The comedian stopped by the talk show to chat about her recent change in employment and made some shocking statements about the show that she spent only seven episodes on after agreeing to replace the late, great Joan Rivers — and in typical form, she did not hold back.
Griffin explained that she has evolved as a comic and her current style is “a little different than what felt to me sort of like a dog pile.” Ouch!
She also said the show was antifeminist, and she kinda has a point.
“I was being forced to comment about pictures of beautiful women in perfect dresses and say kind of bad things,” she said. “As a feminist and a comic, it just didn’t feel like the right fit for me… on the red carpet, all these women look so great. I was hoping we could talk about the events themselves and the shows, so I didn’t want to say that Meryl Streep didn’t look great, because she looked great.
“I go for behavior as stuff to play with,” she explained, adding, “In my repertoire, I’ve said heinous things — I’m well aware of that, trust me!
“There’s a lot of stuff I’ve said before that I wouldn’t say now… comedy has to evolve.”
