Before the show began co-host Cooper tweeted, “I want to apologize in advance to anyone @kathygriffin pokes fun of/makes out with/strips down in front of/punches.”
On Monday night’s show from Times Square in New York City, Griffin told Cooper she was going to “tickle his sack.”
Later, Griffin repeatedly bent down and put her face near Cooper’s crotch while he tried to push her away and carry on with the broadcast.
Some viewers on Twitter and YouTube were stunned by the comedian’s antics, although it’s not the first time she’s raised eyebrows on the annual special.
“Poor guy… Actually poor program for New Year’s eve. Tasteless,” wrote a YouTube user identified as kbsmb on Tuesday.
Another wrote, “To act like that on national television is completely inappropriate. Not to mention idiotic,'” starbuck4774 said.
There is this group of Female Comedians that are more crude than any male comedian I have ever listened to. There are various degrees of comedy, and even “off -colour” can be funny.
However,there are some that are just pure vulgar, who will attempt cheap laughs by delving into the most degrading things. It is not funny, its just for shock value and cheap publicity stunts. Prior to this point, she had stripped down to her underwear.
Anderson Cooper admitted he was gay recently. Now we have a female , Kathy Griffin, making a joke and then acting on it. Clearly anyone in Cooper’s position would feel awkward and humiliated as millions of people were watching.
As per usual in this screwed up society, it the roles were reversed and he tried to perform a similar act on her, my guess is his career is over and possible criminal charges. Double standard?
Ms Griffin? ……..live off more notoriety and plan here next porn- stunt in public.
