“I just want you guys to know I’m fully in the middle of a blacklist”
Remember back in May of this year when “comedian” Kathy Griffin thought it’d be funny to hold up Trump’s severed head in a photo shoot? #TheResistance: Kathy Griffin Holds Decapitated Trump Head in Photoshoot
It turns out that decision hasn’t worked out well for her career. Who could have guessed?
Griffin is currently on tour in Europe but recently published a video on YouTube in which she claims she has no work lined up in the U.S. when she returns.

Kathy Griffin: I’ve Been Blacklisted And ‘Forces’ Are Against Me
In the clip, Griffin complains she is being blacklisted in the U.S. and says no one wants to have her on television anymore…
“I just want to be honest,” Griffin said. “As far as what we’re going through and hoping this is a turning point for feminism and women’s equality, I just want you to know that at 57, for me it’s not a marathon, it’s a sprint,” she added…
“I just want you guys to know I’m fully in the middle of a blacklist,” Griffin said. She continued, “I am in the middle of a Hollywood blacklist. It is real. I am not booked on any talk shows.” “When I get home I do not have one single day of paid work in front of me,” she added.
Griffin later veered off into borderline paranoia saying, “There’s a lot of forces coming against people like me that are trying to do something.” She added, “I mean, look at Harvey Weinstein hired Kroll…and some company called Black Cube to, like, follow Rose McGowan. So, you know, I’m kind of assuming I’m next. I’m already on the Interpol list and all this other stuff.”
Watch the video below:
Whether or not Griffin has truly been blacklisted will become apparent when she returns to the United States. What we do know is that she recently sold her house in the Hollywood Hills for less than the original asking price which suggests she may have financial difficulties.
Mark David reports at Variety:
Beleaguered Insult Comic Kathy Griffin Sold Former Hollywood Hills Home (EXCLUSIVE)
After more than a year on the market, beleaguered insult comedian Kathy Griffin, wrapping up a world tour, sold “Wings,” her former mansion in the Hollywood Hills for $4,492,500, substantially below the original asking price of $5.495 million but still a small fortune above the $2.85 million she paid for the dramatically sited residence in the spring of 2004.
The three-story, elevator-equipped mansion, behind gates and positioned high above the street with panoramic canyon views, has five bedrooms, six bathrooms and six fireplaces in 8,098 square feet.
