Kathy Griffin is in a lot of trouble after scandalous Donald Trump beheading photo. If the reports are to be believed, then the popular television host will have to face jail time. Griffin is already contacted by Secret Services.
The photographer who took Trump’s beheading photo, Tyler Shields, revealed during a recent interview that she is not afraid to take a political stand. According to Shields, Kathy Griffin does not wish to go to jail and is looking for bail as soon as possible.
“[Kathy Griffin was] not afraid to get political if you want or make a statement if you want… This was her first thought, ‘Will you bail me out of jail?'”
The 56-year-old comic held a live press conference, where she cried and laughed off the president of the United States. Griffin has apologized for the gruesome photo shoot but believes that she can deal with Donald Trump.
Kathy added that she is not afraid of Donald Trump and is going to make more fun of the POTUS now. She even called the Trump administration “a bunch of nut jobs.”
“I’m not afraid of Donald Trump. He’s a bully. I’ve dealt with older white guys trying to keep me down my whole life, my whole career. I’m a woman in a very male-dominated field… I get what I am. I’m the shiny object. I’m the shiny object so that nobody’s talking about his FBI investigation… I’m not laying down for this guy. I’m going to make fun of him. It’s a good time to be a comedian. It’s scary to be a citizen. I wish the president would govern instead of trying to do whatever it is he’s trying to do.”
The comic’s attorney Lisa Bloom has also called out the president. She said that Donald Trump should apologize for hating women so much. She even took a hit at Trump’s youngest 11-year-old son, Barron Trump, blaming him for watching non-filtered content.
“It was a parody of Trump’s own sexist remarks taken to an extreme, absurdist visual. It is Trump who should apologize… for being the most woman-hating and tyrannical president in history… It is not the job of a comic to filter everything down for an 11-year-old.”
The Donald Trump’s beheading photo shoot has clearly affected Kathy Griffin’s career. Many of her contracts have been canceled, and she has to face rejection from many big companies now. The New Jersey venue The State Theatre said it canceled her November show “after careful consideration of recent events and for the safety of our patrons.”
According to Los Angeles Times, Griffin’s Celebrity Run-Ins tour has been canceled, and even her venues including Mexico, Nevada, California, New Jersey and New York have all canceled. The comic believes that her career is over now and Trump is trying to destroy her using all possible personal means.
“I don’t think I will have a career after this. I’m going to be honest. He broke me. And this isn’t right. I apologized because that was the right thing to do, and I meant it.
While many believe that including Barron Trump in the whole controversy is just not right, Kathy Griffin’s past remarks have come back to haunt her. In a 2009 tweet, Griffin used an offensive term to refer to former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s son, Trig, who was born with Down syndrome. During the same year, she even used the f-word while reporting about a 6-year-old boy Falcon. She even made fun of Dakota Fanning, when the actress was only 10 years old, joking that she had entered rehab.
