Kathy Griffin Blames the Patriarchy for the Backlash to Her “Art”

Written by Joe Scudder

Reeling from the response to her Trump decapitation pic, Kathy Griffin blames everyone else for ruining her career.

It is not clear why Kathy Griffin blames people for having a negative reaction to her posing with a pretend decapitated head of Donald Trump. She herself admitted that she went “too far” to the picture. But despite apologizing, Kathy Griffin is now accusing the Trump family and others of “bullying,” for expressing their displeasure. But her other accusation is even more delusional.

CBS Los Angeles reports, “Kathy Griffin On Trump Photo Fallout: ‘He Broke Me.’

Griffin alleged that she is under Secret Service investigation for the image. Her attorneys went as far as to say she is under a criminal investigation. Griffin and her attorney, Lisa Bloom, were adamant that here actions were protected under the Constitution.

“You don’t have to like me, but you shouldn’t silence a comic,” Griffin said.

She also suggested the backlash had more to do with her gender than the content of the photo shoot.

“Cut the crap, this wouldn’t be happening to a guy,” she said.

“Kathy has a First Amendment right to make whatever provocative art she chooses,” Bloom said. “Whether or not you get, or like, her artistic expression, Kathy has the right to publicly parody the president.”

Kathy Griffin blames sexism for her troubles!
