    Emmys will edit Kathy Griffin’s offensive speech

    ** warning, offensive language **

    Even though Kathy Griffin won her first Emmy over the weekend, she’ll still have something to talk about in her act. That’s because when the Creative Arts Emmys are broadcast Saturday on E!, her acceptance speech will be censored.

    Upon winning this past Saturday, Kathy said, “Can you believe this ****? I guess hell froze over. … a lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus. So, all I can say is, ‘suck it, Jesus.’ This award is my god now.”

    In its story, the Associated Press would not reprint the “suck it, Jesus” line, instead reporting that Kathy “went on to hold up her Emmy, make an off-color remark about Christ.” According to the AP, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences said in a statement, “Kathy Griffin’s offensive remarks will not be part of the E! telecast on Saturday night.”

    I can imagine the outrage if she chose Allah or someone other than Jesus to say something this ugly and hateful about. I'm glad it won't be broadcast, anyways. Unreal, just unreal.

    I have no idea who Kathy Griffin is- that's a bit rough saying that about Jesus, like the 'suck it' bit...with so many Americans being Jesus lovers, she will be sure to have offended a ton of people.

    Hahahahahaha! I heard her say it in her standup routine...but I didn't actually think she did it! I guess I was wrong! WTG, Kathy!!! I would have thought it funny! LOL

    Oh, I guess she didn't give us the WHOLE story! I only heard her version if she lost...or maybe that was from last year!

    Hmmmm...yes...she can be a bit controversial. However, I am not offended by her humor. I am more offended when people like B. S. thank God for their accomplishments! How sacreligious is that?!

    Actually, I can find the humor in it. I am sorry you can't. God didn't make us to be so serious minded, imo. : )

    Hey DK- if you hear a rumour I have converted to Christianity, it's not true!-

    but even I think saying 'suck it Jesus' is a tad rude, people like her enjoy offending people and you'd do well to just ignore them.

    Really, I can't see much humour in her saying that- I sorta kinda chuckled when she said "I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus"....but saying 'suck it Jesus' is maybe pushing it, I doubt he wants to suck anything she has to offer lol

    She does push it to the limit...but humor is subjective.

    Why some people tend to take it too far is beyond me. I'm getting tired of controversy ... it's so last year.

    Anyone watch her reality show?When she played on Suddenly Susan,I really didn't like her.But when she started doing her reality show I started understanding her more and more.Now I like her.I think that show was good for her (unlike the Scott Baio 40 and single one,he comes off like such a jerk to me)

    One show she went to Iraq to give a show( ) Her and her husband were fine,he was doing her hair ect.Then I missed some shows and when I came back she was going on dates So what in the world happened with her and her husband?Anyone know?



    The suck it part is the only part I don't care for.The rest of it I got a good chuckle

    I'm a big, BIG fan of her's and I was even offended. I agree with her that too many people thank Jesus simply because they try and be humble, but my opinion is that if you don't want to thank God, then don't. But then just don't say anything about that subject. There's no need to be offensive.

    I have always thought she is funny too, BUT I agree that she doesn't need to be offensive.

    But what if someone is sincere in thanking God? And how do you know whether or not they are? I mean if I won something (lottery please) I'd probably thank my folks first, but I'd likely thank God as well and mean it.

    Okay, what's wrong with me here - I don't like her at all and her voice irritates the crap outta me -
