In a recent social media spectacle, Kathy Griffin, a self-proclaimed comedian known more for her vitriolic disdain for former President Trump than her comedic prowess, once again found herself in the crosshairs of public scrutiny.
This time, it’s not for her controversial political statements, but for a shocking image of her newly tattooed lips.
Griffin, who has been struggling to maintain relevance in the entertainment industry, took to Instagram earlier this month to unveil her latest attempt at grabbing headlines.
She posted a photo of her lips, freshly inked and in the throes of the healing process. The image was accompanied by a video where she humorously asked her followers for their opinions on her new look.

The response from the public, however, was far from favorable. The comments section under Griffin’s post was flooded with harsh criticism and mockery.
One user likened her appearance to “aging like expired milk,” while another suggested even Trump, whom Griffin has repeatedly targeted with her hate-filled rhetoric, aged better. Others expressed shock and dismay at the drastic transformation of her face.
Griffin’s controversial antics are nothing new.
In 2020, she made headlines when she suggested to CNN’s Jim Acosta that he could kill President Trump with a syringe filled with air.
This dangerous suggestion was met with widespread condemnation. Yet, Griffin seemed unfazed by the backlash, further fueling her reputation as a Trump-hating provocateur.
This is not the first time Griffin’s actions landed her in hot water. She previously received a visit from the Secret Service, following a stunt involving a beheaded effigy of Trump. This incident not only resulted in public outrage, but also led to her being placed on Interpol’s watch list.

Despite the continuous controversy surrounding her, Griffin seems determined to stay in the public eye, no matter the cost.
Her recent lip tattoo reveal is just the latest in a series of desperate attempts to remain relevant. However, the overwhelmingly negative response suggests that the public is growing weary of her antics.
Kathy Griffin’s recent lip tattoo reveal has once again put her in the spotlight, but for all the wrong reasons. As she continues to court controversy, one can’t help but wonder if her desperate attempts to stay relevant are doing more harm than good.
Only time will tell if she learns from these experiences or continues down this path of self-destruction.
