Kathy Griffin got booed in Ireland right before she passed out on stage.
The balding, washed up, looney, and Irish American comedian came on stage in Dublin to tell the Irish crowd…
–it was nice “being in the United Kingdom.”
Irish Central reports…
Kathy Griffin was booed by the crowd at her Dublin performance on Wednesday, November 8 after she mistakenly included Ireland as part of the United Kingdom.
She stated it was nice “being in the United Kingdom,” and seemed genuinely shocked when the friendly crowd suddenly turned to her booing and catcalling.
Griffin became so startled she had difficulty continuing with her routine, The New York Times reported. Most of the Irish people at the show in Vicar Street clearly believed Griffin, an Irish American, should have known better.
She has been a frequent visitor there and visited her grandmother’s hometown of Drogheda in Co. Louth in 2007with a TV camera in tow. Her Irish escapades were filmed for her Bravo series “My Life on the D List.” She was given a civic reception
On Wednesday in Griffin gave what the New York Times called a “wild two hour and fifteen-minute performance” and compared her to Lenny Bruce.
The crowd showed sympathy for Griffin, who used her sudden fainting spell to avoid further backlash from the audience.
