Trump-hating comedian Kathy Griffin reportedly fainted during her live comedy show while performing in Dublin, Ireland this week; fueling speculation about the liberal comic’s health after a year of scandals and career setbacks.
According to Fox News, the 57-year-old comedian passed-out near the end of her nearly two-hour long show, telling the audience “I’m going down” before collapsing. Griffin’s longtime boyfriend rushed onto the stage and carried her off.
“I’m embarrassed more than anything. This one’s for you, Wendy Williams. Girl down. I had a girl-down moment,” she joked on social media, referring to Williams’ own on-air collapse late last month. “Anyway, the audience was fantastic, and thank you for being forgiving and understanding.”
“I promise to be upright the entire show next time,” she added.
Kathy Griffin made national headlines earlier this year when she posted images of herself holding Donald Trump’s “severed head” during a tasteless photoshoot widely condemned on both sides of the aisle.
The ensuing controversy cost the comedian an entire comedy tour, as well as her yearly gig as co-host of CNN’s New Year’s coverage.
