Kathy Griffin bemoaned that she can’t get any work in the U.S. and said she’s in the “middle of a Hollywood blacklist” after taking the infamous bloody beheaded photo of President Donald Trump.
“I’m getting a lot of online hate from trolls who think I’ve lost my mind. And I am admitting I lost my mind because it’s what made me a star in the first place,” the 57-year-old comedian shared in a video posted on YouTube Saturday titled, “State of the Union.”
“At 57, I don’t have a lot of time to be patient. Don’t be too hard on me. I’m fully in the middle of a Hollywood blacklist,” she added. “I just want you guys to know, when I get home, I do not have one single day of paid work in front of me.”
“And people that want me to go back and start in [comedy] clubs and do ten minutes again, I don’t mean to be an asshole, but no. I’m not going to do that,” she continued. “I’ve worked way too hard to go back and work for free and do the club scene again…this is the bullshit, because I’ve been blacklisted.”
