In light of all the news this week, and there was a lot of it, it’s worth reading Kathy Griffin’s thoughts and experiences over the past year — one year after photos of her holding a (fake) decapitated Trump head hit the internet. She posted a 52-tweet thread to Twitter this week, and subsequently turned it into a Twitter moment as well, that details her actions, her experiences, and her takeaways from it all.

She’s quick to acknowledge, “I am in a position of tremendous privilege. I have access to resources that allowed me to deal with this in a way others who aren’t as privileged couldn’t have. And that’s exactly why I’m speaking out, I don’t want this to happen to someone who doesn’t have my resources.”

An interesting tidbit to come out of her words is that the controversial image was actually semi-inspired by Megyn Kelly, of all people.

“So the mask photo was meant to be a play on those sexist comments about Megyn..’blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever..’ FYI, I am no Megyn Kelly fan, she has made horrible racist remarks, but there’s no doubt Trump’s comments about her were sexist.”
