Kathy Griffin Complains: 'I Don't Have One Single Day of Paid Work'

"I'm fully in the middle of a blacklist, a Hollywood blacklist," remarked Kathy Griffin in a recent video that she posted on YouTube. "It is real. I am not booked for any talk shows. I'm selling tickets worldwide which is really hard when you don't have any kind of a television platform and kind of nobody has your back." 

Griffin, 57, has taken a serious career plunge after posing with a beheaded photo of President Trump. The picture caused an outrage on both social and television media, and in the aftermath of the incident, Griffin has seen a serious plunge in her career as a television personality and comedian. Republicans and Democrats alike thought that the picture was distasteful, and they were even more offended by the reaction of Griffin herself — although she was apologetic at first, she quickly changed her tone. 

In fact, despite being bogged down by a whirlwind of negative media reports after displaying herself with a decapitated head of Trump in May, she has expressed that she is "no longer sorry." Rather than thinking that the negative press was a result of posing with a photo that was extremely distasteful, she now believes that attacks come because she is a feminist, a woman, and a critic of Trump.

And she wants everybody to know that she doesn't have a single day of paid work. This is problematic, she says, considering that her legal bills are currently through the roof. 

For now, she has decided that her short-term goal is for younger women, younger LGBT persons, and other "disenfranchised" persons to watch her survive this media blacklisting with a sense of humor. 

"I still say the end goal is for younger women and younger LGBT folks or disenfranchised people of any kind can watch me survive, and with a sense of humor," she said.

On top of all this, Griffin wants everybody to know that despite what "trolls" on the internet are saying about her, she "has not lost her mind." But she has lost her career as a comedian and dreads what will happen at the end of her current tour.
