The controversial comedian slammed none other than Ellen DeGeneres and explained why she did it! Kathy Griffin talked about her and Joan Rivers’ beef with the famous talk show host.
According to the funny woman, she once called Ellen an ‘untalented hack.’
During a number at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, Griffin revealed that in the past she got into a huge fight with Ellen after her close friend, Rivers, passed away.
Page Six reported that she said: ‘One of the things that hurt Joan, and that we talked about it at our last meal together, was that Ellen had always shunned her because she thought she was vulgar and not funny.’
But after the woman died, Kathy attempted to get Ellen to do a tribute to Rivers on her show.
‘I just called her and just said, ‘Look, woman to woman, comic to comic, I think you need to give up your hatred for Joan Rivers. She has passed away, just do a f***ing tribute, be cool.’
However, Ellen simply said that there was a huge difference between being funny and mean which angered Kathy to no measure.
That is when she exploded and proceeded to call Ellen all kind of things during their fight, including ‘untalented hack.’
The following days however, she couldn’t stop thinking about their exchange and so, she decided to text her what she felt.
It seems like she suggested for them to make peace but Ellen never even replied.
It’s apparent that Kathy Griffin is pretty much still upset about their fight as she called Ellen a ‘b***’ during her show.
Do you think the two women will ever bury the hatchet? Who do you think was in the wrong?
