Kathy Griffin Says Her Own Driver Threatened to Harm Her

Kathy Griffin revealed that she is still getting death threats because of the infamous photo she took holding a Donald Trump mask dripping with what appeared to be fake blood.

While the comedian is back to work and making millions of dollars on tour around the world, she still isn’t getting TV jobs.

“I don’t have a single day of paid work on television ahead of me for the rest of my life,” she said in an interview with CBS Sunday Morning.

Kathy also said that one of the threats she received recently came from a surprising person.

“I was in London a month ago and I had a driver who took myself and my assistant from London Heathrow to the hotel, and he recognized me from the photo and he said that he was from Morocco and that if we were in Morocco he would cut my tongue off,” she said. With a laugh she added, “So, that was a long drive!”

Kathy says she “called the president of the company and had him fired.”

    Says the woman who bullied a 19 year old Muslim woman that she didn’t know what being bullied meant.

    You are not a good person Griffin. We all saw what you did to her.

    And something tells me this story of yours isn’t completely true.

    Maybe she doesn’t get work because she’s not that funny? I find it hard to believe she’s making millions on tour.

    The first time I saw her was in the 90s. She wasn’t funny then and has only got worse since. I do think people went overboard condemning her with death threats etc but she has caused a lot of trouble herself with it too.

    She’s a disgusting human being and not funny in the least!

    i hate trump, too, but freedom of speech has it’s limits. and what she did was shitty. she’s getting what she deserves. the “land of the free” is fake news and we can’t just say and do what we want. try living in a 3rd world country, sweetie, and see how that works out for you. you’d be dead within a week acting like you do.
