More celebrities have worked their way into the conversation about Kathy Griffin’s poorly received “severed head” stunt targeting Donald Trump.
Jim Carrey, asked by ET about when comedians cross the line, appeared to defend the outrageous act. Appearing at the premiere of the new Showtime comedy “I’m Dying Up Here,” Carrey said: “I think it is the job of a comedian to cross the line at all times — because that line is not real.”
Carrey added: “If you step out into that spotlight and you’re doing the crazy things that [Trump is] doing … we’re the last line of defense. And really, the comedians are the last voice of truth in this whole thing. … It’s impossible to get away from it.”
Rosie O’Donnell, meanwhile, got into it on Twitter with a user who said her heart was broken because of the TMZ report about Barron Trump thinking something had happened to his father. O’Donnell has a long history of clashes with Donald Trump.
A report on TheBlaze says O’Donnell “reframed the argument to attack President Trump, wondering if Barron saw reports on the two men stabbed to death and another wounded on a Portland, Oregon, train after coming to the defense of Muslim females getting insulted and berated by another passenger. O’Donnell then wrote that such ‘hatred’ has been ‘promoted by his father.’”
