Comedian Kathy Griffin, who was largely denounced for posting a photo of herself holding a faux severed head of President Donald Trump, certainly enjoys mocking authority figures, and during her acceptance speech for the "Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards," she blasted people who thank Jesus, declared Jesus had nothing to do with her winning, and shouted, "Suck it, Jesus!"

Griffin has been nominated nine times for a "Primetime Emmy Award." In both 2007 and 2008 she was nominated and won the "Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Reality Program." The reality show was Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List.

During her acceptance speech in 2007, Griffin said, "A lot of people come up here and they thank Jesus for this award."

"I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus," she said. "He didn't help me a bit. If it was up to him, Cesar Millan would be up here with that damned dog." 

Griffin continued, "So, all I can say is, suck it, Jesus! This award is my God now!"

Kathy Griffin, 56, has appeared in numerous second-tier films and television programs. She is a stand-up comedian who tours the United States with her act. Because of the criticism over the Trump-decapitation picture, Griffin apologized. However, CNN announced it was terminating her from hosting CNN's New Year's Eve special with co-host Anderson Cooper.
