Sorry, Kathy Griffin.
But Demi Lovato is not sorry.
Nor is she having any part of your lame press conference.
On Friday afternoon, Griffin sat alongside her attorney and whined about the way Donald Trump and his family have treated her over the past few days.
Both the President, his kids and his wife have had some choice words for the comedian after she posed for a photo shoot during which she held a bloody, decapitated head of the Commander-in-Chief.
Both Donald and Melania Trump called out Griffin for traumatizing their 11-year old son with this pictorial, while those from both sides of the aisle have also slammed Griffin.
In her press conference yesterday, Griffin accused Trump and his family members of “bullying” her and “trying to ruin my life forever, telling reporters:
“I don’t think I will have a career after this. I think he … I’m going to be honest, he broke me. He broke me, and then I was like, ‘No, this isn’t right.'”
Griffin may be right about the whole career-ending thing.
She has lost one sponsorship deal and been fired by CNN.
But nearly everyone thinks she deserves it, considering the inappropriate, offensive, ridiculous nature of her actions here.
(Everyone except Jim Carrey, that is, who has stood up for Griffin.)
“There’s a bunch of old white guys trying to silence me, and I’m just hear to say that’s wrong,” Griffin said on Friday, adding:
“You don’t have to like me, but you shouldn’t silence a comic.”
This is a strange line of defense, in our opinion.
FIRST, you need to be funny in order to be a comedian, don’t you? So Griffin doesn’t really fit the description.
SECOND, why would comedians be free to say and do whatever they want?
THIRD, no one is silencing Griffin. She may utter anything she likes and pose for any photos she wants. But, like anyone else, she also prepare for consequences as a result.
And that’s where Lovato comes in.
Someone who has often spoken out against bullying, the singer clearly is angry that Griffin is trying to play the victim card.
She effed up. She has apologized and claims to know she effed up… so what the heck is Kathy talking about?!?
“I find it funny when bullies play the victims,” Lovato Tweeted shortly after Griffin’s press conference, adding:
“Oops. I spilled my tea.”
Point. Game. Match, Demi Lovato, right?
It’s hard to find fault with her simple message and logic here.
This isn’t the first time Lovato and Griffin had a spat on social media, either.
In March of 2014, the stars feuded on Twitter after Griffin was asked to call out the “biggest douche celebrity,” responding at the time:
Will Griffin call another press conference next week to yell at Lovato?
Or will she maybe come to the realization that she should shut the heck up? And that she’s only digging her grave deeper and deeper?
And that she’s just flat out wrong in this case and is only helping the other political side by using her platform in this manner?
Seriously, Katrhy Griffin.
