Kathy Griffin shares list of words that ‘offend the young gays’ she promises to never say again
Kathy Griffin listed all the words that “offend the young gays” which she promises not to say anymore.
The iconic comedian appeared at the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Hearts of Gold concert on Saturday, September 21.
The concert celebrated 50 years of the organisation fighting for LGBT+ rights and equality, and included performances from Sia, Rufus Wainwright, Jenifer Lewis and Melissa Etheridge, along with outspoken comedian Griffin.
According to Advocate, Griffin’s performance was an “in memoriam of very inappropriate words that I probably won’t say again … [because] I’ve evolved as an artiste, as an ally”.
She began with “tranny,” and also listed “dykes on bikes” and “gash gobbler.”
“Ladyboy,” she said, “hurts all the generations, especially all the Malaysian friends and family.”
Of “doughnut bumper,” she said: “Doughnuts are a very good food group, and a vagina doesn’t really look like a doughnut. It looks like a beautiful rose.”

Similarly, Griffin said she would no longer use “clam snacker” because “vaginas don’t actually have shells”.
She finished her performance by saying: “Finally, to show I haven’t lost my edge, two more words we have to say goodbye to as a community because we’ve just gone beyond it, and they’re bad for the community. Those two words are Andy Cohen.”
Kathy Griffin has had a long-running feud with Andy Cohen.
Griffin shocked America when she posed for photographs holding a bloodied, ‘beheaded’ Donald Trump in 2017, and she was subsequently fired by CNN.
It was then announced that Cohen would replace Griffin as the co-host of CNN’s New Year’s Eve special with Anderson Cooper, and in an October 2017 interview with TMZ he pretended not to know who she was.
