Kathy Griffin: Fired From Hannah Montana For Telling Jesus to Suck It

Comedian Kathy Griffin tells EW that she was fired from the hit Miley Cyrus Disney Channel series, Hannah Montana.

Griffin, 47, says Disney killed her appearance because she said “Suck it, Jesus! This award is my god now!” at last year’s Creative Arts Emmys.

“I was fired from Hannah Montana for my ‘suck it Jesus’ remark,” Griffin says. “Which I can tell you now that Miley Cyrus has been flashing her green bra and posing topless. I was basically told, ‘Disney doesn’t want you anywhere near the building,’”.

A Disney spokesperson had another story: “With all casting decisions, a ‘pass’ or ‘accept’ is ultimately a creative decision. The ‘pass’ on Kathy Griffin in a particular guest role had nothing to do with comedy routines or public comments.”
