Bitter Kathy Griffin plays up the victim card, attacks fellow celebs at Writers Guild Awards

Misery loves company.

Comedian Kathy Griffin went into a vulgar rant at the 2018 Writers Guild Awards Sunday night, accusing the Hollywood insiders in attendance of failing to support her after a photo in which she appeared holding a fake severed head resembling President Trump cost her employment with CNN last year.

“It’s me, Kathy Griffin — I got a haircut and I lost my career in a day. Hi!,” said the actress, according to the Daily Caller.

Griffin was at the Beverly Hills, California event to present an animation award at the ceremony that honored the best writing in film, television, and radio in 2017.

“I just want to thank all the powerful writers and showrunners in this room for f***ing no support,” she continued. “Where the f*** have you been?…I was supposed to thank everyone for their support, and no one [lifted] their finger.”

Later on Sunday, Griffin tweeted a picture of herself at her first red carpet appearance since the severed head scandal, writing “Feels great to be back.”

The scandalous photo led to Griffin’s dismissal from CNN’s New Year’s Eve coverage, a job she had held since 2009.

The comedian originally apologized for the stunt, but later walked back on her apology, claiming the president “broke” her.

In November, Griffin claimed to be on the “blacklist” and lamented she didn’t have “one single day of paid work in front of me.”

In December, the entertainer said she’s unable to do a comedy tour in the US “without getting shot.”

Maybe one of these days Griffin’s finger-pointing will lead her to a mirror.
