Comedian Kathy Griffin, 60, Emotionally Fires Back at Trolls Mocking Her Curly Hair
American reality star Kathy Griffin eloquently clapped back at trolls making fun of her bright curly hair recently. She also once shocked fans with a bold look for a good cause.
Comedian Kathy Griffin, 60, emotionally fired back at trolls mocking her curly hair. She shared a heartfelt video addressing the issue on Instagram and captioned it:
“This is how it grows out of my head!”
“Alright, I’m making this video because I’ve been getting some social media hate because of my curly hair,” she explained in the clip that she posted on July 24.
Griffin continued: “A lot of, ‘Girl, you’ve got to get rid of that hair.’ A lot of, ‘Girl, we don’t like your hair like that,’” she stated while adding, “Well, this is how my hair grows out of my head.”
She shared it has always been like that and will always be that way, “I’m a… curly-haired, red-headed lady. I’m not saying my days of blowouts are over. I’m just asking you to accept me for my curly-haired self,” the actress said.
Her striking blue eyes stood out in the bright-lit setting of a close-up of her with her gorgeous red locks in full view in the video.
Despite the negative comments that she has been receiving, other fans had something nice to say about her look. They took to the comments section with one person applauding her for rocking her natural look while noting she herself also has curly hair like Griffin.
"Love it! I'm embracing my curly hair this year too. If people don't like it, not our problem, right??" the user commented. One follower said, "It's beautiful! Who's saying it's not for heaven's sake?!"
According to Hollywoodlife, the Primetime Emmy Award-winning reality star frequently flaunts her hair on social media and always rocks the look with confidence and style.
Although she has naturally curly hair, there have been times when she would rock straighter locks, but she appears to be embracing her natural look nowadays.
Back in 2017, she made headlines when she shaved her head to stand in solidarity with her sister Joyce Griffin as she underwent chemotherapy while battling cancer.
She shared a series of images on Twitter of her posing solo and topless in front of bushes outdoors, beaming with pride and holding her right hand on her bare head. Her late mother described her as “an amazing human being” for that.
Apart from tending to haters who criticize her look, Griffin is an accomplished veteran actress who made her first big-screen debut in the low-budget horror film "The Unborn" (1991). Her career spans over 30 years in showbiz.
She is also a reality TV star in her own right and has been numerously nominated for Emmys for her reality show, "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List," and ultimately won two of them between 2007 and 2008. Griffin won Primetime Emmys for the Outstanding Reality Program.
The Illinois native also appeared as a nurse on rapper Eminem's 2000 video for "The Real Slim Shady" and has lent her voice to several animated projects, including the UPN series "Dilbert" and "Shrek Forever After" (2010).
Griffin once won $233,000 on ABC’s "Celebrity Mole Hawaii" and has hosted NBC’s “Average Joe.” Speaking of money, the A-lister is also good with finances.
A Forbes contributor shared back in March 2019 how Griffin got candid about her finances and that even with the challenges she faced, she is still “financially wiser” like never before.
A practical example of that is her not having a mortgage. Griffin lives in a 13,000 square feet estate located in the expensive neighborhood of Bel-Air.
She reportedly paid $10.5 million for the mansion and paid for some renovations. The “Pulp Fiction” star took it up a notch by paying for the abode without a mortgage.
Griffin is smart with money because her mother Maggie Griffin taught her very well by imparting financial knowledge to her.
A story about an older woman who lost everything and could only afford cat food to eat is what motivated the 99-year-old to start saving and make smart financial decisions. Sadly, Maggie died in March 2020.
