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.”

    she needs to stay away from plastic surgeons from now on and let her face be her face. we love her… she is very funny… but enough with the plastic surgery… cheek implants, lifts, no more. love her specials and her honesty… she is one of the few people left who do honest routines, so why have your face be false. No more face work, Kathy. No more.

    Disney is starting to get really really..i dont know how to explain it. Strict. Children arent going to know who Kathy Griffin is, or what she’s said.

    On another note;
    WHEN a Disney child star grows up, the actor can never get rid of that tag of a disney childs role model. Which i suppose isnt just Disneys fault, it’s the media and the public for not realising the actors are people too, they are gonna grow up.

    Somebody is really pissed, up there. How old is she anyway? On her age she should give more understanding to Miley and not give salt on the open wound. Her revenge towards Miley is cheap and not classy! If she is pissed, then she should direct it to Disney and not to Miley.

    Who is she, by the way?

    Nessa baby Says:

    Wow tha was totally uncalled for, just cause she didn’t get the job now she has to bring up Miley.She should be ashamed of herself for picking on her she’s 47 years old and Miley is 15, grow up women.

    I think Disney got it right if they did fire her for that disgusting comment. I don’t have a clue who or what this woman is, but as a Christian, I’m disgusted that she said such a thing and was not challenged on it. If she had insulted Mohammed the Muslim community would be up in arms. But yet Christians do absolutely nothing.

    I have any idea!!
    All you people that don’t know who these ‘celebrities’ are should stop looking at a celebrity gossip website.
    It is so annoying to listen to people say “who is she anyway?”
    Get with the times, JEEZ!!!!

    It’s SO NOT Miley’s fault so leave Miley alone.
    The bra photos are her personal buiss and she did not mean to hurt anybody
    and the “topless” was not horrible at all.

    joss Says:

    at least she finally exposed the nasty truth about miley…her racy photos and her topless pictures
    everyone sees the fake appearance of miley, the innocent and nothing wrong, but ofc we all know that miley is well beyond the innocent act and people should realized she’s just going to turn into another britney…accept the fact

    jamie Says:

    this is not the first time miley had racy photos, so you would think that she learned from her mistakes the first time…she’s 15, she should know what the consequences are when you take pictures like that and when they are leaked onto the internet…she must be pretty dumb to make the same mistakes 3 times…
    and even though it is her personal business, she has fans that are only 11 or 12 that look up to her as a role model…she kind of example i she setting? obviously not a good one…she needs to consider every aspects of her career if she wants the criticism to stop
