Griffin’s photoshoot became an instant source of controversy this week, and it was strongly condemned from figures on both sides of the political aisle. The backlash has cost Griffin celebrity endorsement deals, public events, and her New Years Eve co-hosting job with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
Yes, you have the right to free speech and expression, but you don’t the right from facing the consequences.
So much for apologies Kathy… Kathy Griffin told Vulture at the Equality Now Gala Tuesday night. “For me, that’s Trump and all things Trump. It’s not about trying to be an equal-opportunity offender anymore because Hillary got such a beat down. It’s his turn. So I’m happy to deliver beat down to Donald Trump — and also to Barron. You know a lot of comics are going to go hard for Donald, my edge is that I’ll go direct for Barron. I’m going to get in ahead of the game.”
