This time, he’s got Kathy Griffin in his sights. The “Life on the D-List” star won an Emmy last week, and in her thank you/acceptance speech, had this to say:
“Can you believe this shit? I guess hell froze over. … a lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus. So, all I can say is, ‘suck it, Jesus.’ This award is my god now.”
And Bill Donohue’s ears must have started ringing or turned red or something. Because he flew into an outrage over the speech calling it “hate speech.” And guess what? The TV Academy has listened and will be censoring Griffin’s speech when it airs on E!. Because Bill Donohue should be exactly the voice of reason that networks turn to when thinking about vulgarity.
Is Jezebel next?
