Kathy Griffin Goes After Andy Cohen, Harvey Levin and More in INSANE Rant!

by at .

Kathy Griffin has some things to say.

And, as you'll see, that's actually a massive, massive understatement.

Back in May, as you'll surely remember, Kathy did a photo shoot in which she held the decapitated head of Donald Trump -- a Halloween mask covered in ketchup.

It caused quite a stir: she was fired from multiple gigs, and she was even the subject of a federal investigation.

Shortly after sharing the photo, she apologized, explaining that sometimes with comedy, lines can be crossed, and this was one of those times.

But in the months since, she's retracted her apology because "The whole thing got so blown out of proportion."

She said that the photo didn't only cost her jobs, but friends began turning against her, she and her family started getting death threats.

And now, five months later, she's still dealing with the backlash.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Andy Cohen would be replacing Kathy on CNN's New Year's Eve special, and when Andy was asked about it by TMZ, he replied with "Who? I don't know her."

Meaning that he didn't know Kathy -- you know that classic Mariah Carey move.

Except that Andy and Kathy definitely know each other, since she had a show on Bravo for years. She addressed that in a pointed tweet.

"Even when it's on tape, there are doubters?" she wrote. "He is NOT kidding w paps. Was my boss for 10 years. Treated me like a dog. Deeply misogynistic."

She was so upset by Andy's words that she did a 17 minute video in which she went after him, TMZ boss Harvey Levin, and all the people she's ever interacted with in her career that did her dirty.

She kicks the video off by explaining that the fallout from the Trump photo is still going on, and it's actually gotten worse.

To prove that, she shares a voicemail she'd gotten from Harvey -- he asked her to call him back for a chat and left his phone number, which she doesn't disguise at all in the video.

The reason for releasing his phone number, she says, is because after the Trump photo was released, she was doxxed mercilessly -- and she feels that since Harvey is "in bed with everybody from Hollywood to Donald Trump," he deserves similar treatment.

From there, she jumps on to Andy Cohen, who she says was a "miserable boss" during her years at Bravo.

She mocks him a bit for being an executive who then gave himself his own talk show -- "seems to get picked up every season," she joked.

After that, Kathy jumps back to Harvey for a moment -- she seems a little scatterbrained throughout the video, honestly, but we can't really blame her.

She claims that Tyler Shields, the photographer who took the photo, told her that two different people from TMZ told him that Harvey speaks with Trump multiple times a week.

"Is that OK with you guys?" she asks. "The president talking to a gossip blogger?"

Back to Andy, Kathy alleges that the two times she appeared on Watch What Happens Live, he offered her cocaine before filming began. So there's that.

Kathy Griffin is an Idiot

About TMZ, she says that the website itself is extremely misogynistic, and that ageism is a big problem, too.

"Harvey Levin, have you ever done anything honorable, ever?" she asks. "What do you do besides tear women down and make a bunch of money?"

She actually refers to him as "the gay male version of Kellyanne Conway."

All throughout the video, she names people -- not famous people, just people she's worked with in the industry -- who she feels let her down in some way.

After all this, at the end of the video, she explains that she recorded it in the first place because she's currently on a world tour, and she's leaving Australia soon for Singapore.

She's been advised that she's on multiple international lists, and that she's been detained at every airport she's been to in recent months.

"So when I go to Singapore, if I just don't return, I just want you guys to know, that's why. Because I took a picture of a mask with ketchup on it."
