A few days ago, as you've surely heard by now, Kathy Griffin released some images from a photo shoot she did with Tyler Shields.
In the most scandalous photos, Kathy was holding a model of what looked like Donald Trump's bloody decapitated head.
It did not go over well.
In one fell swoop, she managed to piss off the entire internet — and she even deeply disturbed Trump and his family.
She was fired from a few gigs, dragged all to hell in the media, both traditional and social … it was bad.
And though she released a video apologizing for the photo shortly after it was published, today she did a press conference addressing the ongoing controversy.
In the conference, which Kathy did alongside her lawyer, she was very emotional, and at one point, she even broke down.
"I don't think I will have a career after this," she said. "I think he … I'm going to be honest, he broke me. He broke me, and then I was like, 'No, this isn't right.'"
She said that she was sincere in her original apology, but that she feels that Trump and his team are trying to turn the controversy into a distraction.
About her CNN firing, she said it was "sad" and "hurtful."
"There's a bunch of old white guys trying to silence me, and I'm just hear to say that's wrong," she continued. "You don't have to like me, but you shouldn't silence a comic."
She also pointed out how strange it is that the President of the United States is going after, in her words, "D-list comedian Kathy Griffin."
As she said in her apology, she did cross a line with the photo, but she still feels like the backlash is extreme.
After all, she's hardly the first famous person to criticize Trump in such a brutal way, but she's the first to get destroyed over it.
Check out the press conference in the video below:
Jenelle Evans is without question one of the more outspoken stars of MTV’s Teen Mom franchise.
By which, of course, we mean she bites the hand that feeds her on a regular basis and seems hell-bent on getting fired and alienating as many fans as possible in the process.
Like so many of her co-stars, Jenelle has accused MTV editors of creating false narratives and going out of their way to portray her in a negative light.
Usually, these allegations elicit face-palms aplenty from Teen Mom 2 fans, most of whom have watched Jenelle earn her place as the show’s resident loose cannon though nearly a decade of erratic behavior.
Many have implored Jenelle to STFU for the sake of her family, as the show is her sole means of support,
And with her reputation and rap sheet, it seems unlikely that Evans would be able to find employment that would allow her to comfortably provide for herself and her three kids.
In short, viewers believe Jenelle’s finger-pointing at MTV is just a lot of #FakeNews melodrama.
Now, however, Jenelle has leveled an accusation that many fans seem to believe is not only legit, but necessary.
Earlier this week, a fan of the show criticized Jenelle, and suggested that her divisive mother, Barabara Evans (who currently has custody of Jenelle’s eldest son, Jace), should have custody of all three of Jenelle’s kids.
Surprisingly, the official Teen Mom 2 Twitter account actually engaged the fan in a discussion on the subject, asking:
“Do you think Jenelle is ready to have custody of Jace?”
Jenelle witnessed the exchange and responded immediately:
“Why would u respond to someone being so negative towards me?!! You already knew their answer, my god,” Evans tweeted, adding:
“The drama never ends with MTV.”
The argument seemed to back up a claim that Jenelle has been making for years:
She believes that MTV wants Barbara to retain custody of Jace, as the arrangement generates conflict between mother and daughter, and thus, ratings for the long-running reality series.
The custody battle between Jenelle and Barbara has been a central storyline for several seasons, and its not hard to see why Jenelle would believe that the show’s producers are hoping to keep it going.
Jenelle isn’t the most stable mom on the planet, and most of her paranoid conspiracy theories are likely nothing more than that.
But even a broken clock is right twice a day, and in her accusations of collusion between Barbara and MTV, Jenelle might be onto something.
Watch Teen Mom 2 online to relive the long-running conflict between the women of the Evans clan.
Jenelle Evans is one of those people who, no matter how bad their behavior, will never admit that they’re capable of doing anything wrong.
For example, remember when Jenelle was arrested in August of 2015 for throwing a glass at Nathan Griffith’s then-girlfriend’s head?
She could have seriously injured her, and she’s lucky she didn’t, but when she went to court, she started crying about how she only did it because she was scared for her and her son’s safety.
She couldn’t admit that perhaps throwing a glass at someone’s head was wrong — no, she had to make herself the victim.
And, believe it or not (just kidding, it’s the easiest thing in the world to believe), Jenelle hasn’t changed a bit in all this time.
