Explaining why she wouldn’t be one of the celebrities who joined millions of women (and men) across the world for a second year of the Women’s March this weekend, Kathy Griffin claimed her presence was “not welcome.”
“So, yeah, after all these months, I’m still not welcome at #WomensMarch2018 etc. (For now). But I support you!!!” she wrote on social media Saturday.
Although the comedian did not go into details about her claim, she shared her message alongside a black-and-white version of her infamous photo holding a mask of Donald Trump’s bloodied head, which seemed to imply the controversial photo was the reason she felt she wasn’t welcome.
Although Griffin initially apologized for the photo, she walked back on those comments during an interview with BBC World News program HardTalk in November when she said wasn’t sorry for sharing the photo.
“I’m not sorry. I take the apology back 1,000 percent,” Griffin said. “The reason I made the apology is when the image went out, I thought people would just think, ‘That’s Kathy doing another shocking image.’ ”
“I’ve done many throughout my entire career, and I’ve done many shocking things,” she added. “When I won my first Emmy I said, ‘Suck it, Jesus, because this award is my God now!’ And you know, the conservatives took ads out it the papers. That’s what they like to spend their time and money on. So yes, I knew what I was doing.”
Griffin went on to explain that she felt motivated to apologize originally when “good friend” Rosie O’Donnell — whom Griffin called “the preeminent expert of being trolled by this fool, ‘the Accidental President’ ” — likened the photo to Daniel Pearl, the American journalist who was beheaded in Pakistan.

“She said, ‘What if Daniel Pearl’s mother saw this?’ ” Griffin recalled. “When she said that, I thought, ‘Oh my gosh.’ I’ve never apologized for a joke. I get it.”
After the image went viral, Griffin claimed she received hate mail and death threats from Trump supporters and was put under federal investigation for two months (she remains on the no-fly list and has been detained at every airport she’s flown to since, she says). Some of her tour dates of were canceled, and she was fired from her gig co-hosting CNN’s New Year’s Eve Live show (which she had for nearly 10 years). Griffin also lost high-profile friends, including CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

“It’s frizzy right now, but it’s coming back,” she continued before revealing that she was “actually” a fan of the hairstyle on her now.

At the 2018 Golden Globes stars teamed together for an unprecedented red carpet experience. Many actresses (and actors) supported the Time’s Up initiative by wearing black outfits to make a statement against sexual harassment in the entertainment industry and beyond. But will the all-black trend continue at the SAG Awards this weekend? According to stylist sources, no; though you may see stars in black just because it’s timeless and chic, the red carpet blackout was limited to the Golden Globes to kick off the Time’s Up movement in style.
Be sure to check out PEOPLE’s full SAG Awards coverage to get the latest news on Hollywood’s big night.
Over 300 prominent forces in the entertainment industry, including Reese Witherspoon and Eva Longoria, joined together to form the Time’s Up initiative to help fight systemic sexual harassment and workplace inequality. Among the many ways they set about making a change in the industry is by urging attendees to wear black at the Golden Globes to send a united message.
“This is not a moment, it’s a movement,” Longoria, Witherspoon’s date for the evening, said on the red carpet at the Golden Globes. “Tonight is just one small part of that.”
Stylists appear to be ready to celebrate color for awards shows going forward. The Critics’ Choice Awards had a red carpet that was packed with prints, color and embellishment, and stylists including Christina Erlich (who dresses Alison Brie and Greta Gerwig, among others) have given glimpses of the rainbow of colors we might expect at the SAG Awards.

In addition to their style statement and empowering messages, Time’s Up also created a Legal Defense Fund, which has raised over $16 million to provide legal support to women and men who have experienced harassment, assault or abuse in the workplace.
To show your support of the initiative, you can buy the Time’s Up pin, T-Shirts, baby onesies, totes, notebooks and stickers at the Time’s Up shop and wear your merch while you cheer on the stars at the SAG Awards. (Alternatively, you could bid on one of the gowns worn on the red carpet at the Golden Globes – the proceeds will also benefit Time’s Up.)
The 24th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards are broadcast live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on both TNT and TBS starting at 8 p.m. ET.
