Kathy Griffin went hot on Wednesday following a political tweet that some social media watchdogs are now calling “menacing.”
The controversial comedian plunged into the fiery pits of Twitter when she suggested that if Americans are to endure a fatal historic setback, they should vote red in the upcoming election.
“If you don’t want a civil war, vote for Democrats in November. If you want civil war, vote Republican,” Griffin, 61, wrote Tuesday and sparked a viral debate in the comments.
People weren’t happy with their statements, which ignited a jumble of responses from others.
“That’s wrong. The mad Hollywood left is threatening a ‘civil war’ if Dems doesn’t win. Unfortunately, that’s today’s left: angry, hateful and violent,” said Texas Senator Ted Cruz tweeted In response.
The Christian author Jeremy Kappell interfered: “The inherent message here could not be clearer. If you don’t vote Democrat, there will be war. King George III had a similar message to the colonists just before our independence. Don’t let Hollywood propagandists bully you.”
“SICK. @kathygriffin threatens civil war if people vote Republican. Will Twitter be banned? This is the same person who encouraged violence against Trump by holding a bloodied model of his head,” the online commentator Yossi Gestetner addedreferring to the infamous 2017 photo of Griffin posing with a ketchup-smeared likeness of former President Donald Trump.
“Sooo… Kathy Griffin is now threatening civil war on behalf of the Democrats if the Republicans win… Got it,” wrote Tim Young added.
in one follow up tweet, the Emmy- and Grammy-winning My Life on the D-List star explained, “You guys. The maga blue checks are back. Because they keep threatening civil war, they’re now trying to suggest that I’m the one threatening civil war. Because you know, that’s my thing.”
However, there were others who supported her statements. “People willfully misunderstanding what Kathy Griffin tweeted is so 2022.” said one user, alongside a snap of a Trump fan wearing a MAGA Civil War January 6, 2021 jacket. “She says the reps WANT a civil war and the dems don’t. It’s not a threat, it’s an observation.”
“MAGA Republicans are upset that Kathy Griffin has labeled them domestic terrorists, and now they’re playing the victim card by insisting they call for civil war,” said one commenter wrotewhile another thrown in: “A lot of the people who said not to dwell on what Kathy Griffin was saying are suddenly giving massive ss about what Kathy Griffin said. Good for you.”
