Trump supporters harassing Carnegie Hall over Kathy Griffin show


Kathy Griffin is currently on her “Laugh Your Head Off” Tour which will hit NYC at Radio City Music Hall on June 25 and Carnegie Hall on June 26. Tickets for the Radio City shows are still available.

Griffin backed off her initial apology and has continued to say a lot of stuff about Trump, and recently slammed First Lady Melania Trump for her “both sides” stance on the current family separation policy:

Kathy supporters have also launched a campaign to counter the haters, and are also reaching out to venues like Carnegie Hall to let them know that they are happy about the booking (incidentally, the Carnegie Hall show is a Live Nation produced event, so Carnegie Hall themselves aren’t even fully involved in the decision).

Kathy has also responded to these “cancel” tweets:

Someone also recently tried to get Kathy thrown off Twitter for her comments on Melania but Twitter saw no reason to do so:
