Naive screen comedian Kathy Griffin discovered last week that there are limits to what can be intended as edgy, irreverent ‘comedy’ as she posed for a photo holding aloft the severed, bloody head of President Donald Trump….presumably, for a joke.
Sadly for Griffin, nobody laughed. As the internet indignation grew, CNN terminated her steady, New Years Eve co-host job with Anderson Cooper. Four November comedy shows were cancelled in Northeastern states as well as a gig at a New Mexico casino. Griffin lost her endorsement deal with Squatty Potty.
As the Trump camp mobilised, she says, to “ruin” her life, our Harry couldn’t help take pen to paper to examine this international scandal first hand.
