Kathy Griffin Ignites Feud With Ellen DeGeneres, Calls Her "Untalented Hack"

The View / Smooth

As you know, in Tinseltown feuds aren't something only seen on the silver screen.

While some celebrities are known for their good nature and good deeds, there are others who just love to stir up controversy.

One of the these people is Kathy Griffin, a vulgar comedian who has caused plenty of waves in the past.

In May 2017, Griffin received massive backlash after she posted a graphic picture of herself holding up a prop of severed, bloody head of Donald Trump.

Not only did Griffin get dropped by her representation, have her tour dates cancelled, and was fired by CNN and Squatty Potty, she allegedly said she was under a federal investigation by the Justice Department and put on the No Fly List for two months.

Now the Fashion Police star is back to the dramatics as she comes for another A-list celebrity, this time Ellen DeGeneres.

Although the talk show host is known for her kindness and hilarity, Griffin called DeGeneres a "untalented hack" in an interview with Variety, stemming from the DeGeneres' feelings towards Griffin's close friend, the late Joan Rivers.

"One of the things that really hurt Joan, and we talked about it at our last meal together, was that Ellen always shunned her and Ellen thought she was vulgar and not funny," Griffin said, adding that when Rivers passed away, she decided to reach out to her fellow comedian.

"I just called her and I just said, 'Look, woman to woman, comic to comic, I think you need to let go of your hatred for Joan Rivers. She's passed away, just do a f"”king tribute, be cool,'" Griffin said.

However, DeGeneres, who Griffin said also thinks she's too vulgar, refused to do a tribute, and said "there's a difference between mean and funny," with Rivers being the latter.

According to Griffin, she didn't take DeGeneres response well, and lashed out.

"That f"”ing set me off," she explained. "So we had a fight in which I used inflammatory words like, 'Look you f"”ing untalented hack.' ... You know when you're fighting with someone and you can kind of laugh at a point? Yeah, not that day."

However, the Emmy Award-winning comedian said after a few days she decided to reach out to DeGeneres and apologize, but never heard back.

"It was so Dynasty that I demand to be Alexis as long as you're Krystle," Griffin shared. "I think we should do a scene in the pool, I think there should be big hats [and] that b*tch didn't even respond! But that was a good idea!"

Who's side are you on, DeGeneres or Griffin? Let us know!
