CNN: Kathy Griffin New Years Eve (Video)

January 2, 2009

While broadcasting live with Anderson Cooper for New Years Eve on CNN, Kathy Griffin gave some hecklers an uncensored piece of her mind. Read the rest of the story and see photos and video of Kathy Griffin below.

Kathy Griffin was hosting CNN’s New Years Eve celebration and broadcast in New Orleans with newsman Anderson Cooper. She was making her typical off-color remarks all night, which seemed to make Anderson mildly uncomfortable. My favorites were her saying she wanted a pap smear from Dr. Sanjay Gupta and her calling former CNN host Glenn Beck a “heroin addict Mormon.”

Well after the ball dropped in Times Square at midnight, however, is when things got really good. She and Anderson were talking about an upcoming job Kathy had, which was previously hosted by Star Jones. As Anderson was making fun of her, someone off camera started heckling Kathy. While Anderson was trying to cut to commercial, and the camera was pulling away to a generic outdoor shot, Kathy’s mic was still on and she was definitely giving the heckler a piece of her mind. She said:

“Screw you. Why don’t you get a job, buddy? You know what? I don’t go to your job and knock the dick out of your mouth.”

Unfortunately for CNN’s West coast viewers, Kathy’s awesome remarks were edited out of the rebroadcast. Apparently, CNN has an issue with the word “dick.” Back in 2007 when doing a story on the hilarious Justin Timberlake SNL skit “dick in a box,” they called the skit “blank in a box.”

Luckily, however, youtube has saved the day, and her tirade can be heard uncensored and in full! Check it out below.
