Comedian Kathy Griffin Says She’s on a ‘Kill List’ Amid Continued Trump Photo Backlash


Continuing to point out the major backlash surrounding her photoshoot with President Donald Trump’s fake, decapitated head last year, Kathy Griffin is now insisting she’s on a “kill list.”

Having taken heat for the offensive photoshoot, the comedian took to Twitter on Monday to let everyone know “things have not gotten better for me.”

“In fact, I just found out I’m on a brand new ‘Kill List,’” she continued. “Constant death threats and threats of violence toward me in very specific ways. None of the social media platforms I need to make a living and sell my tour tickets will step in and help at all.”

Griffin blamed “Trump, and his game criminals, and the right leaning alt-right media” for her struggles because they “have not let up on me.”

“It is literally a relentless campaign,” she said. “Here’s some tea: Maybe fun for you to hear, but not fun for me to live.”

Griffin went on to attack several entertainment personalities and shows for refusing to work with her, including Ryan SeacrestStephen Colbert, and “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” and ended her thread by pointing out her defense of Michelle Wolf’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner set:

I wrote probably the most definitive defense of Michelle Wolf out there. It was a thread picked up by the Hill as well as HuffPost. Something no one (and I mean no one) of my stature did for me. Sorry, not sorry for the “of my stature”, certainly not in a timely fashion…I have not even heard a word from her. I stand by my defense of her because I have to. But you’re welcome everybody. Whew!
