Kathy Griffin had her career upended when a photo — that she insists was a joke — made the rounds on the internet. She stated that she didn’t mean to take it too seriously, but it was too late. “I sincerely apologize,”She stated at the time, “Persevere!” Entertainment Weekly. “I am just now seeing the reaction of these images. … I went way too far. The image is too disturbing. I understand how it offends people. It wasn’t funny. I get it.”
But she feels it was unfair that Andy Cohen wasn’t given the same punishment after he made a joke on former New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s New Year’s Eve show. “The only thing that Democrats and Republicans can agree on is what a horrible mayor he has been,” Cohen said. “So sayonara, sucka!”However, the network stood by him and said that “we’ve addressed it with him and look forward to having him back again next year,”per People.
Griffin believes that their current situation is a good one. “apples to apples,”Cohen should have been punished the same. According to Cohen, she did more than being canceled. “I wasn’t canceled,”She shared her story The New York Times. “I was erased.”
