confusing.
“When I go on TikTok I don’t even see my profile page, it just starts playing videos.”
A couple of days later Kathy figured out the app and to her horror discovered what America thinks of her.
“Um, so on TikTok.
“Apparently youths make videos dedicated to how UGLY I AM & show photos of me.
“Oh, & there’s a song accompanying it called “look how ugly she is”
“Jesus, who has the time?”
She also took the time to go after Peter Thiel, a silicon valley legend and Republican donor.
“Ugh, OK gayz, I have avoided going in on Peter Thiel because many of my gayz don’t even know who he is.
“BUT, I encourage you to look this scary dude up. Between this and 23 and me, this crowd is trying to get a master race going.”
In prime victimhood form, Griffin also commented on the infamous Trump photo in July of this year. It was further reported by People that:
Speaking with The New York Times, the comedian, 61, said the outrage from the 2017 incident caused her to be ousted from Hollywood and her life has changed since. The photo showed Griffin with a mask of Trump’s severed head covered in ketchup.
“I wasn’t canceled,” Griffin said. “I was erased.”
Former President Donald Trump and his son Donald Trump Jr. reacted to Griffin’s viral photo as did Chelsea Clinton and Griffin’s former friend Anderson Cooper.
“I honestly never had a desire to make enemies,” Griffin shared. “But I keep making enemies.”
Prior to the scandal, she was performing several stand-up shows and executive produced her own show Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, which aired on Bravo from 2005-2010.
After the scandal, the actress was fired from her annual New Year’s Eve co-host job for CNN with Cooper and 25 theaters canceled her upcoming shows.
Rich and famous people making themselves out to be the victim is, of course, nothing new. People won’t soon forget the infamous spat between the always-controversial Milo Yiannopoulos and the perennially offended Leslie Jones. We also recently reported on Michele Obama’s comments regarding the, let’s call it less than lukewarm, response to her showtime show “The First Lady”, which was unceremoniously and forgettably canceled. She simply said that the ordeal was “incredibly hurtful.
In a separate, but related theme, we also reported on how actress Jennifer Lawrence actually said (as in, she said this, knowingly in public) that Tucker Carlson gave her nightmares.
