Kathy Griffin speaks out on recent teen suicides

HollywoodNews.com: If you watched Larry King Live, then you know that straight ally Kathy Griffin is damned serious when it comes to bullying and teen suicides.

The Emmy-winning comedienne did not crack a joke during the entire hour of a panel King hosted on teen bullying that also included Wanda Sykes, Nate Berkus, Tim Gunn, Chely Wright and Lance Bass.

Kathy announced that she would be donating her entire salary from her Dec. 16 concert at the Gibson Ampitheatre in Universal City to The Trevor Project.

Kathy has also just released this video where she repeats her claim that “trickle down homophobia” from political and religious leaders is to blame for making gays feel inferior and for the bullying that has led to the suicides.

“All you anti-gay public figures, and you know who you are, you have the blood of these dead teens in your hands,” she says.
