Kathy Griffin won an emmy award for her reality show " My life on the D list." In her speech, Griffin said that a lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus.
She went on to hold up her emmy, make an off-color remark about Christ and proclaim,"This award is my god now!"
She joked that an award would move her to the C - List. She was right "C" as in censured.
The TV Academy said that her raucous acceptance speech will be edited when the event, which was taped, is shown this Saturday on the E!
Do you agree with the TV Academy? How far is too far? I have not seen or heard her on the emmy awards show.
I do believe that these awards show should be about accepting the awards for the talent that your peers have recognized about you. Political and religious remarks should be restrained or respectfully kept at a minimun without offending what others believe got them where they are in the business. I.E. I want to thank The Lord, Jesus, God, Allah for this award.
At the same time when is censorship to be applied?
