Once, when she won an award called Emmy for her TV show "My Life on the D List," Griffin gave a speech that caused problems, and she got fired from a show on Disney called "Hannah Montana." There was also a time when she said some bad words during a performance at New York's Apollo Theatre, and they didn't let her come back.
On May 30, 2017, Kathy did something that made a lot of people mad. She posted a video online where she was holding a fake head that looked like it belonged to President Donald Trump, and it was covered in fake blood.
Later, Griffin took it down and said sorry. Because of this, she lost her job as a spokesperson for a company called Squatty Potty.
