Comedian Kathy Griffin posted a truly shocking video this week in which she, from her lavish hotel room, proclaimed that she hasn’t been able to get work since the infamous Trump beheading photo she posed for, and therefore that makes her the most victimized woman in American history.
“I think I should be able to get my life back. I know I took a picture that offended a lot of people, but this wall of crap has never fallen on any woman in the history of America like it has on me,” Griffin said. She wasn’t kidding either, she acknowledged the hypocrisy and still doubled down on the charge.
After claiming she has no paid work in front of her, she also admits that she could work at smaller clubs, but that is essentially beneath her at this point.
“I don’t mean to be an a**hole, but no. I’m not going to do that. I’ve worked way to hard… to do the club scene again, because I’ve been blacklisted,” she said.
So, instead of working her way back into the good graces of the industry, she doesn’t want to atone for the mistakes she’s made and pay the price – she just feels she’s entitled to no suffer any consequences for pretend chopping the President’s head off.
Here are her bizarre remarks:
Ben Shapiro brought it up today on his eponymous show, and while he was incredulous over her claims, he pointed to a larger problem with society that definitely needs to be heard more often: moral relativism.
What we’re seeing today – the sexual harassments, the abuse, the mistreatment of people – all boils down to a lack of moral grounding.
“There is no rooted morality that says you as a human being are worth more than this, woman and men. That you have a soul, you have an immortal soul, and you are required by God, by nature, you are required to treat other humans with respect and decency because they are worthy of respect and decency. We’re an entertainment culture that treats people like disposable commodities, then we’re shocked when people are treated like disposable commodities.”
He is 100% correct. Not only does living in an ‘anything goes’ society open the door to disturbing behaviors, it also provides no firm ground to say something is indeed wrong. And so, when Hollywood continually glorifies objectification of women, violence, and worse – we should not be surprised when someone actually believes it is okay to behave in that manner. And we (society) should certainly not be allowed to complain about it, when both the worldview and our actions clearly indicate there is no basis for morality.
So, who’s standard should set the mark for society. Government? A sports figure? Or perhaps… God?

Kathy Griffin says she's the most victimized woman in America. She's not.
