Kathy Griffin Agrees Redheads Are Still Bully Targets

Why is bullying still accepted when it comes to those with red hair?

Kathy Griffin is a redhead actress and comedian, and is best known for her abrasive and self-deprecating humor. She’s recorded numerous stand-up specials and even broke the Guinness World Record for most stand-up comedy specials by a comedian, which she received in 2013. She’s also cameoed in several television series and movies. 

Kathy has naturally curly red hair which she talks about often. She is back on tour with her stand-up show called “My Life on the PTSD List”. In honor of her new show, she’s been conducting interviews and radio spots. Recently she spoke with hosts on i95 (a radio station out of Connecticut) where she spoke about her experience being a redhead.

Lou, one of the i95 hosts and also a natural redhead, tells Kathy, “I am a redhead, you are a redhead. Did you know that redheads are the last human beings on Earth that you can openly ridicule for the way they look to their face and in public?”

Kathy thanks him for sticking up for gingers and talks about how redheads are special and sensitive. The two redheads then talk about how much being a redhead hardened them and being picked on helped them develop the comedic voice they have today. Kathy goes on to talk about how girls in her Catholic school would “jump her” and the nuns wouldn’t stick up for her.  

Kathy isn’t the only celeb who said being a redhead changed their life experience and helped their career, and we’re sure she won’t be the last.

Here are some famous redhead comedians who discuss being teased but now celebrated for their hair:

1. Conan O’Brien
2. Carrot Top (Scott Thompson)
3. Tim Minchin
4. Jessica Chaffin
5. Kathy Najimy
6. Kevin Rooney
7. Janeane Garofalo
8. Marcia Wallace (known for her voice work as Edna Krabappel on “The Simpsons”)
