Comedian Kathy Griffin is suggesting that sexism is stopping her from getting back to D-list status in the years since her infamous ISIS-esque photoshoot posing with a bloody head of then-President Donald Trump in 2017.
Maybe Zucker should refer her to Harvey Weinstein for work. She says that she tried to commit suicide back in 2020.
“I wrote a note to Randy and then I took a bunch of pills, and I just thought I would go to sleep,” she said. “I really thought he’d be better off without me, that the world would be.” The world agrees.
“I just want to get back to making people laugh,” she said. Hey Kathy, see immediately above.
“He (Zucker) started yelling at me and he literally said something like, ‘Who do you think you are calling here demanding a raise?’ And then something came over me. And I just lost it. I just started screaming. I’m Kathy [beep!] Griffin, Jeff, that’s who I am,” Griffin told the New York Times.
After that, Zucker fired her. But later, when Griffin called CNN president begging him to take her back, he rehired her, but with a 20 percent pay cut. How not to negotiate a pay raise.
