Kathy Griffin thinks Kevin Hart is a “p—-” for not attacking President Trump during his stand-up shows, despite being a “black man.”
Griffin, who is no stranger to controversy, attacked fellow comedian Hart in a new interview with USA Today.
“I do feel like this is such an anxiety-ridden time for everyone that there is a thirst for all kinds of comedy,” Griffin said. “And look, if you want to not hear about Trump at all, go see Kevin Hart. He doesn’t even mention Trump. I personally think that’s a p—- move because he’s a black man. But I guess he’s selling more tickets than I ever will.”
USA Today edited out the word in the article.
Last year, Griffin faced outrage after posing for a photo with a fake severed head that resembled Trump. She said she was contacted by the Secret Service and received death threats from angry Trump supporters.
Following the scandal, CNN fired her from her gig hosting the cable network’s annual New Year’s Eve special.
The comedian – who is known to fans as “Queen of the D-list” – also accused Hollywood of “blacklisting” her and said in a lengthy Facebook post that she couldn’t get work.
“I just want to make you laugh, even though I don’t have one single day of paid work ahead of me in the United States for the rest of my life,” she said. “That’s what blacklisting is.”
Griffin later apologized for the photo, but eventually walked the apology back.
She is currently in the midst of a career comeback, and kicked off her 23-show Laugh Your Head Off comedy tour today in San Francisco.
As for Hart, Forbes listed him as the world’s 6th highest paid comedian in 2017.