We know that because of her ridiculous reaction to last night’s episode of Teen Mom 2.
In case you missed it, Jenelle had a bit of a falling out with her mother, Barbara. It started when Barbara misunderstood something Jenelle told her during a phone call.
Jenelle told her mom that Nathan was picking up their son, Kaiser, at her house, but Barbara thought Jenelle said that she’d have to come to her house to pick up Jace.
Not a big deal, right? But to Jenelle, it really, really was.
She started yelling at her, right in front of Jace, who just looked so very, very sad. It was hard to watch.
A bit later, Jenelle met up with Barbara to hand off Jace, and being the mature adult woman that she is, pretended to do important business on her phone instead of speaking to her mother.
David talked to Barbara instead, but that wasn’t right either — Jenelle told him to stop talking to her because he was only giving her more airtime on the show.
Because that’s the only logical explanation for why he’d be talking to her. They should have just left Jace in some parking lot and texted Barb the coordinates, that would really show her.
But anyway, Barbara tried to talk to her brat of a daughter, but Jenelle wasn’t having it.
She even called her a bitch, because of … reasons.
So judging by all that we saw from Jenelle in that episode, she’s pretty much an unreasonable, irrational mess, right?
But this morning, she took to Twitter to defend herself.
“If you guys only saw the texts messages between my mother and I,” she wrote. “Shows a lot of truth to why I freak out on her so suddenly.”
“My mother is ruining our relationship as mother and daughter. It’s only getting worse.”
Because she’s totally blameless, right? Does she forget that Barbara only has custody of Jace because Jenelle gave it to her so she could party and do drugs instead of raise her kid?
“My feelings are extremely hurt,” Jenelle continued, “and this is why I do not attend the live shows. My mentality is very important for my three children.”
… Except Jenelle did go to a live show. Actually she flew out to L.A. for a live show, leaving her newborn daughter at home, and when she somehow missed the taping, she decided to stay for an extra week to attend the next live show.
After getting so much backlash, Jenelle ended up just going home, but the point is the same — to say that “this is why I do not attend the live shows” is just the latest in a string of dumb statements.
For what it’s worth, Jenelle told a fan that she’s “working on freaking out in front of the kids,” so that’s good, we guess.
Silver linings and all that.

Blake Shelton is not about to let the latest winner of The Voice become a casualty of mismanagement from Universal Records.
Blake mentored Sundance Head throughout the competition and played a huge part in why his act managed to win the crown.
Sundance Head was already a contestant on American Idol Season 6, so Blake no doubt wants to make sure he does not slip into oblivion again.
Speaking to reporters after Tuesday’s season finale, Blake had much to say on the matter.
“I want to say one more thing here, because it’s important. I want to personally issue a challenge to Universal Records. This is Season 11 of ‘The Voice,’ and I’m sitting here right now next to a guy who has won over America’s hearts,” Blake said.
“He’s so popular. He has proven that he sells tons of music… I hope that we can all come together — meaning us and Universal Records-[because] this is the guy that I think can break the mold and become a star out of this show.”
There’s no denying that Universal Records has a terrible track record of making any of the winners of the show have much in the way of longevity.
It sucks because people expect to have their career carved out for them after winning the show, but few of the winners have actually released an album.
“I give my word that I’ll put my work in, and I know [Sundance] will,” Blake said.
“This guy deserves to be a star, and there’s no excuses anymore. We need to make the record and put the work behind it that he deserves, to have this success that he deserves. And that has to start with Universal Records getting involved and behind him.”
“We do so much great s**t for these singers, and then they go to a record label that I won’t mention. But they go to a record label that f**ks it up,” he said.
There’s nothing like telling it how it is. Right?
Universal Records have yet to respond to Blake’s comments, but they certainly won’t be happy about them.
How would you feel if someone was trashing your record label?
Maybe this will be the thing that leads to Blake parting ways with the show.
There has been rumblings that he and Adam Levine are close to being finished with the show.
Maybe they’re just sick of nurturing these artists to just disappear.
It’s a tiring process enough without watching people lose their chances.
Either way, we’ll need to stay tuned to find out whether Sundance Head goes the way of the flip phone.
Sound off below with your thoughts on the matter.
